Oatmeal long-life waffles

Part of this recipe is based on a classic vanilla waffle recipe, but then I substituted half of the pastry flour for oatmeal. To start with, I thought about making them 100% oatmeal waffles. I did a test and made half of my batter with just oatmeal and then I used 50/50 for the other half. I already had a sneaking suspicion that the pure oatmeal batter would stick to the waffle iron and I was right!

Preparation time

15 min preparation + 20 min cooking + 1 hour resting


22 waffles




For 22 waffles
  • 125 g oatmeal
  • 125 g pastry flour
  • 135 g Zùsto
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 180 g liquid margarine (from a squeeze bottle)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Mixing bowl
  • Waffle iron

Preparation method

  1. Put the oatmeal in a blender and blend into flour. Place the oat flour, pastry flour, Zùsto and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well before adding the next egg.
  3. When the eggs are thoroughly mixed in, add the margarine, salt and vanilla extract. Mix briefly until all of the ingredients are well mixed.
  4. Allow the batter to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  5. Follow the user instructions for your waffle iron and heat up the waffle iron. Take 30 g of batter and bake the waffles until golden brown. I measure out 30 g by putting the batter in a separate bowl (I use 2 bowls so I can measure out the right amount of batter into one of them and then spoon it into the waffle iron using a scraper). Be careful when you take the waffles out of your waffle iron!
  6. Tip: don’t want to weigh out quantities? That’s not a problem, but just make sure that the waffles are not too big. They will break quite easily when you take them out of the waffle iron, so use a fork for this, or even better a waffle fork. 
  7. Leave them to cool on a cooling rack.
