Ingredients: (makes 2 waffles)
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp good quality salt
(optionally) spices of choice - garlic powder, dried herbs
3/4 cup unsweetened milk of choice (eg. oat milk, almond milk or soy milk)
1 tbsp liquid oil (eg. coconut oil), plus some extra oil to grease the waffle iron
half avocado, sliced
soft boiled egg
handful of baby spinach leaves (or other greens of choice)
chili flakes, sesame or hemp seeds, salt and pepper
1. Put the oats in a food processor or high speed blender and blend until you reach the texture of whole grain flour (a little rough but powdery). Add baking powder, salt and (if using) spices and shortly blend again.
2. Pour milk and oil into the blender with the oat mixture and blend to combine. The batter will be quite runny at this point. Leave it for 10-15 minutes to rest and it will get thicker, as the oats will absorb most of the liquid.
3. Grease a hot waffle iron with a little bit of oil. Bake waffles on medium/high heat for about 7 minutes or until golden brown and crispy outside. The exact time will depend on your waffle iron so check on them from time to time.
4. Top your waffles with spinach leaves, sliced avocado and soft boiled egg, sprinkle with chili flakes, seeds, salt and pepper and serve immediately.
