Multi-Grain Healthy Blender Waffles are from my popular Oat Banana Waffles I have made for years. These multi-grain waffles take a few extra ingredients but trust me; they are worth it.
I not only enjoy waffles for breakfast but also for snacks and to replace bread for a gluten-free P&J sandwich.
Check out the list of healthy ingredients in these waffles and the benefits for your body:
- Bananas ~ 11 proven benefits of bananas
- Rice Flakes ~ Also known as Poha or flattened rice is gluten-free, easily digested (IBS-friendly), and a good source of vitamin B1.
- Quinoa Flakes ~ A complete protein, low-fat, gluten-free, and a good source of fiber.
- Old-Fashioned Oats ~ A good energy food that keeps you full longer because your body slowly breaks down the whole grains.
- Tiger Nut Flour ~ A small root vegetable that, when ground, can replace white flour in gluten-free, Paleo, and nut-free recipes. Some even consider tiger nuts a superfood due to their high antioxidant content.
- Cinnamon ~ Not only has a wonderful fragrance and flavor but it’s loaded with antioxidants and may even lower blood sugar levels.
To Make Multi-Grain Healthy Blender Waffles, you will need these ingredients:
- Banana ~ green for low FODMAP
- Rice flakes
- Quinoa flakes
- Old fashioned oats ~ gluten-free if needed
- Tiger nut flour
- Walnuts ~ optional; omit for nut-free and less fat.
Blender waffles cook in just 12 minutes on the medium setting of the waffle iron and are a great option to make ahead and freeze for busy mornings or quick grab snacks. Add some nut or seed butter, and you have a sustainable energy source for a workout.
