Wholesome, Easy and Delicious Oat Waffles
I don't know about you but I love waffles. When I decided to cut out refined flour in my diet it hurt. Then after a while I decided to experiment with Oats and making my own flour.
I am loving the quick steel cut oats and the fact that I can pick up a huge back at Costco is just awesome really! I love the steel cut quick oats because I eat them at least 5 times a week! Of course I mix it up a bit. I mostly cook them for oatmeal most mornings, or I like to add an overnight oats dish once a week and alternate waffles or pancakes once a week. Anytime I make pancakes or waffles, I just grind the oats as needed. Wholesome, healthy and delicious.
I love to top my waffles with all the in season fruits mostly. Peaches are still in season though done shortly. They are great fresh and mixed with berries. My kids love apple season, which has just begun. They love when I slice apples thick, melt about a tablespoon of butter and add about a tablespoon or so of maple flakes (you can use brown sugar too). Toss in the apples, cook over medium heat until softened slightly. You can double up on the butter/sugar for more syrup but I like to take it easy on the sugar intake and the maple flakes being more natural is my first choice.
With my waffle maker I usually get around 5 waffles. When there is extra I freeze them and use during the week. When frozen you can reheat in toaster until warmed and thawed through. Pretty fancy breakfast for during the week but they are tasty and have pretty good ingredients especially when paired with fruit!
We enjoy these oat waffles often at our house and I hope you enjoy them too!
