This recipe didn't work for me at all. As br2brown, I added some extra flour for the waffle maker, but it really stuck up good. Fortunately there was some batter left to make into pancakes, which I would rate only as fair.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour boiling water over oats; stir to moisten.
  2. Add oil, egg, and 1 cup skim milk.
  3. Stir.
  4. Mix together salt, flour, Splenda (or sugar) and baking powder.
  5. Add to oatmeal mixture and stir.
  6. Add enough remaining skim milk (3/4 to 1-1/4 cups) to make a medium thick batter (for waffles) or a thinner batter (for pancakes).
  7. Make 4-5 inch pancakes on hot griddle, letting them brown a little (about 2-4 minutes) or waffles in waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  8. NOTE: Batter is best if covered, refrigerated and left to sit overnight, but can be used immediately with very good results.
