I am always trying to come up with healthy alternatives for old favorites. My kids are big fans of waffles, but I wasn’t happy with how much white flour and sugar are in traditional recipes. Using our favorite Buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes as inspiration, I created a brand new waffle recipe that is gluten free, refined sugar free and full of good protein and fat. You can also easily make substitutions for dairy free and vegan. We are huge fans of our Healthy Almond Oat Waffles!
- 2 cups oat flour (make your own by putting 3 cups oats in food processor)
- 1 cup almond flour
- tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup milk

- Begin by combining oat flour, almond flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

- Next add milk, eggs, maple syrup and melted butter.
- Stir until combined.
- Add approximately ½ cup of batter to waffle iron and cook according to waffle maker directions.
