Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Waffles

Just received a text that Cali is safe and sound in England!   For those of you who know Cali and may want to follow her London adventures she has started a blog.  This is my child who said they would never have a blog!  She gave in!  The blog is still under construction (we are adding some pretty touches of course) but her first post is up.  Check it out here.

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!

Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Waffles
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 C old fashioned oats

  5. Pour in about ½ cup batter and cook until brown and crisp.

On my trip to Utah this last week for graduation I made a quick trip to the Women’s Expo that was going on.  It was fun to see my friends Kris and Kim from the DIY Dish!  I took them a little gift – two of my reuseable grocery bags (Watch my etsy shop for new bags that will be added to the shop later this week)

    It was so fun to meet you Leigh Anne! I just checked your cute Cali’s blog. Look’s like she’s following right in her mother’s footsteps. :)

    i have an odd question, you wear a lot of navy, do you have a hard time finding shoes? i can never find something to go with navy! i commented on your college post how much i love your clothes!

      I do wear navy – I recently discovered that I should not wear black so I have switched to navy and brown. I have a friend who is a stylist and she did my colors and informed me of that! I have a closet full of black!

      Navy shoes are impossible to find – I have tried. I really like wearing colored shoes so instead of navy I shoes I wear burgundy, gray, silver and even yellow with navy outfits. My daughter is starting a fashion blog and maybe I’ll do a few fashion posts over there!

    You are one busy woman!!!! What a fun month for you. It’s fun to see the picture of you and Kris and Kim. I know they say they aren’t related to the Osmonds but I really think they have to be related to Olive Osmond somehow, somewhere….long, long ago perhaps. Betcha!
    I checked out Cali’s new blog. She’s so cute. Love how she writes! I can tell she is going to have so much fun there. I’ll be following her on her blog.

    I loved checking out Cali’s blog! She will have a wonderful adventure. My granddaughter Jordan did BYU study abroad in London last summer and was able to go to so many plays, concerts, etc. There was even an unexpected weekend in Paris with several girls.
    My Dad taught at the BYU London location years ago and I was able to visit him there, on my first trip to London. It was special to know that Jordan was staying at the very same location.
