These healthy baked waffles are so light and fluffy you would never know they are made with oats! They are sweetened with a little bit of maple syrup and use banana in place of egg meaning they are a great plant based breakfast if you want something healthy that feels indulgent.
One of the first breakfast recipes I ever uploaded to my website was this Blueberry Baked Waffle recipe and, ever since, I have always wanted to create a more nutrient dense version. After creating my Banana Bread Baked Oats recipe, (which you can find here), I was left wondering if the batter would work in a waffle format. I gave it a try and, after tweaking the bake time, these healthy baked waffles were born!
They make the perfect leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch when you have a little bit more time in the mornings, however, they are so good they also make a great dessert when you fancy something sweet in the evenings.
I like to use dark chocolate chunks in this, however, if you would prefer a dairy free milk or white chocolate instead then that is your call. I use soya milk in this recipe, however, any plant milk or cow’s milk if you’re not dairy free would work. Similarly, if you do not need to use dairy free chocolate then you can simply use a dairy containing version.
To make these healthy baked waffles I just use a cheap silicone waffle mould that serves one. As the mould is made from silicone it does not need greasing meaning that this breakfast is relatively fuss free. Once baked, allow to cool for a few minutes before tipping the mould upside and tapping it to release the waffles. Add your toppings of choice, for me this is usually chopped banana, additional maple syrup and some extra chunks of chocolate, and enjoy!
I have noted the bake time is 22 minutes, however, depending on how hot your oven gets you may need to allow up to 25.
