Oat and Cashew Waffles

Oat and Cashew Waffles

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup water
Using a food processor or a blender, grind together the oats & cashews. Be careful not to over-grind otherwise you will get a butter-like consistency.

Add the salt, oil & water & blend thoroughly.

Pour the batter into a waffle iron & leave a few minutes until cooked. Serve with plenty of maple syrup.

Note From Recipe Submitter:
I was as surprised as anyone that this recipe works so well. There's no baking powder or baking soda and I leave out any sugar or honey so the syrup (or desired topping) provides all the sweetness.

Cashews and oats are ground together to create a flavorful flour that, in turn, creates a flavorful waffle.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.

These are some dense waffles! Mine did not end up looking like the photo above. My husband said they looked like concrete bricks. I will admit they were intimidating to look at. The taste was a bit bland for me. There must be a way to add more flavor and lighten them up a bit.

I've been making this recipe, courtesy of the "Oats, Peas, Beans & Barley" cookbook, for over 20 years. Best waffles ever. I usually use almonds, but pecans rock, as well.

The oats make the waffles nice an filling. I used vanilla extract instead of almond, also took about 15 mins to cook in my waffle iron. Once you know that though it's okay as you just pop them on earlier.

I substituted the cashews for hazelnuts and added Almond Extract. Great with natural maple syrup.

Make it EVEN healthier: Substitute 5 grain rolled cereal instead of just oatmeal and 1 tble almond oil instead of veg oil. NO salt. Increase water to 1 and 1/4 cups. Don't over bake. Take out while the edges of the waffle are still moist. I used Smart Balance spread (no trans fats) and no sugar added applesauce instead of maple syrup. Everything healthy is a little weird until you get used to it. BUT WOW WHAT DIFFERENCE IN MY CHOLESTEROL COUNT. Not bad!
