Single Lady Oat Waffles {gluten free, vegan}

January 17, 2016 | 10 comments

Heyyyy I’m back!

With waffles. For one. Because who can be bothered to stand next to the waffle maker for agessss patiently pouring waffle batter and scoping out waffles? Not meeeee.

These are perfect for a school morning. You see, I have this thing for routines. I do not like routines to be broken. Which is kinda why I was upset that I had nothing to post last week. But I was also sick last week.

I digress.


My morning routine has been, for the longest time now, the same. So same that I’ve got it down to the minute. Saying it that I’ve got it down to the second would be nearly an exageration. 15 minutes for breakfast. Exactly 15 No more, no less. 10 minutes for finishing my homework that I procrastinated on that I spent forever on but didn’t finish or for studying reviewing for tests that I didn’t feel like studying for the night before.

As you can imagine, 15 minutes for breakfast is not a lot of time. That’s why I get so annoyed if I have to make too many waffles. I fall behind on my daily routine and I really really don’t like that.

That’s right, I’m an routine obsessed leading follower (ROLF)

So I made up this 1 waffle recipe to help the rest of us deal with the struggles of more than one waffle. Of course, if you have family you might want to quadruple this or use the one waffle to watch the envy creep up on their faces, but let’s not do that, okay?

Also, you might just be like, you crazy face, why don’t you just make multiple waffles on the weekends and freeze them?. Microwaved reheated waffles are not the same. That soggy little slice certainly does not equate to a steamy, crispy, fresh made waffle in the morning and I will not stand for it. If I’m getting up at 6 in the morning, I better have a good breakfast to make up for the 30 extra minutes I could have stayed in bed πŸ˜‰

These waffles are perfect. They’re slightly bumpy and hearty but soft as a pillow and fluffier than feathers. They keep me full until 6th hour (aka lunch aka chaos aka homework time) which is great because during 5th hour, I will be thinking about how freaking awesome Emily Dickinson’s poems are instead of how everything in the poems symbolize chicken and fruit.

Also, powdered sugar + berries or maple syrup + salted butter take these over the top even though they might not be vegan then. :/

// Since oat flour is gluten free, you can technically beat the crap out of the batter and still end up with tender waffles. Just saying… πŸ˜›

    Do you follow your schedule on the weekend? And 15 minutes for breakfast sounds like a lot (if I’m not making something fancy). I usually eat yogurt and granola, on my way to school, haha. These waffles look delcious and your pictures look gorgeous. πŸ™‚

    Ohh! Anne, these look delicious! I agree, microwaved waffles are not the same AT ALL. Ha. I’m homeschooled and I wake up an hour earlier than you do!

    I am SOOO impressed that you have the motivation to make waffles on a school day – I’m always a fruit, muesli and yogurt girl (but it has to be gooood yogurt!). Love that you made it a single serve recipe too, and its super healthy – definitely saving for uni this year! x
