Recipe revised 1/5/09 Recipe revised 1/5/09
Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup broken or chopped pecans (or walnuts)
    2 cups oatmeal (dry) (Old-Fashioned or Quick -- NOT Instant)
    2 tablespoons Canola oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 -1/4 cups water
    2 tablespoons brown sugar


(Use a nonstick waffle iron)
Put all ingredients into blender and blend well. Then, turn on waffle iron and let heat. Batter will thicken slightly while waiting. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray. Bake on the iron until the light turns off, at least 5 minutes, or until done. Don't peek too early, or the waffle will separate and make a mess.

Makes 4 waffles, about 7" x 7" (Actually, I pour a circle onto the center of the waffle iron, and it does not fill in the corners)
Nutrition info is for 1 waffle

For 1/3 larger quantity use:
2-2/3 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews, or combination)
3 cups water
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt

This amount will still fit in one blender. Follow instructions above.

OVERNIGHT VARIATION (Posted 8/20/2014 - This is the way I make this recipe now):

2-2/3 cup oatmeal (may use 3 tablespoons of rolled rye flakes as part of the 2-2/3 cup oatmeal)*
2/3 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews, or combination)
3 cups water
1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
3 tablespoons coconut sugar, palm sugar or brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Start the night before. Put all ingredients into blender and blend well. Pour into a bowl, cover and let the batter stand overnight at room temperature so the oats and nuts can soak (this helps get rid of anti-nutrients). In the morning, turn on the waffle iron and let heat. If necessary grease waffle iron. Bake the batter on the iron until the light turns off, at least 5 minutes, or until done.

Makes about 4 or 5 waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron (mine is 7" X 7") and serves 4 people. This recipe is easily cut in half to serve 2.

*Note: I just read that including rolled rye flakes with the oats helps to decrease the phytic acid in the oats during the overnight soaking.

I serve these with fruit and/or coconut oil (instead of butter) and maple syrup.

(Edit 3/26/21). I recently got a high speed blender (Vita-mix) and when I tried to make this recipe it blended everything too finely and it ended up like glue! So here is how I make it now:

I do the overnight version and I use “quick oatmeal”. I put the oatmeal and the salt together in a bowl. Then in my high speed blender I blend together the nuts, water, vinegar, sweetener, and oil (I use coconut or avocado oil). Then I pour the blended ingredients into the oatmeal and salt and mix wel. I cover the bowl and let it stand overnight at room temperature before I bake it in the morning. This recipe does take a little longer to bake than regular waffles, but it is so good! As I make the waffles I put them in a warm oven directly on the oven shelf until I am ready to serve.

    I just finished making these--I followed the recipe exactly, except I made pancakes (since I don't have a waffle iron!). They are PERFECT for a post-run snack for runners.... The recipe made 14 pancakes (4 inches each or 1/4 cup batter for each), so that made 1 pancake have 98 calories! - 4/10/09

    Sorry...after reading the rave reviews...I was very disappointed. I made exactly as written. Not much flavor except for what the syrup adds. Too heavy. Even my son agreed...not a real winner for him. - 4/12/09

    I think you need to make this batter WELL in advance. I did like the instructions say and made it first, then plugged in the waffle iron. By the time the iron was ready, the batter was still extremely liquid - like WATER. I tried baking one like that - not a great result, although it tasted OK. - 4/26/09

    I made these this morning and their were fabulous. I am going to try putting flavored extracts in for fruit flavors, etc. Thasnks for a great recipe. They were great with homemade maple syrup. - 4/11/09
