Oat Flour Waffles

Delicious light and crispy oat flour waffles that work in any waffle iron! The batter mixes up in five minutes, and you only need oat flour for the recipe—making them naturally gluten free!

Prep: 15Cook: 20Total: 35 minutes
Servings: 4 Belgian Waffles 1x


  • 1 ¾ cup oat flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ¼ cup milk of choice (dairy free or regular)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix: Add all of the ingredients to a blender (tip: add the wet ingredients first) and blend until smooth. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes to let the flour absorb the liquid. The batter will thicken slightly.
  2. Heat: While the batter rests, turn on your waffle iron and let it heat up for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Cook: Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray or brush it with oil. Pour the batter directly into the center of the heated waffle iron until it spreads across most of the bottom waffle plate. Close the lid and flip the iron if applicable. Cook for the recommended cooking time, or until your waffle iron stops steaming. We usually let it cook another minute after the steaming stops to get it golden crisp.
  4. Remove: Once cooked, transfer the waffle to a wire rack to cool. Don’t stack your waffles on top of each other or they’ll lose their crispiness.
  5. Repeat: Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm with butter, fresh fruit, or maple syrup!


  1. No blender? Just whisk the oat flour, baking powder, and sea salt together in a medium mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  2. Do not use canned coconut milk. Use a thinner milk like coconut milk from a carton.
  3. Want to add mix-ins? Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips, blueberries, or sliced bananas right on top of the batter just before you close the waffle iron.
  4. Make sure to add the wet ingredients to the blender first so the flour doesn’t get stuck at the bottom.
  5. When measuring, fluff the oat flour first in a container or bowl, then scoop it with a measuring cup and level it off when measuring. If you scoop your flour directly from the bag, it will pack it down and you’ll end up with too much flour.
  6. If your batter ends up being too thick to pour, add just a little more milk and stir until pourable.
  7. We recently invested in this ceramic waffle iron with removable plates and we love it! We cook our waffles for about 8 minutes as per the instructions for golden crisp waffles. This recipe made 4 round Belgian waffles in our waffle maker.
