Equipment

  • Blender
  • waffle iron

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups rolled oats, uncooked use certified gluten free in gf is needed
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted + extra for greasing
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas can sub unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups loosely packed spinach

Instructions

  • In your blender, combine oats, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Pulse until the oats are broken down into a flour-like texture. Pour into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In your now-empty blender, combine banana, eggs, oil, maple syrup/honey, spinach, and vanilla. Blend until very smooth and spinach is completely pureed.
  • Pour oat mixture back into the blender and blend to combine. You might need to scape down the sides of the blender once or twice to ensure everything is incorporated.
  • Heat up your waffle iron. Heat up your waffle iron (see above for which iron I use). If needed, put a little oil on the iron's plates to prevent sticking. Once hot, pour 1/2 cup of batter onto your hot iron.
  •  Depending on your waffle iron, cook for 4-6 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • Remove the cooked waffle from the iron. To keep it warm while you cook, place cooked waffles on baking sheet in a 200℉ oven.
  • Enjoy warm or let cool and store in fridge or freezer until needed.
