Easy healthy banana oat waffles

You guys, these healthy easy banana oat waffles have upped my breakfast game big time. Because honestly, who has time during rushed mornings to whip up a super healthy AND delicious breakfast? Well, me. And now you too. Because I’m not kidding you, these banana oatmeal waffles take all of 10 minutes to make, from start to finish. While the waffle maker heats up, you blend together all the ingredients. Pour the batter into the waffle iron, wait 2-3 minutes, et voila. Healthy breakfast waffles are a go!

Easy healthy banana oat waffles

I based this recipe on the most popular recipe on Simply Delicious for a few years now, my easy and healthy banana oat pancakes. The only difference here is that I doubled the amount of rolled oats used as this gives the waffle a bit more substance and they hold up better in the waffle maker. Other than that, you still only need 5 ingredients to make these (without the salt which is totally optional). I mean, are we winning or what?

How to make healthy waffles

Combine rolled oats, ripe bananas, eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder and salt in a blender and blend until smooth and thick. Generously spray a waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray then spoon some of the batter onto the waffle iron. Allow to cool until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and serve.

Healthy waffle toppings: 

These banana oat waffles are so versatile and can be topped with pretty much anything your heart desires. These are some of my favourite combos:

  1. Fresh raspberries/banana and a drizzle of honey. (Super easy and fuss free!)
  2. A smear of nut butter, sliced apple and maple syrup/honey. (I mean)
  3. Lemon curd yoghurt (or whichever yoghurt you love), fresh berries and yep, you guessed it, more honey.

I’m also loving the idea of adding some Middle-Eastern dukkah to a banana topped waffle to add a bit of spice. Yum! Whichever way you go, you honestly can’t go wrong. I guarantee these will be a hit at you breakfast table!

    I have made these twice and each time doubled or quadrupled the batch. My only complaint is that I can’t keep these made enough. I have a 4, 2, and 11 month old. They all eat them and love them. This is a clean, nutrient dense waffle and it feels like a treat. Make a giant batch because this recipe isn’t big enough ? (because we all love them and cannot eat just one). They are delicate taking them in and out of our waffle maker but just go slow and eat the ones that fall apart, you don’t have to share those. ? Lay the leftovers on a sheet pan to cool and then stack and freeze. Toast them in the toaster. We did two or three times in the toaster so I could try and make them crispy. It works! For me homemade waffles are never as crispy as the frozen ones but the quality is so much better with homemade and this recipe is so clean, I don’t feel guilty my whole family eating a ton of them. Great recipe!

    I was very impressed with this recipe. My bananas were frozen and my oats were past the recommended expiration date on the bottom of the canister, but it still worked. I also added cinnamon, nutmeg and a teaspoon of sugar.

    This is a very good, healthier waffle recipe. I am surprised and impressed!

    I halved the quantities it as I was alone, and served it with:
    1/2 apple
    some chopped pecans
    handful of frozen blueberries, heated in a mug in the microwave to get the liquid out (very nice, as the liquid soaks into the waffles)
    sprinkling of cinnamon

    I recommend the re-warmed frozen blueberries, because the liquid soaks into the waffles and it was moist and sweet enough that I didn’t need any maple syrup! So extra healthy!

    Hi there, wondering if you could prep the batter ahead of time and leave overnight in the fridge?

    • Alida Ryder

      Totally! You might just need to thin it out a little with milk before cooking.

    It was so good! Is it 329 calories for one or 2 waffles?

    • Alida Ryder

      So glad you liked it! It’s 329 calories per serving, this recipes serves 2 people. Depending on how big your waffles are, that could be one or two waffles.

    These were absolutely delicious! I made whole wheat waffles at the same time, and every single person preferred these over to the other recipe!! So Easy! Except depending on your waffle iron, far more than a few tablespoons of batter could be needed. Definitely follow the waffle iron’s instructions on how much batter is needed.

    I couldn’t believe how perfect these turned out. We had them with all the toppings you suggested above as a Sunday brunch and we couldn’t get enough. Great recipe!

    Dying for these. My kids gobble them up as fast as I can make them. They often have them with Nutella as a treat but I love them Simply with a little drizzle of maple and they are just perfect.

      Oh yay! I’m so happy to hear that Candice. Nutella is a great idea for some indulgence.

    I make these waffles every weekend and always make extra so that I have a few for during the week. They are so tasty and I love how easy they are. Fantastic recipe.

    I loved how easy and healthy these are. My kids gobbled them up!
    For my adult palate, I would need to figure out how to crisp them up a bit. Maybe it’s because I used large bananas, but they were too gummy for me. I tried butter on the waffle iron, maybe gf flour with the oats.

      You could fry them in a little oil to crisp them up. 🙂 Glad your kids loved them.

    Love all the toppings ideas! Since they’re so healthy, I would go with a dollop of double cream and some strawberry preserves. Sinful, but delicious!
