Cashew and Oat Gluten-Free Waffles With Fresh Berries

Cashew and Oat Gluten-Free Waffles With Fresh Berries

How do you make vegan and gluten-free waffles are made without any flour?

It’s easy peasy: Throw rolled oats (gluten-free) and cashews into a food processor to form a fine whole-grain meal that contains fiber and omega-3s.

Want waffles with a crisp exterior and fluffy interior?

Let the batter rest for a few minutes while your waffle iron gets hot. This gives the oats time to absorb some of the moisture, which helps prevent sad, soggy waffles.

Don’t have a waffle iron? This batter can also be used to make pancakes.

How to Freeze Homemade Gluten-Free Waffles

If you put all of the waffles directly into a bag and put them in the freezer, they’ll stick together.

To prevent sticking, arrange waffles in a single layer on a wire cooling rack or cookie sheet, place them in the freezer for at least an hour, and then put them into a freezer-safe plastic bag.

When you’re ready to eat, treat them just like frozen waffles you can buy at the store: Pop one into the toaster until warmed through.

  • 2 cups dry rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin organic coconut oil, melted
  • cups water
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 cups fresh mixed berries
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup (or honey)


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Place oats, cashews, and salt in food processor or blender; pulse until coarsely ground.
  3. Add oil, water, and extract; pulse until well blended. Batter will be thick, but if it is as thick as paste add 2 to 3 additional Tbsp. of water.
  4. Lightly coat waffle iron with spray. Pour ½ cup of batter into waffle iron; cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until waffle iron indicates waffle is cooked, or until waffle is cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.
  5. While waffles are cooking, combine berries and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Slightly mash berries to release some juice.
  6. Serve waffles topped evenly with berry mixture.
