Oatmeal Waffles made with whole wheat flour are a great way to start the day off with a delicious and healthy breakfast.
I am on a continuous quest to integrate more whole grains into my family’s diet. From that desire, these delicious, healthy and filling oatmeal waffles were created! We have been enjoying these yummy whole wheat and oatmeal waffles at our house for breakfast and dinner.
Remember my oatmeal pancake recipe? My family loved them and they were the inspiration for these oatmeal waffles. We enjoy our oatmeal waffles with real maple syrup and strawberries, but they are also yummy with butter, jam, or your favorite waffle topping.
Another waffle trick we love is to fry up some bacon and break into pieces. Then add that right into the waffler batter. So delicious!
This recipe freezes really well, so I love to make them for dinner and double the batch. Then I put the leftover waffles into the freezer for us to enjoy for breakfast. They are perfect to grab on a morning when you are short on time and need something quick and easy. Just pop them into the toaster and you are good to go! All you have to do is add some maple syrup.
Made exclusively with whole wheat flour and old fashioned oatmeal, you might expect a heavy and dense waffle. But this recipe makes nice crisp and light waffles.
