This waffle is so versatile and healthy, I just love it.
Recognize this recipe? It's my favorite waffle recipe with a little more protein, about 4.5 grams per waffle.
I decided to add some applesauce and peanut butter to the recipe. Of course any nut butter would be great.
GF Peanut Butter -Banana Oat Waffles Makes 4 Waffles
2 1/2 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp natural peanut butter, or other nut butter
2 1/2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Puree all ingredients at once in a blender. Let sit about 5-8 minutes.
Prepare waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray. Heat to medium or medium high setting.
Pour 1 cup of waffle batter at a time onto waffle iron, and let cook about 12 minutes.
These will be soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Eat right away with pure maple syrup, fresh sliced fruit, or more peanut butter and jam…maybe even homemade jam!
Freeze leftovers and pop in toaster for a fresh waffle on a busy morning, or for a healthy snack.
