Vegan Blueberry Waffles

So after a few randomly freezing days earlier this week, I am SO happy to say that it finally feels like spring, and I think this time it’s here to stay!! I’m so affected by the weather in terms of my general mood and happiness, and I hate hate hate being cold, so this extra long winter was a little rough for me here in Ohio.

I always try to see the positive, though, in that the cold days help me to appreciate bright, sunny, HOT days to come! Spring is such a pretty time, but let’s be real, I want it to speed up to summer. Berries are synonymous with summer to me, so these vegan blueberry waffles are just giving me all the feels in anticipation of my favorite season of the year. Now that I’ve rambled about seasons and weather for far too long, let’s talk breakfast!

Vegan Blueberry Waffles

Before I made these, I had been seriously craving waffles for like, several days. Honestly it was a bit weird, as normally I’m team pancake all the way if I’m feeling fancy at breakfast. But sometimes I just want a good chewy, soft waffle, with all those perfect little crevices begging for toppings! I figured it was time to even out my pancake to waffle ratio here on the blog, and give these bomb banana waffles some fruity company!

These vegan blueberry waffles are sweet, simple, and will definitely satisfy your serious waffle cravings – I speak from experience.

The ingredients here are extremely simple, per usual. Grind your oats into flour, add some almond milk, mix, and gently fold in the blueberries. Ta da! You have waffle batter. You can also add some stevia if you’d like the waffles themselves to be a bit sweeter. I usually save that for the toppings, but you do you!

Pour the batter into the waffle iron, and cook until your iron tells you it’s done. Sometimes mine gets cray and tries to say the waffle is done and it isn’t, so just keep an eye on it and use your best judgment! Mine took about 10 minutes for each waffle, and the amount listed in the recipe makes 2 medium size waffles.

Now, vegan blueberry waffles are lovely on their own, but they’re made infinitely prettier AND tastier with toppings! For this stack I layered some vegan blueberry yogurt cause this stack was for Joe and he loves coconut yogurt, and I also blended fresh blueberries for even more blueberry flavor. Some other great options – nut butter, plain coconut yogurt, nuts – your choices are endless!

Vegan Blueberry Waffles

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 large serving

Ingredients

  • 1 c whole grain gluten free rolled oats, ground into flour
  • 1/2-3/4 c plant milk - I usually use almond milk, and depending on what you use you may need slightly less/more milk to bring the batter to the consistency you want! It shouldn't be too thick, but definitely not runny.
  • 1/2 c blueberries
  • Optional toppings: vegan yogurt, or simple blueberry sauce - blend about 1/2 c blueberries with 2 tbsp water, add stevia for more sweetness if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat the waffle iron.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the oat flour and almond milk into a thick batter, and gently fold in blueberries. You can add a little stevia here if you want your waffles a bit sweeter.
  3. Cook the waffles in the iron - this amount of batter makes one full size waffle, and there will be a bit leftover for a smaller one, too. Mine took about 10 minutes in my iron, but this time might vary depending on your waffle iron!
  4. Once the waffles are cooked, top with yogurt, more blueberries, or simple blueberry sauce, and enjoy!
