Break that all night fast with these quick and incredibly easy oat banana waffles.

GF waffles that are quick and easy.

This simple banana and oat waffle recipe has been a staple in my freezer for over 20 years.

A healthy waffle is hard to find, especially a gluten-free, low-fat waffle. To guarantee you are making gluten-free waffles use certified gluten-free oats like Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Old Fashion Rolled Oats.

I like these fresh off the waffle iron, reheated in the toaster, or packed in a lunch with nut butter and jam like a sandwich.

They are basically irresistible with Pure Maple Syrup of course too.  Try some warm with nut butter and chocolate chips, allergy-friendly if needed.  Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips. Sliced bananas on top of the syrup or nut butter is a great combination too.


Special Diets:
*Paleo ~ some may need to eat bananas in moderation depending on blood sugar levels and weight goals.
*Weight watchers ~ yes, count each whole waffle has 6 points.
*Yeast Free ~as long as you are past the strict phase and in moderation.
*Dairy-Free & Egg-Free ~ absolutely and also Vegan.
*Gluten-Free- with certified gluten-free oats

Why not make extra and freeze them, that’s what I do! They are like “fast food” just pop them in the toaster to reheat. To make sure the insides heat up, I set the toaster on a lower setting and pop them twice.

Add some fresh or frozen berries; blueberries are usually my first choice.

  • 2 cups Old Fashion Oats gluten-free if necessary
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 banana non-ripe for SIBO
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon optional


  • Put all ingredients in a blender at once and mix well. I set my waffle iron to #3, but brands vary.
  • Add a little unsweetened coconut or chopped nuts ~ optional but tasty.
  • Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour 1 cup at a time onto a hot, lightly oiled waffle iron. I use a non-stick spray.
  • Let cook without looking for about 12 minutes, times may vary. Remove from waffle iron with a fork.
  • Let waffle cool on a wire rack or eat right away. Crisp on the outside and soft and a little moist on the inside.


Toss in some mini chocolate chips like Enjoy Life Brand, gluten, and dairy-free.
*Note -The batter tends to thicken up a bit, so feel free to add 1-2 Tbsps of water or so but it isn’t necessary.
I make several batches at once and freeze them. Place wax paper in between each waffle inside a freezer bag.
