When my husband insisted me to get the waffle iron, I kept rejecting it because I didn’t think that I would be using it quite often. I didn’t want yet another kitchen equipment to occupy my counter space. Boy was I wrong! The waffle iron has become one of the most frequently used appliance at home. I’m trying new waffle recipes almost every weekend. I got this idea for blueberry oats waffles from one of the magazines I was browsing. It was an usual waffle recipe with eggs, but I decided to make it vegan using my vegan waffle recipe.

- These vegan blueberry oats waffles turned out to be great. It looked lovely too with specks of cooked blueberries.
- The quantity of water depends upon the type of flour you are using. So start with 2 tablespoons and then increase if required.
- The waffles are not very sweet with the 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. But if you are serving it with maple syrup or other sweet sauce it should be fine.
