Oat Waffles




This recipe has a kind of hearty, nutty flavor to it. It is vegan, dairy free and really great for a yeast free diet that has to restrict fruit. It is easy and can even be used for pancakes. I usually just make waffles and lots of them, so I can have lots in the freezer for a quick snack or breakfast.

Oat Waffles          Makes about 3-4 waffles
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup Oat Bran
2 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Tbl oil (I don't use any oil)
1/4 cup walnuts or pecans (chopped), optional. I don't add nuts.

Mix all ingredients in a blender. Scrape the sides of the blender a couple times with a spatula if necessary. (please turn off first)  Let sit for about 5 minutes. Spray waffle iron with Pam before heating. Pour 1 cup at a time in hot waffle iron. Cook 11 to 12 minutes. Times may vary. Waffle will be firm to the touch when done, but will remain a pale color. Remove with a fork and serve with some Pure Maple Syrup, fruit or nut butter and enjoy.

Note: Batter will thicken as it sits. Add small amounts of water as necessary for easy pouring, this will not effect the outcome of the waffles.

I freeze extra waffles in freezer bags with wax paper in between each waffle. About 3 whole waffles per freezer bag. Then just pop in the toaster in the morning or when a snack craving hits.

Or use this recipe for pancakes.  Either way I think you will find it a favorite.
