Makes 6 Servings

  • 2 c (162 g) rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 tsp (1.2 mL) salt
  • 1 tbsp (13 g) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract


  1. Preheat waffle iron to medium-high.

  2. Combine oats, 2 c (475 mL) of water, banana, salt, sugar, and vanilla in a blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth. The batter should be pourable. If it becomes too thick as it stands, add a bit more water to achieve desired consistency.

  3. Lightly spray waffle iron with vegetable oil if using. Pour in enough batter to reach edges and cook until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes without lifting lid. If you don’t have a waffle iron, you can make pancakes. Serve with fresh fruit or spreadable fruit—like banana.
