These healthy Banana Oatmeal Waffles are vegan, oil-free, gluten-free, and soy-free. Sweetened with a ripe banana and dates, the only topping needed on these tasty oat waffles are blueberries.  #bananaoatwaffles #wfpb #glutenfree #soyfree #nooil #oilfree #healthyveganrecipes #veganwaffles


Units Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free if gluten sensitive)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 6 dates, pitted and soaked in hot water for 5 to 7 minutes
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened, plain plant-based milk
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries, warmed with juices for topping


  1. Soak the pitted dates in boiling hot water for 5 to 7 minutes to soften.
  2. Put blueberries into a small pot over medium-low heat and allow them to warm, releasing some juices gently. Turn off the heat and let sit.
  3. Preheat the waffle iron.
  4. Combine all ingredients except for the blueberries (or fruit topping) into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  5. Evenly spread batter into the preheated waffle iron, being careful not to overfill it. Close the iron and allow it to cook until the waffle iron beeps to let you know it's done.
  6. Remove from the waffle iron and top with warmed blueberries and their juices.
  7. There is no need to add maple syrup because the waffle is sweetened with bananas and dates.

This recipe makes two big waffles or four small waffles. Store leftover waffles separate from the blueberry topping in a covered container in the refrigerator for 3 days. This keeps the waffle from getting soggy. Also, it makes it easy to break off a section and pop it in the toaster for reheating. You can also freeze these waffles for up to 4 months.
