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!
- 1 C whole wheat flour
- 1 C old fashioned oats
- 1 Tbsp and 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 Tbsp sugar or honey
- 3 Tbsp canola oil
- 1¼ C buttermilk
- ½ C water
- 1 egg
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Whisk together wet ingredients.
- Pour wet into dry and stir until combined.
- Heat waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray.
- 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)
I also got to meet Kara of Kara’s Kitchen Creation. I have enjoyed her blog and recipes for sometime and it was fun to meet her in person!
A fun graduation post coming!
