For the Waffles:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, gluten free certified if needed
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, extra fine (also known as almond meal)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour, gluten free certified if needed
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I recommend organic cane sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup oil (I love avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk (almond, soy, cow, etc)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dark, milk, white or combination)

For the Chocolate Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream (the 35% stuff)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Sliced bananas (or strawberries would be good too), serving


  1. Preheat waffle maker and adjust settings according to instruction manual. Preheat oven to 225F and line a baking sheet with a non-stick, oven safe cooling rack.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oats, almond flour, oat flour, tapioca flour, ground flax, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, oil and vanilla. Slowly whisk in the milk.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing until well incorporated and lumps are present.
  5. Generously spray waffle maker grills with cooking spray or oil (I love my Misto for this!). Add batter and cook waffles according to your waffle maker’s instruction manual. (I have a smaller waffle maker so I add 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of batter and cook for 4 minutes.) Keep cooked waffle in the oven on the prepared baking sheet until ready to serve.
  6. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  7. While the waffles are cooking, prepare the chocolate whipped cream. Add heavy cream, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla to a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream mixture until stiff peaks form, scraping the sides of the bowl, if needed. Set aside.
  8. Serve waffles immediately with sliced fruit and chocolate whipped cream.
  9. Leftover waffles can be stored in a freezer bag in the freezer. To reheat, warm in the toasted until just crisp on the outsides.
  10. This recipes yields 10 square waffles. Although it will depend on the size and shape of your waffle maker.
