The combination of oatmeal and whole wheat makes these oatmeal waffles very nutritious. They taste especially good topped with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
These waffles make a lovely presentation for brunch, but no one will tell if you prefer to eat them for lunch or dinner instead.
The recipe for these oatmeal waffles is from Wholesome Sugarfree Cooking by Ray and Malinda Yutzy.
The recipe works well for pancakes as well.
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups Buttermilk* (I used sour milk)
- 1 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
*Note: If buttermilk is not available, a good substitute is to mix 1 cup sweet milk and 1 cup plain yogurt. Or use 2 cups sour milk.
In a large bowl, mix eggs and buttermilk. Add oats and mix well. Stir in molasses and oil. Combine flour, salt, soda, and baking powder. Stir into egg mixture. If batter is too thick, thin with a little milk.
Pour 2/3 to 3/4 cup of batter into the middle of the preheated waffle baker. Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until a deep golden brown.
Enjoy these oatmeal waffles with some fresh berries for a wholesome breakfast or brunch (or even dinner if you like)! They also taste good drizzled with real maple syrup.
Now go make some for yourself!
