Homemade oatmeal waffles with strawberry syrup

Dr Eva says that "It just shows how you can make healthy food that is super tasty.” Note: You will need a waffle maker!


  • 1 medium egg
  • 150 ml milk
  • 1 tblsp honey
  • 1 tblsp groundnut oil
  • 0.25 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g banana (peeled weight)
  • 110 g white flour
  • 50 g porridge oats
  • 0.50 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 0.50 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 0.50 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tblsp water
  • 3 tblsp low-calorie sweetener
  • 300 g strawberries
  • light spray oil


  1. Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk together with the milk, honey, oil and vanilla extract.
  2. Peel and mash the banana and blend together with the egg/milk mixture. You may need to use a hand blender.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, blending them all the time.
  4. Do this until you have created a smooth mixture. Heat the waffle maker to a medium heat (I use a Cuisinart waffle maker set at level 3) and spray some light spray oil on it.
  5. Pour the waffle mixture into the centre of the grid and spread it out evenly until it completely covers the lower grid. Close down the lid and allow to cook.
  6. Leave for about 4 minutes (or until your machine beeps to indicate it’s ready). In the meantime, wash some strawberries and chop into small pieces.
  7. Add to a pot with the low-calorie sweetener and the water. Place on a medium heat and stir continuously until the strawberries melt and the juice creates a syrup. When the waffles are ready, serve on a plate and top with the strawberry syrup.


Although this is quite a bit of work for 4 waffles, it is better to make this recipe in small quantities as the waffles taste best when they are warm and fresh.
