To make these nutritious, fluffy waffles, you'll need a ripe banana, rolled oats, egg, nut or seed butter and non-dairy milk and a few other ingredients. For sweetness, I added one pitted medjool date, but you could add some pure maple syrup instead if you don't have any dates.
Healthy, Fluffy Waffles Made in a Blender!
I was recently at Trader Joe's and they have a reusable tote bag dedicated to waffles. They define waffles as "pancakes with pockets" which is too cute! Are you team pancakes or team waffles?! I am definitely team waffles, although chocolate chip pancakes will always be a classic.

This recipe is perfect for weekend brunch or make your gluten-free waffles the night before so you can have a homemade grab and go breakfast the next day! There's nothing stopping you from trying this delicious breakfast. Top your oatmeal banana waffles with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
Let's Make Oatmeal Banana Blender Waffles:
This healthy waffle recipe couldn't be any easier. We're taking all of the hard work out of the equation by blending all of the ingredients in a blender. I just know you have a ripe banana sitting on your counter and instead of letting it go to waste, make these hearty and delicious oatmeal banana waffles!
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Use a small rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of your blender and blend once more to make sure everything is well combined. This waffle batter will be thick! If you find the consistency to be too thick, use a little milk to thin it out a bit.
Scoop about ¼-1/3 cup of batter onto a hot, greased waffle iron. The size of your waffles will depend on the size of your waffle maker. I made small, personal-sized waffles using this mini waffle maker.
Continue to make waffles until you run out of batter. This recipe makes 5-6 mini waffles. Serve these healthy oatmeal banana blender waffles with extra sliced banana, nut butter and pure maple syrup or honey! Store any leftovers in the fridge to save for breakfast for the next few days.
Everything You'll Need
- Ripe Banana: A spotted, ripe banana adds natural sweetness and loads of banana flavor to these yummy waffles.
- Rolled Oats: Blended rolled oats act as oat flour in this healthy blender waffles recipe.
- Egg: These waffles call for an egg to add protein and bind the ingredients together. I have not tested swapping a flax egg yet, but let me know if you try it!
- Medjool Date: The rich, caramel flavor of medjool dates adds more sweetness and flavor to this recipe. If you don't have dates, you can try swapping a tablespoon of pure maple syrup.
- Nut or Seed Butter: Grab your favorite nut or seed butter for this recipe. I used peanut butter to pair with the banana flavor.
- Milk of Choice: Use regular milk or non-dairy milk to thin out the waffle batter.
- Baking Soda: This is the rising agent in this waffle recipe and makes them fluffy and light.
- Cinnamon: I can't resist adding cinnamon to most of my recipes. If you're not a fan of cinnamon, just omit it.
- Salt: Just a pinch of salt balances out the natural sweetness in this recipe.
- Ground Flaxseed: For added health benefits, add some ground flaxseed. This ingredient is optional so just skip it if you don't have it.
Need to make a substitution?
Can I use different oats?
I only recommend using old fashioned rolled oats in this recipe. I always have rolled oats in my pantry to use for oatmeal or fruit crisps like this healthy blueberry crisp for two.
Make sure you use gluten-free rolled oats to ensure this recipe is gluten-free.
Try swapping the egg with a flax egg. I have not tested this so let me know how it works out! Be sure to use dairy-free milk.
