My banana oatmeal pancakes recipe is one of the most popular on my blog. Each weekend hundreds of people make them and have even made them a family tradition.
I love a good pancake, but I also love waffles so I wanted to modify that recipe into waffles in case there's any other waffle lovers out there. Those holes just catch all that butter and syrup! It's why we also turned it into an overnight waffle casserole!
Ingredients for gluten free waffles:
- Gluten free rolled oats
- Dairy free milk
- Honey/maple syrup
- Coconut oil
- Baking powder
- Vanilla, cinnamon and salt
Are waffles gluten free?
Traditionally waffles aren't gluten free, but this recipe is! We're using gluten free rolled oats and blending them into an oat flour as the base. Not only is this recipe gluten free, but it's also dairy free!

How to make gluten free waffles from scratch:
Start by placing your gluten free oats in the blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds to create an oat flour. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high until combined.
Heat the waffle iron and when it says 'ready,' fill the waffle iron to the edges with batter. Close the lid and cook until the waffle iron light turns green or says ready, usually 5-7 mintutes.
Repeat the process until all of the batter is gone.
How to freeze these waffles for later:
- Cook all of the waffles completely then allow to cool.
- Store individually in baggies or a air tight storage container.
- When you're ready to eat, remove from the freezer and place directly in the toaster.
What to serve with gluten free waffles:
- Pure maple syrup
- Butter or ghee
- Almond butter
