We have waffles at least twice a week. I already have 3 waffle recipes on the site – my go-to perfect whole wheat freezer waffles, quinoa flake whole wheat waffles, and healthy chocolate flaxseed waffles. And this recipe has definitely earned the right to join the waffle family!
I am always looking for ways to get more fiber into my crew. I was concerned adding oatmeal to the waffles would make them too chewy/grainy – just completely throw it off. Was SO wrong. They slip right in there, adding a little heft to the waffle and a lovely boost of fiber. The kids devoured them – and also made them. The batter was so easy, all stuff we always have around, and came together in a flash.
I must recommend giving these a whirl. I had to cut myself off from eating any more.
Modified slightly from this Taste of Home recipe: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/family-favorite-oatmeal-waffles
- 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup classic oats (not quick cooking)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- Heat your waffle iron up. Whisk together flour, oats, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and brown sugar. Combine to the two, stirring until all the flour as been absorbed.
- I used a 1/2 cup of batter for each of our waffles.
- Serve with butter and real maple syrup!!
