Wonderful Waffles – Video

Wonderful Waffles VIDEOI’ve had several requests lately for the Wonderful Waffle recipe to be put back on the website.  (When I switched from Blogger to WordPress, the recipe didn’t make the trip.)  So here it is, but this time with a video! : )

These waffles are soooo good!

Wonderful Waffles - Video
The nuts and oats in these waffles provide healthy fats and whole grains, making Wonderful Waffles a great way to start the day!
  • 1 1/2 cup non-dairy milk - I use Almond Breeze Original because it's one of the few varieties that don't contain natural flavors (an ingredient we try to avoid)
  • 1/3 cup raw almonds or raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cup regular rolled (old-fashioned) oats - use gluten-free oats for gluten-free waffles
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar or evaporated cane juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until very smooth. This may take several minutes if you don’t have a very powerful blender.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat waffle iron.
  3. Pour batter into hot, oiled waffle iron. Use approximately 1 1/4 cups for an 8-inch waffle iron. (Even if your iron is non-stick, you may still need to oil it.)
  4. Bake on medium-high. When steam stops rising from iron (after about 10 to 12 minutes) and lid lifts easily, check waffle for doneness. Baking time will vary a great deal as some waffle irons bake hotter than others. Large waffles take longer to bake than smaller ones.

    Waffle is done when it is nicely browned.
1. Do not open waffle iron until waffle is close to being done. When waffle is done, the iron lid will lift easily. If lid does not lift right up, then the waffle needs a little bit more baking time.

2. These waffles take a little longer to bake than ordinary waffles that contain baking soda or baking powder. (We like to avoid baking soda and powder when possible as they aren't good for the bones or for digestion.) However, your patience will be rewarded with good health and a delicious breakfast!

3. These waffles freeze nicely. Just heat in the toaster before eating.

These waffles are quite tasty topped with Berry Berry Sauce, Strawberry Applesauce, or even Blueberry Smoothie.

    We had to watch it 3 times! What fun…we’ll try the recipe on Sunday since Brad got a new waffle iron from one of the kids for Christmas. Beckie

    Love the video can’t wait to try the waffles and sauce. My son just became vegan, so I am very excited to make these. Just wondering–I’m assuming you used Old Fashioned Oats, do you think I could also use the Quick Cooking Oats? Since you blend it all up….I was thinking maybe yes…..

      Hi Kim,

      Yes, I use old-fashioned rolled oats in the Wonderful Waffles. I did try them with quick oats and found that I had to adjust the oat amount. Unfortunately, I can’t remember if I had to use more or less, but I’m pretty sure it was more. Sorry : (

      If you want to experiment, I would start off with about 1/4 cup more of the quick oats since not enough oats will make a mess of your waffle iron … and your counter top. Words of experience 😉

        I ended up using old-fashioned–I thought I was out, but I wasn’t. Good to know about the quick oats, though. Thanks!!

    I made these and they were very good. My husband had his with a little peanut butter and sliced bananas. My son just became a vegan–so he got to eat them, too! I can’t wait to try the berry sauce. Thanks for posting (or re-posting) this! Loved your video, saw it on Pinch of Yum. Now I’m subscribed to your blog!

    These waffles look amazing – I can’t wait to make them! I LOVED the video as well, very creative!
    Just a question, do you have the recipe for the skinny cream topping? I did go to the ‘link’ provided, but couldn’t find the recipe there. My waffles just won’t be the same without the skinny cream topping!

    These look scrumptious! Do you have any more info about baking powders and soda on digestion? I’ve been suspecting for a while now that baking powder is not my intestines friend, but have never found any information about it.

    • Jennifer says

      Hi Shana,
      Baking soda and baking powder (even aluminum-free baking powder) alter the pH of the stomach and irritate the digestive lining.
      We try to avoid them when possible, which means we make these delicious waffles … and we opt for cookies made without baking powder (I’ll be sharing some recipes soon), we check cereal ingredients, and we eat ice cream cake (recipe from New Measure Weight Loss Program) for birthdays instead of regular cake. [I know, poor us 😉 ]
      I think it makes a difference in digestive health.

      Hi Kim,
      I don’t think this will work for pancakes since it’s the steam caught in the hot waffle iron that makes these egg-free, baking powder-free waffles rise.

    Just made your waffles and they are great. Unfortunately I have a very old waffle iron wich belong to my grandmother. So I switched it off by 5 minutes and again by 8 minutes.
    Kind regards from Holland.

      Hi Hanita,
      Happy to have you visit from so far away : )
      I’m glad you liked the waffles and that you were able to make them work with your grandmother’s iron.

    These look incredible for after a hard workout! I was just wondering, could I sub either almond flour or cashew butter for the almonds or cashews? (I guess I’m wondering how ground up they get in the blender!) I usually don’t just buy raw nuts because they’re too calorie dense for me to keep around! If so, what would be the appropriate amounts to sub, or should I just experiment? Thanks!

    • Jennifer says

      Hi Ellie,

      You should be able to substitute almond flour for the almonds. 1/3 cup of whole almonds equals almost 1/2 cup of almond flour.

      Hope you enjoy :)

    Nice Video! I can’t find the Berry Berry Sauce on your site any longer, I wanted to share the link with a friend but can’t find it. Let me know when you put it up, thanks!!

  9. Zoraida says

    Thanks! hat Berry Berry sauce was delicious, I even saved some as a topping for homemade pineapple ice cream and was the perfect touch. I added some more grape juice to get it more runny for the ice cream.

    Thanks again! Let me know when you post those attrative cookies recipe that are with the Brazil milk!
