I love oats not only for their health benefits but also for their ability to keep me feeling full in the morning, providing the energy I need to tackle the day ahead. However, as the weather gets hotter, my cravings shift towards waffles instead of a hot bowl of oatmeal. Fortunately, we've discovered a fantastic solution: oat waffles! This recipe has quickly become one of my all-time favorites. By incorporating bananas as a natural sweetener, the pancakes acquire a gentle, subtle sweetness that isn't overpowering. Moreover, the addition of cinnamon provides a delightful twist that I've come to appreciate.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (yields 4 servings)

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk or nut-based milk
  • 1 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Blend the ingredients in a blender until they form a smooth mixture.
  2. Spray some olive oil on the waffle maker and preheat it.
  3. Pour the prepared mixture into the waffle maker.
  4. Once the waffle maker signals that the waffles are ready (typically around 4-6 minutes), carefully open the waffle maker and remove the waffles.
  5. It's incredibly simple, isn't it? Enjoy the waffles on their own or top them with some Greek yogurt and fresh fruits for added delight!


  1. This recipe yields 8 waffles, with a suggested serving size of 2. To store leftovers, simply separate each waffle with parchment paper, place them in a zip lock bag, seal it tightly, and store it in the frozen compartment for future enjoyment. They can last around 3 months!
  2. When you want to enjoy them again, simply pop the desired number of waffles into a toaster and heat them for about 2 minutes or until they are delightfully warm.
