I’ve been holding out on you guys. Big time. I’ve known that there was this incredible, easy, delicious, pantry recipe for waffles for over two years now. And I’ve made said waffles approximately one billion times (give or take…) and never mentioned them.
I don’t deserve it, but will you forgive me?
Gluten-free, vegan, and cheap as heck, these waffles don’t make any sense. In fact, it took me a few years to actually make them, but when I did, I was ashamed I’d waited so long.
Yes, the ingredients really are oats, water, and a banana. Yes, it sounds kind of disgusting. And, get this, it really really works. It’s magic. The kind of magic you might appreciate on a Saturday morning when you’re hung over and in need of some carbs stat. Or maybe that’s just me.
But, seriously you guys, don’t take my word for it–just do it. You’ll be glad you did.
2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
2 cups water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions. Combine all ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour batter into waffle iron.
Cook, according to directions & enjoy with your favorite syrup or fresh fruit.
