Simple Oat Waffles

Last Wednesday was an amazing day.  My three-mile morning run was cool and breezy, just like fall time should be.  In the afternoon we had a refreshing downpour of rain, you know, the kind that makes you just want to curl up by the fireplace and read a good book all afternoon.  With your fuzzy slippers on, of course.  To top things off, I got to pick the first bright red and juicy pomegranates of the season.  Now that is what I call fall.

So of course I had to share with you the joys of my harvest.  I love how fresh pomegranates give a zesty flavor and a colorful pop to everything.  A dollop of homemade coconut whipped cream with a handful of deep red pomegranates turned out to be the perfect topping for these simple oat waffles.

With just five ingredients, you couldn’t get much simpler than these vegan oat waffles.  When you want to bring your family together for a special sit-down breakfast that doesn’t take a ton of work, these oat waffles are just the thing.

    Hi Kristi,
    I recognize you and Ryan. I’m so happy I found your website! My daughter and I have decided to change our diets and eat vegan and have been looking for good recipes. Vegans have mostly gotten a bad rap…food being tasteless, boring, expensive, or complicated. But I know that’s not true…so glad you are helping people be aware of how wonderful food can taste without dairy, and less expensive too.

    • Thanks for visiting. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the simpler recipes :-) Ryan said he knows you, too. That is very true about what people think of vegans. Fortunately I think that image is beginning to change, now, and there are so many more resources out there for vegans. Make sure to check out my page with links to my other top favorite vegan blogs, too!

  2. The 3rd picture is just beautiful, Kristi! It looks so professional!

  3. Think this recipe would work as pancakes?

  4. I just bought a pomegranate over the weekend – I’ll make these waffles to go with! Thanks for the recipe!
