Gluten Free Millet and Oat Blender Waffles

Gluten Free Millet and Oat Waffles // #vegan #glutenfree

Happy almost long weekend! You’re nearly there! You probably know what you’re going to eat tomorrow for the big feast, but how are you going to show your long-weekend mornings some love?

I suggest you sleep in, put on your cozy slippers because, let’s be honest, those pajamas are staying on for as long as possible, and sip a large mug of coffee while eating some crispy-yet-fluffy gluten free waffles doused in maple syrup.

Sounds pretty darn perfect, doesn’t it? Mmmmm YES.

I had planned on sharing a salad today, because obviously that’s a little more Thanksgiving themed, but I figured you might enjoy a little venture away from the hearty sides, main dishes, and entertaining foods. Instead, today you get a healthy waffle recipe that’s perfect for two people. Me and you, you and me, and our cozy weekend morning.

Is that creepy? You don’t need to eat waffles with me if you don’t want to.

These waffles are about as easy as easy can be; throw chia seeds, millet, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt in a blender and blend into a flour, then add the wet ingredients, blend to incorporate, and cook in your waffle iron until golden brown.

The millet adds a nutty flavor and just a slight texture to the fluffy waffles, while the chia seeds work with the wet ingredients to form a vegan-friendly egg alternative. The wet ingredients include just a bit of coconut oil, almond milk, water, vanilla extract, and orange juice for a little sweet, bright, subtle flavor.

Lightly-sweetened, crispy, hearty and healthy long-weekend love.

Gluten Free Millet and Oat Blender Waffles

Simple gluten free waffles that come together quickly in a blender! Crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and super wholesome.

Yield: 2 waffles

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup millet
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ tablespoon cane sugar
  • ½ tablespoon baking powder
  • Small pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
  • 6 tablespoons warm water
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Combine chia seeds, millet, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a blender and blend until a fine powder forms - it will look like regular flour when you're done.
  3. Add the coconut oil, water, almond milk, orange juice, and vanilla to the blender, and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour half of the batter on your waffle iron (I don't need to grease mine, but be sure to grease yours if you do!), and cook according to waffle iron instructions.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with maple syrup!

    Love the idea of munching on healthy, nutty, grainy waffles at breakfast, along with my morning coffee! I’m trying this recipe this weekend, but I’m going to top the waffles with yacon syrup instead of maple syrup.

      Great, I hope you love them! Also I just had to google yacon syrup – I will have to check that out!

    Made these waffles for our Valentine’s Day breakfast this morning and they are WONDERFUL! Nutty and crispy, and not overly sweet with just a touch of orange flavor that my husband and I just loved! Topped them with clementine segments and pomegranates, and used a bit of the leftover orange juice to give extra flavor to the warm maple syrup. Delicious!! These made a perfect start to our day!
