Blender Waffles

Blender Waffles

1/4 cup dates, pitted
1/4 cup cashews
2 Tbsp. flax seeds
2 cups oats, gluten free if necessary
1 cup corn meal
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free Mighty Tasty hot cereal
(you can substitute additional brown rice flour  for the Mighty Tasty cereal if desired)
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp. salt
5 cups water

Preheat waffle iron.  Be sure it is conditioned or brush with a teaspoon of olive oil so waffles wont' stick.

Add half the water to blender.  Then add dates, cashews, and flax seeds.  Blend on high until well mixed and nuts and seeds are ground.  Then, add oats, corn meal, Mighty Tasty cereal,  brown rice flour, and salt.  Add remainder of water and blend until very smooth.  If your blender is not large enough, mix in batches, then pour into a mixing bowl and stir batches together.

Fill waffle iron and close lid.  Bake about 6 minutes or until light goes off.  Be sure the waffle iron is preheated before every application so that waffles don't stick.

This makes a delicious, nutty waffle.  This is my variation of a waffle recipe that my friend, Barbara, from Wildflower Morning Recipes shared.  So, thank you Barbara for a great idea!  

If you have any left-over waffles, they can be placed in a zip-lock bag and stored in the freezer until ready to use.  Place in toaster when ready to eat.


  1. Oh it is surely time to get ahold of a working waffle iron. That sounds so very nutritious and delicious.

  2. Mmmm...these sound like a delightful and hearty variation on the normal waffle. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This sounds delicious, now if I only had a blender. Mine was over 30 years old and finally stopped running.

  4. Looks lovely! I will be back to my blender soon.
