We have had a waffle iron for over a year, but to date, I haven’t used it a lot. Mainly because I didn’t have a great recipe. A healthy waffle recipe, a waffle recipe that my family will enjoy but will also fill them up and keep them energised for a while!
My kids love pancakes and waffles, I find though that if we make traditional pancake or waffle recipes based on plain wheat flour, that although delicious my kids almost want a second breakfast an hour later. That totally DOES MY HEAD IN!
As far as pancakes go, I’m across that now, I have lots of filling pancake recipes on my site that keep my kids fueled for at least a few hours. But until now and these Banana Oat Blueberry Waffles I didn’t have a successful waffle recipe that I would also deem to be a ‘Healthy Waffle Recipe’.

What makes a Healthy Waffle Recipe?
Everyone is going to have a different measure for what they consider ‘healthy’. For me and my family when it comes to something like waffles or a breakfast I’m looking for something with sustained energy, high fibre and low added/refined sugar. This healthy waffle recipe made with banana, oats and blueberries ticks all these boxes. Different people will have different boxes though, so my ‘healthy’ could be different to your ‘healthy’.
Healthy Waffle Recipe - Banana Oat & Blueberry
Yield 8 waffles
An easy healthy waffle recipe, made with whole wheat and oats, flavoured with banana and blueberries, a delicious high protein and fibre breakfast, snack or for lunchboxes
- 1 cup wholemeal flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 bananas (approx 220g)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup blueberries
- Place the dry ingredients (flour, oats cinnamon and baking powder) into a large mixing bowl
- Mix the dry ingredients so they are evenly distributed
- Place the bananas, milk, and eggs in a blender or smoothie maker (I use a nutribullet)
- Add the smoothie mix to the dry ingredients, mix with a wooden spoon
- Stir the blueberries into the waffle batter
- Prepare your waffle iron as per it's instructions. I find a medium heat best for this recipe
- I use spray oil on the waffle before adding the waffle batter
- Cook as per your waffle iron instructions
- You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries
- I serve these with yoghurt fruit and a little maple syrup for a fancy breakfast, or just plain as a snack or lunchbox filler for the kids
