How To Make Blueberry Waffles
Start by making oat flour. It's easy to do with rolled oats! Measure and blend in a food processor or blender with all ingredients except the blueberries. When the batter is smooth, fold the blueberries in by hand.
I recommend using frozen wild blueberries for this batter that have been thawed prior to baking. I've found frozen do better in this recipe instead of fresh blueberries. I like the wild blueberries because they're smaller which means the batter won't break from the weight of the blubs!
Once your batter is ready, add half of it to a preheated waffle maker. I spray mine with avocado oil to prevent sticking. Note, I have a double waffle maker so if yours is smaller you will use a quarter of the batter.
This batter will be very thick and take slightly longer to bake than other waffle batters, but it will spread during baking and turn out golden brown with a little patience!
I also want to note that I do not like my waffles (or any food) very sweet. These waffles are sugar free so, if you like yours sweeter than you could add one or two tablespoons of real maple syrup to the batter. My weight loss clients find after working with me that they don't need this though. 😉
More Waffles To Try
Healthy Blueberry Oat Waffles
- Add the rolled oats, applesauce, milk, lemon juice, vanilla extract and baking powder to a food processor or blend. Blend 1-2 minutes until smooth then remove and manually fold the blueberries into the batter by hand. The batter will be thick.
- Add half the batter to the waffle maker and bake 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Note, I have a double waffle maker so if yours is smaller than you will use less batter ~1/2 cup.
- Carefully remove the waffle from the waffle maker and set aside on a wire baking rack or plate. Repeat step 3 to cook the remaining batter.
- Enjoy waffles immediately with 1-2 tablespoons of real maple syrup or drippy peanut butter. For meal prepping, cool completely then wrap in plastic wrap with foil over it and store in the refrigerator 5 days or in the freezer up to 60 days. Warm 30 seconds in the microwave!
