Heart-Felt and Gluten-Free

Slightly adapted from Sannette’s original recipe, these waffles can be made with whole grain oat flour or quinoa flour and they are as good as a waffle gets.

Healthy whole food waffles

Thank goodness for Wholetarian waffles. It’s for that special occasion where waffles work just perfectly. Whether it’s Christmas morning, an Anniversary, a Valentine dessert (see photo below) or any other time that beckons something a little traditional or special.
This recipe comes from my sister-in-law’s awesome mother, though I made some slight adaptations. Sannette made these for her family of 11 (yes that’s eleven) and it took her a number of batches to feed them all. This is what I call a labor of love. You may pass on the love to those whom you love with these delicious waffles.
Also see the Karly’s Pancake/Waffle Syrup and Coconut Whipped Cream recipes to put on top of the waffles.

Sannette's Delicious Waffles or Pancakes
Yield: 4, 8" square waffles or 5, 7" round waffles
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk of choice (raw milk, almond, coconut etc)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil in a liquid state
  • 2 cups oat flour or quinoa flour or a mixture of both (original recipe used whole wheat flour)
  • (see Notes on flour)
  • ½ tsp Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda (aluminum free)
  • 1 tsp baking powder (aluminum free)
  1. I have to say that I am all for short cuts so I just dump all the ingredients into a blender, blend it together and it's ready to go into the waffle maker. I've tried both preparation methods and everyone in my family absolutely loves my blender method just as well. But you decide. The following is Sanette's light and fancy method.
  2. Separate egg, beat whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. Mix yolk, milk and oil in separate bowl.
  4. Sift dry ingredients into mixture.
  5. Fold in egg whites.
  6. Pour into a preheated waffle iron and use according to manufactures directions.
  7. Add fresh fruit on top of waffles such as bananas or blueberries. Use Karly's Pancake/Waffle Syrup and Coconut Whipped Cream recipes.
  8. Top with chopped pecans or nuts of choice.
  9. Works well as a Special Dessert


If you’re Gluten-Free then use G-Free oats or quinoa flour and top them with Karly’s Pancake/Waffle syrup which makes them extra good. (Those that require strict abstinence from Gluten must take personal responsibility to scrutinize all ingredients)
You can purchase Gluten-Free Oat flour if needed or Standard Oat flour, both from Amazon. I always have Old Fashioned Rolled Oatmeal on hand, so I just put some in my high powered blender and quickly turn it into oat flour as needed.
Oat flour in this recipe taste wonderful and nobody seems to know its not anything different than the whole wheat version we use to eat. (Will soon be posting an article about Genetically Engineered wheat- Wheat isn’t what it used to be)
I tried making this recipe with quinoa flour and noticed a strong quinoa aroma when making them. I was seriously worried that my kids would notice the strange smell and immediately reject them as they are very capable of doing, but all I heard was “Thanks for the delicious Waffles Mom”. Whew, got a way with that one. If I use quinoa flour again, I will mix it with oat flour. Although quinoa is a complete protein, oats are also fabulous for you.

Whole Grain Waffles Recipe

Waffles also make a wonderful dessert with a scoop of ice cream. This dessert is whole grain, dairy free and lusciously satisfying.

I used my Strawberry Ice Cream recipe to turn this into a wonderful Valentines Day dessert. My Vanilla Ice Cream could have worked just as well. I used my recipe for Karly’s Pancake/Waffle Syrup for this one. Remember, guys tend to equate waffles with comfort and pleasure, so this is likely to be well received.
