  • waffle maker


  • ¾ cup plain, full-fat or 2% Skyr or Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (I like oat, coconut, or hemp)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup canola or grapeseed oil (or melted butter or coconut oil)
  • 1 cup oat flour (make sure certified gluten-free if needed)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Topping Suggestions

  • fresh berries
  • powdered sugar
  • jam or applesauce
  • whipped cream


  • Preheat waffle maker. (For this recipe I use a European-style, thin waffle maker; I have not tested it on a Belgian waffle maker).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, milk, eggs, and oil or melted butter.
  • In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: oat flour, coconut flour, flax meal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and stir until blended.
  • Ladle into waffle maker according to waffle maker instructions. (Mine takes ⅓ cup at a time).
  • When a waffle is ready, transfer it to a wire cookie rack before serving. Enjoy!


Try adding a teaspoon of cardamom to the batter to make these a really Nordic-inspired creation!
