Oat Waffles

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but usually ends up being the most hurried meal as we rush off to our busy day.

This is an easy waffle with only six ingredients, and has been a loved staple at my mother’s breakfast table for years. It is really just the base for many creative variations and toppings. Fresh fruit, maple syrup, apple sauce and cinnamon, a little sprinkle of coconut palm sugar or perhaps a drizzle of chocolate? A breakfast fit for a king.


2 cups One Degree Organics Quick Oats
2 cups water
1/2 cup cashews (or nuts of choice such as walnuts, almonds, pecans)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 Medjool dates


Preheat waffle iron. Place all ingredients in the blender and process until very smooth.

Once waffle iron is ready, coat with non-stick cooking spray if needed, and pour on about 1 cup of batter (the amount needed will vary depending on the size or shape of your waffle iron). The batter will thicken as it sits, so add a little more water if needed.

Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions and then remove and place on a baking rack.

Serve immediately with desired toppings, such as fresh fruit and maple syrup.

Store leftover waffles in a freezer-safe bag and reheat in the toaster for best results.



*These waffles are excellent frozen and can be toasted up as needed. I like to split mine in half and heat in the toaster until warm.
