You may have noticed that a lot of gluten-free recipes—recipes that have been adapted to be gluten free—are sad consolation prizes compared to the real deal. Not true with this gluten-free oat waffle recipe. It’s made with oat flour, which has a nutty, earthy flavor that, honestly, might make you forget all about waffles made with wheat flour.
One thing to keep in mind with oat flour is that while oats themselves don’t contain gluten, not all oats (and hence not all oat flour) are gluten-free (thanks, cross-contamination). Check the label and make sure you are getting a certified gluten-free product.
