Healthy Banana Oatmeal Waffles

Sharing is caring!

I love pancakes and waffles, but they aren’t the healthiest foods on the planet, at least not until I created this recipe! I live a healthy lifestyle and still want to enjoy my waffles and pancakes, so I came up with this healthy alternative that tastes just as delicious!

Bananas: when using bananas for this recipe, they need to be ripe; a few brown spots on the peel means they’re ready to go

Milk: I prefer unsweetened almond milk, but the reality is that any milk you have on hand will work

Egg: applesauce works in a pinch if you want to make this recipe vegan

Cinnamon: this ingredient is optional, but it adds a warmth to the batter

Baking powder: this is one of the places where gluten sometimes hides, so make sure you’re baking powder is gluten free

Oats: rolled, quick, it doesn’t matter…just make sure they’re gluten free

Salt: salt in baked goods is used as a flavor enhancer; it helps the other ingredients meld together, but you shouldn’t really taste the saltiness

This recipe makes a single serving, but you can easily multiply it to make a healthy breakfast for your whole family to enjoy! A few notes about making multiple servings:

  1. To make 4 servings: add 4 bananas, 3 cups gluten free oats, 2 eggs, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsp vanilla extract, and 1 cup milk.
  2. You’ll notice I only increased the eggs to 2 instead of 4. That’s because they are binding ingredients and 2 will suffice for 4 servings.
  3. Use a large capacity, high-powered blender.

Optional add-ins:

  • chocolate chips
  • blueberries
  • pecan pieces
  • chopped walnuts

Stir add-ins into batter by hand

Let’s get to the recipe so you can start enjoying these yummy waffles! Unless you’d prefer pancakes, because this batter also makes delicious pancakes!
