4 cupsold fashioned or quick cooking oatsuse certified gluten free for GF
2 cupsmilk, or non-dairy milk

Place all ingredients in a blender, food processor, or large bowl if using an immersion blender. Blend until oats are finely ground and there are no chunks of bananas, about 1 minute.
Cover and let the batter rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes to allow the oats time to hydrate and soften. Towards the end of resting time, heat the waffle iron.
Spray the hot waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour in enough batter to almost fill the tray. Cook until golden brown and then transfer to a cooling rack or 200°F oven. Serve with maple syrup or homemade blueberry syrup.

Yes, it's a couple extra steps and bowls, but you'll have mind-blowing fluffy gluten free waffles to devour!

Store cooled leftover waffles in the refrigerator for one week, or freeze up to 3 months.Rewarm waffles by laying them on a baking sheet and heating for 10 minutes in an 350ºF oven. Gluten free waffles may be reheated from frozen or quickly defrosted and re-warmed in the microwave as well.
Can this recipe be made dairy free or vegan?
Yes! To make gluten free waffles dairy free simply swap out the milk with any non-dairy version. To make them vegan as well, omit the eggs from the recipe. The waffles will still taste just as good, but they may be more delicate.
