I recently purchased a Vita-Mix, and am having fun trying new recipes. We are loving this blender pancake recipe, and so I wanted to try a blender waffle recipe! I cam across this one, by Sue Gregg, that is made from brown rice and oatmeal. I’m always game to try new ways to incorporate more grains (less wheat) in our diet, so I gave them a try!
They are more crumbly than my regular waffle recipe, but we still enjoyed them. :)
Rice and Oatmeal Blender Waffles
1 1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup brown rice
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 Tbsp flax seeds
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Put milk, oil, vanilla, brown rice and oatmeal in blender, blend on high for 3-5 minutes, depending on the strength of your blender. Add in egg, and flax seeds, blend 1-3 minutes. Finally add baking powder, baking soda, and salt, blend just until it is mixed through.
Bake in waffle maker according to directions, but make sure to spray oil before every batch! These are not as high in oil content as other waffles, and stick easily. You can also bake these like pancakes, if desired!
