What is Oatmeal Flour?

Oatmeal flour, also known of oat flour, is a whole-grain flour made from rolled oats. You can purchase it on it’s own or you can make it yourself. Oat flour is rich in nutrients such as manganese, vitamin B1, magnesium, and fibre. You can easily make your own by adding rolling oats to a food processor and blending it up until it’s fine and flour-like. Rolled oats are naturally gluten-free but I suggest you make sure the oats are certified gluten-free as some processing centres may work with gluten.

Add the Batter to the Waffle Maker

  • Cook waffles until crispy and golden brown.

How Long Does it Take to Cook a Waffle in the Waffle Maker?

Due to the variations of waffle makers (models, sizes, etc) on the maker, each waffle makers will vary in how long it takes for the waffles to cook through. It usually takes around five minutes but again, each model of waffle maker will vary.

Tips and Notes

  • Be sure to use cooking spray and not PAM spray for your waffle iron.
  • While I top my waffles with maple syrup and raspberries, you can top them with whatever you like! Try sliced bananas, blueberries, strawberries, sliced almonds, maybe even a little bit of whipped cream if you’re looking for a treat!
  • Unlike pancakes, you shouldn’t stack the waffles on top of each other as you wait for them all to be made. The heat and steam from them will cause the crispy exterior to be soft if you stack them. You can keep them warm in the oven while you wait for them to all finish cooking.
  • When you whip the egg whites and gently fold them into your batter, it helps keep your waffles fluffy. When folding in the eggs, be careful not to deflate them.
  • When you whip your egg whites, make sure your bowl is bone-dry. Moisture in the bowl will prevent your egg whites from foaming up.
  • Be sure to preheat your waffle iron. If you don’t preheat the iron, the exterior won’t crisp up properly.
  • Almond butter can be swapped in if you’re out of peanut butter. Got extra almond butter? Try these Almond Butter Cookies Recipe.

How To Freeze These Gluten-Free Waffles

  • To freeze, allow the peanut butter waffles to cool before stacking them between layers of parchment paper before placing them into a freezer friendly airtight container, and freeze. You can freeze these gluten free waffles for up to 2 months.
  • I suggest stacking the waffles in-between parchment paper so you can pull them out individually without them sticking to each other.
  • When ready to eat, toast them back up in a toaster or toaster oven.
