Quinoa & Oat Banana Waffles With Hemp Seeds are gluten-free, vegan, and super easy to whip up in a blender. So grab a waffle iron, and let’s get cooking.
Hmm…How many healthy ingredients can a person actually get in one waffle recipe and still keep it allergy friendly? How about four? Quinoa, oats, bananas, and hemp seeds.

I was trying to think of a fun new way to eat one of the popular superfoods. By adding hemp seeds to this waffle, you have a healthy, delicious breakfast full of fiber, protein, fruits, and flavor!

Did you know that hemp seeds are a complete protein? And they really aren’t a seed; they are the fruits of hemp plants.

Hemp seeds are becoming very popular as people learn all the health benefits and find more ways to use these little seeds.

*Weight watcher points are 1.25 per 1/4 section of waffle or 5 points for a whole waffle. Hemp seeds have 1 point per tablespoon.

I like to double this waffle recipe and freeze them for a quick breakfast or snack. I even use them instead of bread for peanut butter and jam sandwiches at work or when I need to pack a healthy snack.

To Make Quinoa & Oat Banana Waffles with Hemp Seeds, You Will Need These Ingredients:
  • Gluten-free oats (regular if gluten-free is not needed)
  • Quinoa flakes
  • Banana
  • Water
  • Vanilla
  • Salt
  • Hemp seeds to sprinkle over waffles before cooking

The waffles will have a somewhat creamy texture on the inside and crunchy on the outside. After they reach room temperature, they have a soft, chewy texture.

  • 1 1/2 cups Gluten-free oats regular if gluten-free is not needed
  • 1/2 cup Quinoa flakes
  • 1 Lg Banana ~ Medium or Large
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp Hemp seeds to sprinkle over waffles before cooking.


  • Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray or lightly brush with olive oil.
  • Heat waffle iron to medium-high.
  • In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients except for hemp seeds.
  • Puree ingredients well. You can't over-mix these.
  • Let the mixture sit while the waffle iron heats up. I let the batter sit for about 3-5 minutes, but it's unnecessary.
  • Pour 1 cup of batter onto hot waffle iron and sprinkle hemp seeds over top before closing.
  • Cook for about 11-12 minutes; times may vary depending on the waffle iron. I have a very old standard one that works as great as the day I got it. (25 years ago)
  • Remove the waffles with a fork and add your favorite toppings or let them cool on a wire rack.


If you are going to be freezing the waffles, let them cool completely and place wax paper between them to prevent sticking together after they are frozen.
Waffles will have a somewhat creamy texture to them on the inside and crunchy on the outside.  After they reach room temperature, they get a soft, chewy texture.
