Vegan Oat Waffles with Apple Pear Compote

In the United States, waffles are quite an important part of having breakfast. In Germany, we only bake waffles on special occasions, for example, when family and friends are visiting us for a Sunday brunch. But the smell of fresh waffles always reminds us that we should bake waffles more often. So we created a simple and quick recipe for breakfast waffles that you can prepare in a few minutes and top according to the season!

In addition to sugar and cinnamon, powdered sugar, or chocolate cream, you can also serve the waffles with a homemade fruit compote and nuts. Over the cold season, however, we only have a limited selection of fruits for the compote. We used apples and pears that are stored in winter and are therefore still available from regional farmers. In spring, you can top the waffles with a rhubarb compote, in summer with a cherry compote or in autumn with a plum compote.

We are super happy that Kölln supported us with this recipe. Instead of using rolled oats, we used instant flakes for our oat waffles. These are instantly soluble, so you won't notice them later in the dough, except for the taste. The instant flakes are creating a wonderfully fluffy and crispy dough at the same time and consist of 100 % whole grain. We also used the oat drink from Kölln in the recipe, which works perfectly!
