Gluten-free quinoa waffles with oats and oat bran. No added sugar or fat.
This recipe has been a standby for me for over 23 years. I use these waffles for breakfast, snacks, and travel. They don’t have to be refrigerated so they pack well. They are a healthy, low-fat, high-fiber, gluten-free, plant-based waffle that I literally always have in my freezer.
Count 7.6 weight watcher points for each waffle. Half a waffle makes a nice sized snack.
Gluten-Free Quinoa & Oat Waffles Makes 3 large waffles
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
2 cups oats
1/4 cup oat bran
2 1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until mixed well. Let sit about 5 minutes and heat up the waffle iron. If you’re not using a non-stick waffle iron, I suggest using a non-stick spray.
Measure one cup of waffle batter and pour it onto the hot waffle iron. Cook for 11 minutes.
Serve immediately or cool on a wire rack.
**As the mixture sits it will continue to thicken, if desired add a small amount of water and mix well. I do this several times as I am making them, especially since I always make a double or triple batch.
These are delicious with different kinds of nut butter, warm pure maple syrup and cut up fresh fruit.
As I mentioned above, I like to make a double batch of these and freeze them for a quick breakfast on work mornings. I pop one in the toaster, add some peanut butter, a little honey, and some sliced bananas. I can eat this while getting ready for work or take it along with me to eat later. I also pack them in my lunch with peanut butter and jam as a gluten-free sandwich.
