These Oatmeal Gluten Free Waffles are incredibly light and get nice and crisp around the edges. The leftover waffles freeze and toast wonderfully. I love to top these with a fruit “syrup,” which is mostly just fruit sweetened with a small amount of honey.
How to Make Gluten Free Waffles
I love breakfast. Easily my favorite meal of the day. When I find new blogs to explore, I always scan the breakfast recipes first in search of fun morning meal ideas.
Waffles are a great breakfast for a weekend morning! In fact, we often have this batter in the fridge to make a quick waffle even during the week.
For these fluffy, Gluten Free Waffles, you’ll need:
- Oat Flour
- Yogurt (we use plain yogurt)
- Almond Milk
- Coconut oil (or your favorite oil for baking)
- Cinnamon (optional, but adds a great flavor!)
Make these delicious oatmeal waffles even more special by adding a homemade blueberry syrup.
I don’t often have maple syrup in the house. Fruit is a much better pancake and waffle topper! This blueberry syrup is made by simmering the blueberries with a little honey — trust me, it’s sweet enough!
Of course, if you’d like to drizzle these with maple syrup, by all means, do!
Tips for Cinnamon Oatmeal Gluten Free Waffles
- I love my Hamilton Beach waffle iron. Waffles never stick, and I love how crisp the waffles come out. The one I’ve had at my house doesn’t get them nearly as crispy.
- Make it Gluten Free: If you need this recipe to be completely gluten free, be sure to use Certified Gluten Free Oat Flour.
- Make it Ahead: These waffles freeze great! Make a double (or triple!) batch, and freeze them to reheat in a toaster any time.
- For the Family: My son loves these– and I love that he’s eating eggs, yogurt and oatmeal for breakfast, since those things on their own aren’t nearly as appealing to his young palate.

These waffles are gorgeous! I love that they’re gluten free too! Pinning and hoping to try them soon.
Thanks for pinning, Allison!
These look so good! I’m a huge breakfast fan, too, and my 13 yr old is GF, so these are perfect. 🙂
They are delicious– hope your family enjoys them as much as we do 🙂
This is pretty much how I make my waffles too and I love the texture that oats gives them. Sunday is waffle day in our house.
I love that you have a waffle day!
I’m like you I love breakfast but eat a lot of the same things. I can’t wait to try these they look fantastic!

I totally understand you. Breakfast is my favorite meal too and yet, same as you, on my blog there’s only few breakfast recipes. We have to change that, ok!? 😉 I’m ashamed to admit I don’t own waffle iron. Horrible.. YES I know!!! I have to get me one (thanks for recommendation). And first I’m gonna try this amazing looking waffles. I’m sharing this and pinning!
I actually broke my waffle iron a year ago and haven’t replaced it– these were made while staying with my mom over the holidays and while we were staying with her. I am definitely replacing mine as soon as we’re home (now we are in Australia visiting my husband’s family). These were so nice to have in the freezer for my son for breakfast and snacks! And we all enjoyed them. And yes, I have breakfast posts lined up this month– my breakfast archives will look much better this spring 🙂

Yes, it did!

These look really scrumptious. Just a note, how much oat flour would I need as I couldn’t see it on the ingredients? Bet these will keep you full too with the protein from the eggs
It was listed on the ingredients- i just double checked! This calls for 1 cup of oat flour (makes 6 waffles). Yes, they are really filling- protein from eggs and yogurt!

Ooh love the ingredients in these waffles! I’m with you I’m all about the breakfast!
Yes, I love that using just healthy ingredients you can make traditional less-than-healthy dishes — these are just as delicious as the originals!

These waffles look delicious and so healthy too!!
What a beautiful breakfast plate. Love that it isn’t loaded with sugar.
Yes!! I don’t understand why fruit syrups normally are loaded with sugar– so unnecessary!
