I came across this recipe on a website for healthier eating, Eat Better America. It looked like a good way to get the kids to try something healthy that they would actually like, though I haven't tried it yet. It looks easy to put together, which is always at the top of my list. Top these hearty waffles with pure maple syrup and additional blueberries for a sensational brunch dish!
- 3⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups nonfat milk (skim)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup frozen organic blueberries, thawed, drained
- Lightly spray waffle iron with cooking spray; heat waffle iron. In large bowl, stir together flours, oats, baking powder and sugar. In small bowl, stir together milk, oil and egg. Stir into dry ingredients in large bowl, stirring just until large lumps disappear. Gently stir in blueberries.
- Pour slightly less than 1 cup batter onto center of hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. (Check manufacturer's directions for recommended amount of batter.) Close lid of waffle iron.
- Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until waffle is golden brown. Carefully remove waffle. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining batter.
Excellent, easy waffles! I love a healthy breakfast like this that doesn't remind me of straw and sticks. The oats gave a slightly chewy texture and with the berries, it had the perfect sweetness. We will enjoy these many times! Thanks for sharing.
