Why should you make the Pumpkin Oat Waffles?

They are nutritious and delicious. Oats is a very nutrient dense whole grain. You get a lot of health benefits when you consume complex carbohydrates. They are high in fiber, protein, antioxidants, and vitamins.

Oats is usually gluten free. If you are sensitive to gluten read the label and ingredient list. Make sure that the oats you purchased is not processed in a facility that also stores or packages grains that contain gluten.

Unlike most waffles made with whole grains these have a great texture and taste. They are not heavy and dense.

Helpful tips about Making the Waffles

The first thing you have to do is to preheat your waffle maker. If it s not preheated well and you pour the batter the waffle most likely will stick terribly.

You need a powerful blender to make this batter. I use Blendtec and it does the job very well.

You can serve the waffles warm with toppings of your choice or you can make them ahead. I often make waffles and pancakes ahead and store them in the refrigerator. It is easy to reheat them in the morning. I usually use a toaster or a toaster oven to warm them up.

These waffles freeze well too. To defrost them add them in a microwave, toaster, or toaster oven. I have a defrosting program on my toaster that makes them perfectly warm and fluffy.

To make this recipe heart healthy replace the butter with olive oil and don’t serve the waffles with cream.

    I followed the recipe and these did not cook on the inside. They did burn on the outside after 10 minutes in my waffle iron. These were fairly disappointing.

    • Oh, no. So sorry that recipe didn’t work out the way it supposed to. I made those waffles so many times and they always turn out great. I’ve tested the recipe with different waffle makers too. I wish I know how to help.
      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your feedback. I really appreciate it.

    I had the same issue as the previous commenter. After trying two batches they were constantly burned on the outside and gooey on the inside.

    • I’m really sorry, Paul. I honestly don’t know why you have this problem. I’ve tested this recipe with three different brands of waffle makers and all waffles came out great. You can watch my YouTube video where I demonstrated good results with two different waffle makers.
      If it burns the edges and the middle of the waffle is still undercooked, I assume that your waffle maker is too hot. If you have an option to reduce the heat and cook for longer time that might create a better result.
      Another thing to consider is proper measuring of the ingredients. Using measuring cups and spoons for the dry ingredients and measuring pitchers for the liquids. When you measure the dry ingredients always scoop more than you need. Then level it with the back of a knife.
      And lastly, check the expiration date on your baking powder. Once you open it is good for only three months. If the baking powder is not active, that might be the reason for a gooey center.
      I hope that helps.
