Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (or milk alternative)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Desired sweetener (i.e. packet of stevia, maple syrup, honey, etc. - optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.
  • Blend all ingredients in a blender until almost smooth. You may need to add a bit more milk if the batter still seems too thick.
  • Pour about 1 cup of the batter onto the waffle iron (the amount will depend on the size of your waffle iron). Allow waffle to cook. I cook mine on close to the highest setting (5/6) and about a minute or two after the waffle iron says it's ready, so that the waffles are a little more browned and crispy. If you prefer softer waffles, you can take them out when the buzzer goes off.
  • Repeat with remaining waffle batter. Serve warm with desired toppings!

Notes

  • Use overripe bananas for best results. The riper the bananas, the more sweetness and flavour they will contribute to the waffles.
  • I don't typically add sweetener to the waffles as I don't like my waffles to be overly sweet. You may wish to add some stevia, maple syrup, or honey (or other desired sweetener) to the waffle batter if you prefer sweeter waffles.
  • The longer the batter sits, the more it tends to thicken up. You may wish to add a bit more milk to thin it out if the batter seems too thick.
  • Keep an eye on the waffles so that they don't burn. I like to cook them on close to the highest heat setting (5/6 on the heat meter) and will check them once the buzzer goes off. Generally, I'll cook them an extra minute or so to make them a little more crispy after the buzzer goes off, otherwise they may be soft. It's totally a personal preference depending on how brown and crispy you like your waffles.
  • The number of waffles that the batter makes will depend on the size of your waffle maker. I used the Cuisine Art Belgian Waffle Maker and got three large waffles from the batter.
  • The nutritional information is an estimate based on one large waffle. The size of your waffle (and the corresponding nutrition facts) will depend on your waffle maker.
