Nothing says “weekend morning” like a hot, maple syrup-y waffle. Especially with all this snow outside, I am perfectly content to take my time fixing breakfast and relaxing with my omnipresent cup of strong coffee.
And let me tell you, with a recipe like this you should be doing exactly the same right about now.
What I love about these waffles is that (honest!) they actually fill you up (and I even used white flour). The hearty oats provide some texture while the flax and cinnamon lend interest to each bite.
Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles
Original Recipe can be found at Everybody Likes Sandwiches
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 tbsp ground flax
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup yogurt
1/3 cup milk
1 tbsp applesauce
1 tbsp melted butter
oil, if needed, for waffle iron
Combine flour, salt, baking powder, oats, flax, cinnamon and brown sugar in a large bowl. In a seperate bowl mix all of the wet ingredients. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture until everything is just combined. Makes 3-4 waffles, depending on the size of your iron.
I found that my batter was quite thick- if you want something more spreadable, I would suggest increasing the amount of milk.
With maple syrup and blueberry jelly this was a perfect breakfast.
