One Bowl Oatmeal Applesauce Waffles

This waffle recipe is so simple that it comes together almost as quickly as a bowl of cereal. (Ok, not quite that quickly, but close!). If you don't have oatmeal flour, you can make your own by grinding up oats to a fine powder using a blender or food processor. Be sure to generously grease your waffle iron before adding the batter (even if has a non-stick surface), as this helps to make the waffles light and crispy.
Serves: 4
  • 1½ cups oat flour (if you have gluten issues, look for a certified gluten free product)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 heaping tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 single-size container (or ½ cup) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup plain yogurt (2% or higher)
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • Butter or coconut oil for the waffle iron
  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, flax seed, cinnamon and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the apple sauce, maple syrup, vanilla, yogurt and milk and whisk until everything is well combined, then whisk in the oil.
  3. Let the batter stand for several minutes while you heat up your waffle iron. If the batter is too thick (you want it to be a pourable consistency similar to a cake batter), thin it out with a little extra milk.
  4. Bake the waffles in your waffle iron, following the manufacturer's directions, until they are dark brown, greasing the iron generously with butter or coconut oil between each batch.
  5. Serve the hot waffles immediately with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
