I kid you not, these taste EXACTLY like banana bread. I mean if banana bread and oatmeal got married, this would be the child. Hehehe, I’m lame. These are made with ingredients like oat flour, coconut oil, cinnamon, almond milk, and a flax egg. You can even add in 2 tbsp. of vanilla protein or collagen if you want!
A lot of you guys have asked me about flax eggs. If you’ve never tried baking with them, they are SUCH a good egg alternative. Literally all you have to do is mix 1 tbsp. ground flax with 3 tbsp. warm water. I like to let mine sit for 10-15 minutes because I think it produces the best results. I know some flax egg instructions say 5 minutes is enough, but that hasn’t worked very well for me.
Hope you enjoy these!
Makes 2 servings
- 1 cup oat flour
- 2 tbsp. chocolate chips
- 2 tsp. baking powder (or for a corn-free version use 1/2 tsp. baking soda + 1 tsp. cream of tartar)
- 2 tbsp. vanilla protein or collagen, optional
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar, can omit if using vanilla protein
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 large banana, chopped
- 1 flax egg, or egg (1 tbsp. ground flax soaked in 3 tbsp. warm water for 10-15 minutes)
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Combine the dry ingredients (minus the chocolate chips). Make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined, don’t over stir. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Preheat your waffle iron and spray with cooking spray. If batter is too thick, add a small amount of almond milk to thin it out. Pour mixture onto hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown. It took me several cycles until mine were nice and crispy.
