I found this recipe in my Oat Cuisine cookbook. I accidently mixed up two recipes and the end result was a spicer waffle. These waffles freeze well and can be reheated in a toaster oven. These are also good topped with sweetened fresh strawberries and then sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar.
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 1⁄4 cup whole wheat flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 4 cups skim milk
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- The night before: Combine oats, flour, baking powder, and spices.
- Mix well.
- Add remaining ingredients and mix until moistened.
- Cover and chill overnight.
- In the morning: Spray waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray and preheat according to manufacturer's directions.
- Stir batter (it will be thick).
- Spoon batter onto center of hot waffle iron and bake 4 to 6 minutes.
- (I use a Belgian Waffle Maker.) Spray the waffle iron before making each waffle.
- Serve with fresh fruit and vanilla yogurt or maple syrup.
These are my new PERFECT waffle recipie. Granted they are nothing like light and fluffy texture you get with a whipped egg white recipie - BUT I love the texture of oatmeal and I love the crunchy texture. Most of mine were eaten out of the freezer and the reheated perfectly in the toaster. Prep couldn't have been easier done the night before. Try it.
Thanks for this recipe Paula, it's really great! I made this using whole milk, and added in a couple teaspoons sugar, I actually made them and froze most of them to use for another time. thanks, Kitten:)
This recipe deserves 5 stars for health and ease of preparation, but 4 stars for texture and palatability. My DH and I felt that the oats were too "crunchy" and not blended very well. I used regular rolled oats, not the quick variety. Perhaps if I had given them a buzz in the processor to cut them up a bit, they would have softened better. We did like the cinnamon and spices that flavored these waffles, so perhaps I'll try this recipe again and flake up those oats a bit before making the batter. The only substitution I made was to use non-dairy rice dream instead of skim milk, otherwise all ingredients were the same. Thanks for posting such a healthy recipe Paula.
