In my opinion, nothing beats a Sunday brunch. Whether it’s a small group or the whole family, I love gathering to enjoy delicious food, hot coffee, and fun conversations.

I have to say, these waffles are the perfect recipe to make for any brunch or breakfast. They are hearty, colorful and sweet waffle perfection, that will have everyone asking for seconds. Don’t let the long name fool you though – these fluffy waffles with crispy edges are super easy to make, and even easier to eat!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This recipe was even featured in VegNews – check it out HERE!
  • Made with oats and a high quality gluten free all purpose flour, these waffles are hearty but not too heavy. And, they’re amazingly on the healthier side, too!
  • Let me say – the cinnamon syrup really takes these waffles to the next level. Thankfully, this syrup is super easy to make.
  • This recipe makes 6 large waffles, making it the perfect vegan brunch recipe.

Can you put the berries in the waffle batter?

  • I have actually tried this before, and find that the waffles don’t cook properly this way! So I would really recommend enjoying your berries as a topping only.

Can you eat the waffles without the addition of the berries?

  • Yes, absolutely!  These waffles are awesome on their own, too.

How to Make Vegan and Gluten Free Mixed Berry Oatmeal Waffles with Cinnamon Syrup:

1. Start by pre-heating your waffle iron.

2. Stir together the berries and sugar in a bowl and set them aside for now.

3. Next, add the FLAX EGG ingredients to a small bowl and set it aside, as well.

4. Then, place all WET ingredients in a small bowl and set it aside!

5. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together all of the DRY ingredients. Afterwards, add the WET ingredients to the dry mix and stir well to combine.

6. Once that’s done, stir in the FLAX EGG as well. For best results, allow batter to sit for 5-10 minutes before making your first waffle.

7. Grease your piping hot waffle iron by spraying it with oil or by applying melted non-dairy butter with a pastry brush.

8. Add batter to the greased waffle iron until it’s about 2/3 full and then immediately shut the lid. Cook for about 3 -4 minutes or until golden brown. It’s usually best to let it cook a little longer than you think you should!

9. Carefully and very slowly open the lid and use the tines of a fork to help remove the waffle from the iron.

10. Repeat steps 7 – 9 until all of the batter is used, about 6 waffles total.

Tip: Keep all cooked waffles on a cooling rack placed on a baking sheet in an oven set on 150-200 degrees. This will keep your waffles hot and crispy until all of them are made. Now you and your family and friends can all enjoy your waffles together!

For the Cinnamon Syrup:

Simply add the two ingredients to a saucepan over medium heat and mix them together with a fork until all cinnamon is incorporated and the syrup is warmed through.

To Assemble:

Place hot waffles on a plate and top with non-dairy butter, berries and cinnamon syrup. Enjoy immediately!
