Wheat-Free Blueberry Waffles

Wheat-Free Blueberry Waffles

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Pretty watery, so I ended up having to make pancakes with them. I added probably a little over 1/4 cup Cracker Barrel pancake mix (Bisquick would probably be the same) & they turned more pancake like after cooking them on a griddle. I actually really liked them.

Yeah... um... this recipe is a dud. Definitely skip it and try the other one they recommend.

Thumbs WAY up! (with minor modifications)

We made some minor changes because we did not have any eggs and it turned out FANTASTIC!!!

We used less water, about 1Cup of water to 2Cups of quick oats. We also added 1/2Tbsp. of baking powder, 3/4Cup Flour, 1/4Cup Vegitable oil. Oh yes, we also let it stand for about 10-15 minutes. We lightly brushed mix of vegitable oil and melted butter to the waffle iron....We were out of non-stick cooking spray also :)

We made a simple blueberry syrup to top, instead of adding it to the batter. 2C Blueberries, 1Tbsp Butter, 1/2C Sugar, Juice of 1/2 medium sized orange. Bring to boil in small pot and then reduce to simmer for about 15 minutes. You can let it simmer longer for desired thickness of syrup.

We will definitely be doing this one again.

Thanks Mr. Breakfast
