Confession time:  I am the world's worst waffle maker.  But let me explain a little bit before you run as you know that a waffle recipe is to follow.  When I say worst, I mean in the looks department.  The taste department is just dandy, but I often feel like I'm eating a pile of twigs instead of waffles even though my taste buds tell me otherwise.  I always blamed it on the waffle iron, but seeing as my mom could always make perfect waffles with it, I think that my assertion was only wishful thinking.  Luckily, my mom recognized my dilemma and tried her best to help when she bought me this for Christmas:
Did it help?  No twigs in sight!  So, I would answer that question with a "yes."
Hopefully you're not scared of this recipe anymore. ;)

Almond Oat Waffles
These waffles get their almond flavor from almond extract, but if you want to add chopped or slivered almonds, I think that would be a nice addition (though I haven't actually tried it)!  This recipe is based on Mollie Katzen's Oatmeal Waffles from Sunlight Cafe.
Serves 1

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour (or other flour of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons oat bran
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg white


  1. Preheat a waffle iron.  (If it has an adjustable temperature, set it to 400.)
  2. Mix together the oats, rice flour, oat bran, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, extracts, Greek yogurt, and egg white.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.  Mix well, but don't over mix.
  5. Grease the waffle iron with coconut oil or butter.
  6. Pour the the batter into the iron and cook for about 3 minutes.
  7. Most important step:  Top with desired toppings (maple syrup, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, fresh berries, etc.) and devour!
I ended up slathering mine in peanut butter.  Perfect looking, perfect tasting.  I think my title adequately describes these waffles.  Yum! :D

Do you like waffles?  What's your favorite flavor?

These were wonderful, though I do love chocolate waffles.  I'll have to experiment with a recipe!

Has your dad tried your new waffle plates on waffles like he enjoyed so much in Iceland yet?

I was in hopes that your mom didn't forget that we had gotten them when Christmas time came but kept forgetting to ask her.

Oh, they do look good!

Oh I'd love that!! I almost never make waffles because the waffle iron is so difficult to clean - that looks like it would be much easier to work with. I like banana chocolate chip waffles best!

Oh awesome! I'm terrible at making waffles too. They always split in half. That pan looks like it would be so much easier to clean too. Favorite waffle? Anything with chocolate.


Oh my gosh, I LOVE waffles! Do you know of anything I can use in place of the greek yogurt and egg white?! :D
