This recipe comes to you just in time for Mother’s Day! This year, Vitamix is calling all moms to encourage our kids to play in the kitchen! In my experience, it’s been so important to let my little ones have fun with food. They love helping me cook and bake, especially when it comes to using the Vitamix! Seriously, Bethany and Gabe will often rush to be the first to get to turn the blender on and off! {Can you blame them}?!

So this year, I created this delicious Blender Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Waffles in partnership with Vitamix! It is a great recipe to let your kids help with! You can even send this recipe to daddy so he can make these waffles with the kids and serve mommy a nice breakfast in bed! 😉

Also, we all know that waffles are just as fun to eat as they are to make! Let your kids use their creativity to top them with delicious fruit, nuts and seeds! If you’re really feeling crazy, pull out the whipped cream or chocolate syrup for an extra-special treat! My tribe had so much fun brainstorming fun ways to decorate our waffles!

Blender Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Waffles: Method

These waffles are SO easy to make! Start by grinding the oats in the Vitamix and then mixing all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. I only recommend using a high-powered blender like the Vitamix, because it ensures that all the ingredients will be well blended and the waffle batter will be silky smooth!

Next, use the Vitamix to blend the wet ingredients. I LOVE that, thanks to my Vitamix, I can make waffles that are full of fruit and high-protein ingredients like peanut butter instead of loads of sugar and butter/oil!

Blender Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Waffles: Substitutions

I tested this recipe with a few variations, but as always I think they taste the best as written! 🙂

Peanut Butter: If peanut butter isn’t your favorite {not sure if we can be friends}, or you have a family member with a peanut allergy {the only acceptable reason not to eat the good stuff}, you can substitute any nut or seed butter with great results.

Old-fashioned oats: If you keep oat flour on hand, you can simply use 3/4 cup oat flour and skip the step of grinding the oats in the Vitamix.

Tapioca flour: Cornstarch or arrowroot powder are acceptable substitutes for Tapioca flour. I did make a batch of these Blender Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Waffles using 100% oat flour (1 cup total), but they were much denser and took longer to cook than when tapioca flour was used. Since tapioca flour {or cornstarch or arrowroot powder} is lighter than oat flour, it gives the waffles a fluffier texture. My kids loved both versions and couldn’t tell the difference! 😉

Almond milk: Any non-dairy or dairy milk works great.

Coconut sugar: The only substitute I tried was raw, organic sugar…and had great results! I suspect any granulated sweetener would work well!
