Easy, healthy whole wheat oatmeal waffles Yield:
4-6 servings Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup quick oats
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons oil
Syrup, jam, butter, fresh fruit, or whipped cream, for serving Instructions:
1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, and baking powder.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk milk, oil, and eggs. Add to flour mixture and whisk briskly to combine. Let batter set for 5-10 minutes to thicken slightly.
3. Pre-heat waffle maker. Spray hot grids lightly with oil. Spoon waffle batter over grid and close lid.
4. Cook until done (mine took about 4 minutes for Belgian-style waffles). I like to set a timer so I don’t have to keep checking, or risk forgetting to take the waffles out on time! Open waffle maker lid carefully by jiggling to loosen the waffles as you open the lid. Remove cooked waffles with fork.
If necessary, spray grid lightly with oil before cooking more batter.
Serve hot fresh waffles with syrup, butter, jam, whipped cream, or fresh fruit. We love ours with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries!
