The Non-Dairy Queen: Chickpea Oatmeal Waffles (GF, V)

Quick bread alternatives were one of the hardest things for us to come up with when my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease. We love toasted bread for sandwiches, so I decided to create a savory waffle for our quick bread needs. These waffles are quick and easy, as well as, full of fiber and whole grain. We love having them with over easy eggs on top or they work perfectly with your favorite sandwich fillings. They also freeze perfectly!

Mix everything together and cook in a waffle iron.  If you want it toasted, leave it in for a little longer.

I have a sensitivity to flax. Can I substitute sesame or is the flax required as a thickening or bonding agent? These look great and I think my son would love them.


Cassidy Stockton says:


You should be able to use an egg in place of the flax/water combo. Otherwise- an egg substitute of some sort would work as well. That’s what the flax is being used for in this case.


Egg definitely works, I’ve used it! Any egg substitute will work too.

Jen Butts says:

I was a little sceptical making these waffles since I have never used chick pea flour. I made the recipe exactly as stated and to my amazement they turned out pretty darn good. However I did not buy the flour, I put the dried chick peas in my Magic Bullet and blended them up, which only took about 1 minute to make.

Pharishta says:

This recipe worked very well! I doubled the recipe so that it makes four waffles at the same time. I ground the flax seeds fresh and mixed with hot water separately before mixing with the flour and oats. Heating the waffle maker is the key to successful waffle making. The cooking time is about 20 minutes depending on the machine. If you want the crunchy/crisp corners, you may extend the cooking time. Waffle making takes patience, but it’s worth it. My favorite toppings are coconut butter and raw honey which make the waffle looks and tastes like sugar-glazed pastry. Yum! Enjoy!

Yay! We’re so happy you liked it! We need to try the glaze on it! That sounds delicious!
