I used skim milk rather than the water, ground the oats after measuring, used whole wheat flour and olive oil. Very good smothered in apple sauce!

Man, I thought these were delicious! I followed the recipe exactly (no apples). I tried three toppings: Strawberry jam w/sprinkle of confectioner's sugar(best), smothered in apple sauce (yummy!), and maple-flavored syrup (not so hot).

Oh my goodness these are amazing!!! I hate the texture of oatmeal but I keep looking for ways to eat more of its healthy goodness. These are filling and delicious! I added a bit more water than it called for and let the batter soak for a few minutes before dropping the batter on the griddle. This softens the oats a bit before cooking and gives them a great texture.

Wildheart! These are lovely, VERY hearty pancakes. I often shirk from traditional pancake recipes, as I have to eat quite a few to fill up. These are like a hot bowl of oatmeal, in disguise of a pancake - awesome! I'm going to add some spices, like ginger and cinnamon and see how they turn out. I'll be passing this recipe along to my diabetic mom. Thanks!

I have made these several times in the past couple of years. We love trying new kinds of grains to help keep our diet healthier and this really fits in well with us. To make the waffles lighter I put the oatmeal in the blender to make it finer, before mixing up the mix. Served with fresh fruit and sauce with whipped cream these taste more like dessert than breakfast, but no complaints here! Thanks - Dave

I loved this recipe!! I always thought you needed milk, not water, for waffles-but it worked out fine! I cut the recipe by a quarter & used 1/2 cup rolled oats (that made one big waffle-perfect for a one person meal), sugar free syrup for the molasses, applesauce for the oil, no salt & added 1 tsp cinnamon & 1/4 tsp vanilla. I also only used 1/2 tsp baking powder-which worked fine. I used my immersion blender to make it as smooth as possible-it's probably not as great as a food processor but it does the job well enough for me! I love this smeared with natural peanut butter, sliced bananas & sugar free syrup. Delicious!!

this came out pretty good. I used those instant oatmeal packets (with maple brown sugar flavor) and it was great. Also subbed half-and-half for water, so that might have helped too.

These should be called Super Easy Oatmeal Waffles. My family really likes these. I made them for my daughter's birthday breakfast w/ out the cinn. & apple, but topped them with goat cheese and stawberries. They were delicious. I have since made them with the apples and cinnamon, and they were good, but a little wetter texture. The best part of all though is that this batter is thick enough that it doesn't run all over my waffle maker, which makes clean up a breeze! Thanks! ** I use old fashioned rolled oats, and give them a whirl in the food processor until they are in fine bits, almost a coarse flour.

Wonderful waffles! I halved the recipe, too, but wish I hadn't. DH and I each wanted another one! The molasses added the perfect touch of sweetness and gave the waffles that healthy, brown "glow". **Now that I look again at the recipe, I forgot the egg! Apparently, it wasn't needed! I also used canola oil, a healthier oil, in place of the corn oil. Thanks, wildheart!

These are very tasty! BUT... we had to add a lot more water - probably about 1/2 cup more. And it didn't make anywhere near 10 waffles. More like 3.5 waffles. So make sure to double the recipe. But very delicious!
