Toasty and delicious Oatmeal Flax Waffles will make your weekend. Even better this Oatmeal Flax Waffle recipe is gluten-free and, with a quick adaptation, could be vegan.


  • 1 cup oat flour (see note above)
  • ½ cup ground flax
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup buttermilk (vegan alternative: soy or almond milk)
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted (vegan alternative: coconut oil)
  • 2 large eggs (vegan alternative: 1/4 cup coconut yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1.  Combine dry ingredients, oat flour, baking powder, and salt, in a large bowl and whisk to remove any lumps. In a second bowl, whisk wet ingredients: buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, honey, and vanilla.
  2.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold together until just mixed, but lumpy.  Rest better for about 10 minutes while the oat flour soaks up some of that moisture.  Preheat waffle iron.
  3.  Batter will rise, stir batter quickly, just once or twice to knock it down to a more liquid state.  Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray.  Ladle batter onto hot waffle iron, to fill the center cavity, but not overflow, then close the lid.  (Gypsy Note: Every waffle iron is different, I know my waffles are done when they stop steaming.  My waffle maker has a little green light indicator that tells me when it thinks they’re done.  It’s not always right.  I look for even golden colour and crisp, firm waffle divots.)
  4.  When done, transfer to a cooling rack or baking sheet.  Repeat the process until you’ve used up all your batter.



Gypsy Tip:  If you stack waffles on top of each other to hold for later, they get soggy and even more limp and hard to handle.  In my days at The Dragonfly Inn, I would transfer waffles on a parchment-lined baking sheet and hold them in a 220°F (105°C) oven until I was ready to plate. You can also cool & freeze leftovers.  Pop them into a toaster, on medium-low, for fresh, tasty gluten-free waffles any ol’ time!
