This is a healthier version of waffles. If you have leftovers, you can freeze them and reheat in the toaster. They are great spread with peanut butter, too.

These had the slightest zucchini bread taste. I served them with buttermilk syrup but they would be great with maple as well. Next time I'll up the cinnamon for more of that zucchini bread flavor. I used whole wheat pastry flour for a more tender texture. This recipe makes 4 belgian waffles (4 cups batter). Read More

I used a tablespoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of cloves. I used half whole wheat flour and half bread flour. I also used half and half instead of milk bc I had it in the fridge and it needed to get used up soon. Also was out of brown sugar so used white sugar. Finally, rather than melted butter, used applesauce. I updated this last time and it didn't save which is too bad bc I made notes about the wheat to white flour ratio that I cannot recall. Read More

I modified the recipe a little to make it appetizing for my kids because I wasn't sure how they would respond to the shredded zucchini. So I put the liquid ingredients in the Vitamix until they we're well blended. Then poured the wet ingredients into the dry and hand stirred until well blended. I used 1/4 less flour and about a tablespoon more milk to make the mix less thick. The whole family loved it! Read More

Enjoyable enough. Will keep these in mind for days when there is simply too much zucchini in the house. / Though we love banana & chocolate chip pancakes or waffles, this recipe seemed a bit heavy for our taste...., *****but then again****, we might need to give them a second chance, since my family made these up for me on my teaching night...., and they used baking soda instead of powder - and yes, we made them as pancakes since that was easier for them (yes, we could taste the baking soda a tad more than I'd like, but overall, the flavor was nice in spite of the error). Will try to post a follow up if we try these again with baking powder. I am definitely saving this recipe, even though I'm not sure it's a high priority to want to eat these again, but mostly because it's a nice alternative for using up zucchini. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and it was great. My family loved it. My only change would be a little more cinnamon. I will definitely be making this recipe again! Read More

If you like zucchini bread you should like these waffles. The batter is thick but that may be because I like to soak the oats in the milk to soften before adding the rest of the ingredients. With the abundance of zucchini in the garden this is a good option. Read More

I didn't have whole wheat flour so I used a combo of oats rice and coconut flour. 1tsp Stevia instead of brown sugar. Oh and almond milk. Which goes to show how versatile this recipe is! Read More

I made this a healthier vegan option with flax eggs rice milk and applesauce instead of butter. I doubt that those small subs would change the consistency a lot but this was a particularly dry thick batter. I had to add probably an extra cup of milk to the batter and still they never cooked all the way through. Not sure if I will make again. They tasted great even if not fully cooked but they seem to need something probably another baking agent like soda maybe? Might keep experimenting... Read More
