Oatmeal Wafers Two Ways (Gluten & Sugar Free) From front On A Board

I know wafles are a huge favorite for many people. And I totally get the hype! They are both festive, delicious and can be varied endlessly. For me waffles are something that I don’t make very often, instead I see it as that something extra you make for special occasions. But wafers can be made in so many other ways than just using regular waffle batter! Like these oatmeal waffles! These wafles are made just as it sounds – from cooked oatmeal! It’s a great way of both reinventing how to eat oatmeal and waffles at the same time. It is also healthier, more nutritious and a really fun way of twisting things up. I used two different porridge blend when making these oatmeal waffles. One is made using this apple cinnamon porridge blend and the second one is made with this cardamom and seed porridge blend (I will provide alternative options for these porridge blend below). They are then topped with Greek yogurt, granola, more porridge blend, fried apples and fresh blueberries. These waffles are great to serve both for breakfast, brunch, lunch or as a sweet treat. They are both gluten and sugar free.

A few tips:

  • I used this apple cinnamon porridge blend for the apple wafer. But you can also combine oats, diced apples, cinnamon and chia seeds instead.
  • I used this cardamom and seed porridge blend for the cardamom and seed wafers. But you can also combine oats, cardamom, sunflower seeds, chia seeds.
  • I topped my waffles with above cardamom porridge blend and this chocolate granola. But you can use any topping you like, prefer or have at home.
  • Grease the waffles machine well using either coconut oil or olive oil so the wafers doesn’t stick.
  • Make sure the waffle machine is really hot before you add the porridge to them, to make sure they get crunchy, golden brown but not dry.
