Kids love to eat waffles any time of the day. However, we all know it isn’t a healthy option to start the day. Kids need energy to stay active, and regular waffles won’t make the cut. Moreover, kids might get hungry within 1-2 hours with everyday waffles. This is when oat waffles come in handy!

However, there are a few things to keep in mind. If your child is lactose intolerant, you can make these oat waffles with plant-based milk alternatives.

For a lighter texture, blitz the oats into oat flour and use that instead.
Make sure to cook the oat waffles on medium heat so it cooks all the way through. Moreover, since the recipe has blueberry, it might stick to the waffle maker. Grease it well with spray oil to avoid the blueberry from sticking to the pan.
