Ingredient notes

Oat flour – you can buy store bought oat flour. We love Bob’s Red Mill because they have certified gluten free oat flour. You can also save money making oat flour by processing rolled oats in a blender or food processor until it reaches a fine flour texture.

Dairy free milk – I prefer to use almond milk or cashew milk, but coconut milk will work too. You can also use regular milk if you tolerate dairy.

Applesauce – make sure you use unsweetened applesauce. The ingredients should just be apples.

Tips from an expert home chef

  • The batter is a thicker batter, but you should still be able to pour it out. If it’s too thick, stir in 1-2 tablespoons more of milk until it’s thin enough to pour.
  • I like to set our waffle press to a level 4 to get my waffles a little browned and the edges crispy. Play with the settings to get nice and crispy edges for the perfect waffles.

Wet ingredients:

  • Add the wet ingredients and whisk to combine. Batter will be thick, but should be able to be poured easily. Add more milk 1-2 tbsp at a time if it needs to be thinned out more. You may need to add more milk in between waffles to keep the batter thin enough to pour.
