Two of my very favorite things are coming at you today — waffles and blueberries!  Waffles are my special breakfast food of choice, and adding blueberries to the equation only makes things better.

These One Bowl Oat Flour Blueberry Waffles served with a drizzle of maple syrup, fresh blueberries and coffee is my idea of the perfect breakfast or brunch.

All Mondays should start off like this!

One Bowl Blueberry Oat Flour Waffles

I’m going to give you a brief summary about why I’ve stopped using wheat flour in my waffles for the past several months.  I mentioned in this post that I’ve had some digestive issues, which I’m working with my doctor to resolve.

These issues have led me to follow a low FODMAP diet for the time being, which includes dramatically reducing the amount of wheat that I eat (among so many other things).

Reducing my wheat intake has been relatively easy, and experimenting with various types of wheat-free flours has even been fun for me.

I’ve always enjoyed incorporating different types of flours into my baking, but I’ve never tried eliminating wheat from the equation completely until I had to several months back.

Surprisingly, I’ve hardly missed eating wheat at all.

You might think gluten-free waffles don’t sound appealing at all, but I promise that you’ll love these oat flour waffles.

The inspiration for these gluten-free oat flour waffles came from the cookbook Love Real Food by Catherine Taylor (from the blog Cookie and Kate).  I adapted the recipe from the cookbook over time, which is the recipe that I’m sharing with you today.

These One Bowl Blueberry Oat Flour Waffles are extremely hearty with a delicious oat-y flavor.  They’re golden brown and crispy on the outside, yet fluffy on the inside.

And those juicy blueberries!  The blueberries take them over the top.

I hate doing dishes, so I made this a one bowl recipe.  The waffle batter comes together in minutes, and you’ll get (8) Belgian sized waffles ready to eat in about 20 minutes total.

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

This recipe makes (8) Belgian-sized waffles. These waffles are so hearty and satisfying that one is plenty for me.   To make more, smaller sized waffles, simply fill the waffle cavities half way full instead.

Serve the waffles with more fresh blueberries and maple syrup, and they’re delicious topped with almond butter as well!

Waffles may be made in advance and frozen for the perfect make ahead breakfast.

The coconut oil may be substituted with canola oil or melted butter.  If blueberries aren’t your thing, substitute with your favorite chopped fruit or chocolate chips.
