Servings 11 Waffles


  • 2 cups Oatmeal
  • 2 Bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Ground Cinnamon A pinch
  • 1-2 tsp Oil For lightly brushing the waffle maker


  • (Optional) If you don't have oats flour or oatmeal available, then you can make your own by pulsing the the old fashioned Quaker Oats in a food processor. Just a few pulses, and you have you own Oatmeal available at home.
  • Roughly break the bananas into small pieces and add into a blender with 1/2 cup of milk. Blend the ingredients into a smooth paste.
  • Then add the dry ingredients (oatmeal, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon) into a bowl and mix.
  • Add the rest of ingredients (banana-milk mixture, 1/4 cup of milk, eggs and vanilla extract) to the dry ingredients mixture. Whisk everything together till you get a smooth batter.
  • Heat a waffle iron (I use Dash Mini Waffle Maker which uses around 2-3 tablespoon of batter for each waffle). Lightly brush oil on both inner sides of the waffle iron, and pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter on one side of the waffle maker.
  • Close the lid, and as per the waffle maker instructions, open the waffle iron once the waffle is cooked (Dash iron takes around 3-4 minutes for each waffle, this can vary by the waffle iron model and brand, so remember to check the instructions booklet for the waffle maker you are using).
  • Repeat the above 2 steps till all the waffles are made. This batter quantity yields around 11-12 waffles of mini waffle iron size.
  • Serve hot, with toppings of your choice, or even freeze for later!


  • I am not blending the complete 3/4th cup of milk in the first step, since I have a small personal blender jar (16 ounce jar by Ninja personal blender). If you have a large blender jar, then you can add all the wet ingredients together in the first step itself.
  • The waffles can be stored in a freezer for a few weeks in a Ziploc Bag. They can be stacked over each other, and added to a Ziploc bag by removing the excess air out and then sealing it.
  • After removing the waffle(s) from the freezer, you can just microwave them for 30 seconds on one side, and 10-15 seconds on the other side (if you are heating them one by one), else more time if you are heating multiple waffles together in a microwave. Other option is to heat up the waffle iron, and just pop the waffle again in it and heat for few seconds.
  • If you stack the waffles for freezing, then they start to stick with each other, which causes hassles when you want to use the frozen ones. So, always separate the waffles with either a parchment paper (which you may need to cut as per the waffles size). Or a better idea is to use Coffee Filters in between 2 waffles.
