Zucchini Oat Waffles

Who said waffles had to be sweet? These Zucchini Oat Waffles are made with fresh herbs, shredded zucchini and Parmesan for a healthy, savory breakfast! Top them with roasted or sauteed veggies and a perfectly poached egg and you’ve got yourself a super healthy start to the day!

I love a good, sweet breakfast waffle, but this savoury version is right up my alley! I definitely lean towards savoury breakfasts. Always have. While most kids I knew were eating sugary cereals, I was that weirdo that preferred plain cheerios. Not the honey nut version or even multigrain- they tasted too sweet. As plain and low in sugar as they come, thanks.

So its no surprise that I am all about these waffles! They’re lovely on their own with a little bit of butter, but even better topped with blistered toms and a poached egg. Now, that, my friends, is a breakfast!

Did I mention they are healthy too? Not only do you not need to douse them in sugary syrup, but the recipe is made with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about eating. Oats, loads of zucchini and fresh herbs, and coconut oil are among the ingredients. A smidge of Parmesan adds some extra flavour. It all comes together to make something delicious to start the morning off right!

How to make Zucchini Oat Waffles

To make these zucchini oat waffles, I use:

  • 1 1/2 cups oats (be sure to use gluten free oats for a gluten free waffle)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded and water squeezed out
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon basil, chopped

To start, I place oats, baking powder, salt, eggs. milk and coconut oil in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

In a bowl, I add the shredded zucchini, herbs and Parmesan cheese. Then I add the batter from the blender and stir everything to combine it. Then I let it sit for 10 minutes.

Next, I heat my waffle iron on medium heat and pour 1/2 cup of batter into the center of the iron. I close the lid and cook it for approximately 5 minutes. You may need to adjust the cooking time as cooking times will vary depending on your waffle iron.

That’s it!

I hope you enjoy these waffles! Bon appetit!
