Wheat-Free Blueberry Waffles

(2 servings)

  • 2 and 1/2 cups cold water
  • 2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
Preheat waffle iron on medium setting. Blend water, oats, pecans, salt, vanilla, and honey until smooth.

(It wasn't specified by the submitter... but we assume at this point you would fold in the blueberries.)

Pour about one cup of batter into preheated, oiled waffle iron, leaving a little space around the edges. The batter will spread out to the edges when the top is closed. Bake 10-12 minutes without peeking.

Uh Oh! Thumbs Down!

A breakfast lover named Paul S. wrote in with some bad news about this recipe, "As posted, this recipe is pretty much inedible. I was a little skeptical with no "glue" (i.e. eggs) or anything to make the waffles rise. But I figured I'd give it a shot. What I got was a starchy glob with colored specks. Not even the dog would eat it (really, we tried)." Sorry to hear that neither you or or dog liked this one.

Based on Paul's email and two others we received, I'd like to offer an alternative recipe that I've had personal success with:


The orginal recipe posted by "goodforyou" is kind of fascinating concept. It basically amounts to oatmeal that's flash-baked in a waffle iron. If anyone has had success with with this original recipe, I'd love to hear from you and learn about any ingredient modifications you may have made.

Good topped with peanut butter and sliced bananas.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank goodforyou for this recipe.
