Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: About 6-7 waffles
  • 1½ cups oat flour
  • 1½ cups buckwheat flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 1½ cups buttermilk, at room temperature
  • For the Rhubarb Compote:
  • Rhubarb (or fruit of choice like strawberries, apricots, plums, apples, etc)
  • 3 cups diced rhubarb (or fruit of choice)
  • ¾ cup cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • For the Vanilla Cream:
  • 1 cup chilled whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (paste is recommended for a stronger, superior flavor and the visible vanilla flecks)
  1. To make the Rhubarb Compote:
  2. Place the diced fruit in a medium saucepan with the sugar and water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the fruit is soft and the mixture has thickened.
  3. To make the Vanilla Cream:
  4. Place the chilled whipping cream and sugar in a medium-sized mixing bowl and beat on high until it begins to thicken. Add the vanilla paste and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. *See NOTE
  5. To make the Oat & Buckwheat Waffles:
  6. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, vanilla paste, butter and coconut oil until combined. Whisk in the buttermilk. Work quickly to prevent the coconut oil from solidifying.
  8. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in two batches, whisking just until combined (do not over-mix). Let the batter sit for 10 minutes. In the meantime preheat the waffle maker.
  9. Follow the instructions on your waffle maker and cook until the waffles are golden brown. To maintain their outer crispiness, serve immediately. (While the remaining waffles are being cooked you can keep the finished ones, single layer, in the oven at 200 degrees F.)
  10. Serve the waffles whole or cut into segments topped with some rhubarb compote and a vanilla cream. If desired, garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
  11. NOTE: Feel free to omit the rhubarb compote and cream. These are some of our favorite go-to waffles and they're also perfect served with your favorite syrup.
*The Rhubarb Compote can be made several days in advance and stored in the fridge.
*The Vanilla Cream can be made up to a day ahead and stored in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. If the liquid separates from the cream beat it again until thick.
