I think that Saturday mornings were made for big, tasty breakfasts. I love sleeping in and taking my time making a special breakfast. The texture of food is almost as important to me as the flavor, so I love waffles! These Oatmeal Waffles are a heartier version of the classic waffles.
Confession: I usually make pancakes and waffles using a mix. Honestly, I thought it was a lot more complicated to make it from scratch. Then, I found this recipe from Butter, with a side of Bread, and realized it wasn’t that hard at all! I really liked the oatmeal in them, too. I’ve been on a bit of an oatmeal kick lately and even added to a smoothie.
Here’s the recipe:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
6 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
2. In a separate small bowl, beat the eggs and add milk, butter and brown sugar.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Let stand for 15 minutes.
4. Bake in a waffle iron until golden brown.
