Is there anything more beautiful than a huge plate of waffles? Nothing is coming to mind so we’re just gonna go with no.

I have this problem where I always buy way too many bananas at once and they all ripen at the same time. I think a lot of people have the same problem which is probably how banana bread got invented. Before making these I had I thought about making banana bread but then realized I hadn’t used my mini waffles maker in a long time.

To be honest, it’s not the most convenient thing if you’re making waffles for more than one person because it takes foreeeeeeeever to make them all individually. But come on, they’re so cute though so it’s kinda worth it. If you actually want to get them done for a group then definitely use a normal sized waffle maker.

This recipe includes a few ingredients that you use tiny amounts of, but essentially it’s only 2 main ingredients. Basically it’s bananas and oats with some extras. I love oats but I think we can all agree they can get a little boring from time to time. This is kind of a fun way to make them more interesting.

These are honestly like the easiest thing to whip up and they are so good with any topping. In the photos I topped them with caramelized bananas and some vanilla coconut yogurt, but also love putting some nut butter on top and piling on some any fresh fruit. Let me know what you think if you try them!

Cinnamon Banana Bread Oat Waffles (Vegan+GF)

This recipe is basically just a way more fun version of eating your morning oatmeal.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 4 servings



2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 small-medium banana, very ripe
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 /8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
2 teaspoons arrowroot starch you can sub tapioca or corn starch
1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (or water)

Topping Ideas:

caramelized bananas
vanilla yogurt
maple syrup
nut butter!


Combine oats, starch, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a blender or food processor and pulse until powdered. Add the banana, vanilla and milk and pulse until it's a smooth batter.

Heat a waffle iron and spray lightly with cooking spray if the non-stick surface isn't very good. Cook waffles to your desired level of crispiness. I love crispy waffles but you can definitely make them soft. Also, be sure not to open the iron too soon or you'll rip the waffle.

Recipe Notes

Depending on the size of waffle iron this recipe will make about 8 large waffles or 16 miniature ones like the ones in the photos.
