Granola Butter Waffles!

These were so yummy and fun!!

I’m a huge fan of Oat Haus Granola Butter, their products are so delicious. They are basically spreadable granolas in a bunch of different flavors. This time I used their brownie batter and red velvet flavors. But you can use absolutely any flavor!

  • 4 TB butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Large pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup milk, I used almond
  • 1 egg
  • 4 TB granola butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat waffle iron.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.

In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, egg, granola butter and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold just to combine. Fold in the melted and cooled butter just until combined.

Cook the waffles and serve with granola butter, bananas, maple syrup and Coconut Cult vanilla yogurt!!
