Whenever I ask my boys what they want for breakfast, it’s always waffles.  Chocolate chip waffles, to be exact.

Waffles are my favorite breakfast too, which I presume makes my boys a chip off the old block. šŸ™‚

When I began a gluten-free diet almost 2 years ago, I wondered if I’d like gluten free waffles.  I sincerely had my doubts.

As it turns out, oat flour makes incredible gluten-free waffles, and I prefer them to regular waffles. 

Especially when there’s pumpkin and chocolate chips involved!

Oat flour is simply ground oatmeal.  You can purchase oat flour, or make your own using a high powered blender or food processor.

Are oats gluten free?

Oats are gluten free as long as the oats aren’t made in a facility where they can be contaminated with gluten.  

If gluten-intolerant, be sure oat flour and oats say gluten-free on the package.
