  1. Hiya, really glad you found out about the blitzed oats as I found a recipe for mug cake with them and hadn’t had a chance to ring. Looking forward to trying the waffles and have ordered the mould. Thank you x

  2. Made these today delicious, added some more fat free yoghurt and frozen fruit, very filling. Bought the mould from Amazon and so easy to use

  3. Just had these for my breakfast absolutely delicious. Didnt have vanilla flavoiring so used salted caramel instead. I was worried that they wouldnt come out of the mould ok but they looked amazing. Will definitely be making them again.

  4. Just wondering if it fills all 5 sections of the mould using the recipe or should I double it? I want to make enough for me, my husband and son.

    1. Hi Brenda, you could try a stick blender, but you could also do it without blitzing the oats, the texture won’t be as smooth but they will still turn out fine 🙂

    1. Hi Jane
      We’ve never tried, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to batch cook them, freeze them and then just toast/reheat them when you want. let us know how you get on if you try 🙂

    2. I freeze them as I make up a.big batch, then just take them out when required. Pop in toaster, or a dry frying pan, they’re lovely

  5. Hi Kate, these waffles look amazing! How long would you recommend if I were to cook the mixture in a waffle maker? Thanks hun. X

  6. Hi I made these as per the recipe however they turned out soggy in the middle why is that ? I cooked for 25 mins then turned out and cooked for another 10 mins
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Lisa
      The consistency of waffles and baked oats can be a bit of a personal preference really, so if you find them a bit soggy you could try using 1 egg instead of 2.

  7. Ola!

    Has anyone successfully ‘waffled’ these in a waffle maker?
    If yes, could I ask what times you used?
    I’m going to have a try later, so come what may, will try and post times on here

    1. Hi Di
      We’ve not tried, but we know others have. You may need to reduce the liquid, egg and/or yogurt so it binds together a bit better

  8. Hi, has anyone used a waffle maker for this? I have one and it makes them very soggy. If anyone has used the maker any tips? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jaime
      We’ve not tried, but we know others have. Cooking in a waffle mould would probably dry them out a bit more than a waffle maker so you may need to reduce the liquid, egg and/or yogurt so it binds together a bit better.

  9. Hello, a lot of your recipes use a food processor which I don’t have. Are you able to blend the oats the make them finer?

  10. Hi. I cooked these last week but the middle was quite soggy and had a strange texture. Is this what happens or should I have put them in for longer?

    1. Hi Lisa
      Yes you can use other sweeteners, but bear in mind Sukrin is the same weight, sweetness and consistency as normal sugar so you use it like for like, unlike other sweeteners which are lighter and sweeter. This means you probably wouldn’t need as much normal sweetener. You can usually find conversion information on the website of the brand of sweetener you are using

  11. These are just so good! I don’t have a waffle maker but borrowed a pancake maker instead. The recepie made 4 saucer-ish sized pancakes – my son snaffled 2 – but the 2 I managed to retain ownership of were fab! I will definitely be making these again.

  12. Made these this morning, I mixed a tiny bit of sugar and cinammon together and put over the top of them with strawberries on the side. They were lovely 🙂

  13. Have just bought a waffle maker and tried these, it overflowed and was a mess plus separated in middle. Where did I go wrong?

  14. Hi
    I measured everything very carefully. Had too much mixture for the red silicone mould I had bought from Amazon. Made a quick pancake with surplus! What did I do wrong? Tasted very nice but not as brown as on the picture, even after putting back in the oven for the first extra 5 minutes.

    1. Hi Trisha,

      Perhaps your mould was smaller than the one we used? All ovens vary, so it might be that your oven needs to be hotter to get them to brown better 😊

  15. Made the strawberry and vanilla waffles for our breakfast this morning. Absolutely delicious! They didn’t look quite as golden as the ones in the photograph. Was I supposed to brush them with egg/put on some sort of glaze before finishing off in the oven? Would love them to look more like yours!!!

  16. I only used 3 taps as not got a sweet tooth and really enjoyed them but will try them with 2 tbsp to see if there much of a difference

  17. These were really scrumpy and very filling. I tripled recipe for 3 people and it made 10 waffles so works out at 3 and a third waffles each! I could only eat 1

  18. Made these at the weekend. Very tasty. I did make a change to your recipe though. Having watched Nigella making normal
    Waffles, she beat her egg whites to soft peaks. So I separated my eggs. Beat the whites then folded in to the rest.
    They came out lovely and fluffy.
    (I often find these ‘egg’ recipes come out very eggy. But we’re just like waffles. Some amazing ideas on your website. Thank you xx

  19. Can you use cook the waffles in the microwave instead of the oven? I have just received my mould in the post and want to try it immediaetely at work which only has a microwave so was crossing my fingers I could try for lunch!!!

  20. Hi, tried these this morning, used a strawberry mullerlight, they tasted lovely but they stuck to the silicone mould a little so they didn’t have the ‘waffle look’. Does anyone know how to prevent from sticking please?

  21. Hi,

    I’m still getting my head around this recipe; but am I daft or can you not simply use oatmeal instead of blitzing the porridge oats? Would it not then be the same thing?

    Thanks,

    Gillian.

  22. Hello can you weigh the oats when there all ready blended I’m planning on blitzing loads of oats at the same time to make it quicker in the mornings
