Honey Oat Waffles

Ok, I love breakfast foods. Not necessarily at breakfast time, but that's not the point. The point is, that many of these luscious concoctions are not great for you. They can also take a long time to prepare. To fix the time issue, I periodically prepare a bunch of waffles or pancakes, let them cool completely and then pop them in the freezer. All you have to do on a busy morning is put them in the toaster, just like those store-bought ones. Unlike the store-bought ones, though, these are very yummy and not so terrible for you. They don't have much sugar in them and they are packed with fiber. So eat up! Within reason, of course. I'm not promoting them as weight-loss waffle or anything...

Honey Oat Waffles
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • water, to thin if necessary
  • In a large bowl, mix eggs and buttermilk. Add oats, stir well and let sit for 10 minutes (if using quick-cooking oats, it's not necessary to let it sit)
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Pour about 3/4 cup into a prepared waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
These are yummy with maple syrup, drizzled with more honey or topped with fruit. Enjoy!
