Okay- I know it’s not Sunday today but I promised our dear friend Jeff that I would post these waffles a while back and I am just getting to it. Jeff is an amazing chef and caterer so when he wants a recipe you know it’s worth making.
Every Sunday, Rick makes these wonderful oatmeal waffles for me. We enjoy them then with real maple syrup, sausage and lattes.
He, thankfully, makes extra and so we can have them again later in the week- either covered with Brown Cow Cherry Vanilla yogurt or I make an almond butter and honey sandwich with them right before I head out the door to work. You can cut some strawberries or other fruit and layer them in there too. It’s a quick and relatively healthy breakfast with all natural ingredients.
- 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1-1/4 cups water
- 3 Tablespoons butter, in bits
- 1-1/4 cups AP flour (Spelt flour works great too)
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
Combine the oats and 1-1/4 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat stirring constantly for three minutes. Add butter, remove from heat and stir until the butter is melted in. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt into a small mixing bowl. In a medium mixing bowl beat the eggs and combine with the buttermilk. Add the oatmeal and stir to combine. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until blended- do not over-mix. Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacterer’s directions. Run a little butter over the plates and fill with the amount appropriate to your waffle maker’s size. Cook until crisp on the outside tender on the inside. Serve with maple syrup, yogurt, preserves or almond butter, fruit and honey- however you like them. 🙂
Makes eight 4-inch waffles. If you have some left over- store in the fridge (or the freezer if you’re not using within a day or two.) Reheat them in the toaster or on a rack in the oven. I even like them straight from the fridge.
Hope you enjoy and sorry to Jeff for taking so long….
