In my continuing quest to integrate more whole grains into my family’s diet (remember those oatmeal pancakes?) we have been enjoying these yummy whole wheat and oatmeal waffles at our house for breakfast and dinner.
They freeze really well so be sure and put any leftover waffles into the freezer for a quick and easy, last minute breakfast or snack. Just pop them into the toaster and you are good to go!
We enjoyed them with maple syrup and strawberries but they would be yummy with jam or just plain butter.
Made exclusively with whole wheat flour and old fashioned oatmeal you would expect a heavy and dense waffle but they aren’t – they make a nice crisp, light waffle.
Another fun trick we like to use with our waffles is to fry up some bacon and break into pieces and then add that to the waffler batter – so good!
