Clean Eating Oatmeal Waffles
Katie: This recipe was adapted from one given to me by my dear friend, Andrea. Thank you, dear! These are wonderful for a lazy Saturday morning with the fam. Have some waffles, stay in your PJs all day. It's the weekend..why not?
**If you want to go "uber healthy," you can use almond milk instead. (Probably better for cancer patients).
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (Whole Foods, bulk section)
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (Whole Foods or in bulk from Amazon)*
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch fine salt
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cup milk**
1/4 cup butter, melted on defrost and cooled
1/4 cup extra light tasting olive oil (or canola oil)
Preheat waffle iron to medium-high.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt), and set aside. In another bowl, stir together melted butter, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla.
Pour 1/2 cup of batter into waffle iron. Bake for about 10 minutes. (Even after mine beeps, I hit it for another 5 minutes or so). You want them nice and brown on the outside, and cooked through inside.
Serve with fruit and drizzle with raw honey. (For a tasty variation, top with bananas and toasted pecans. Yum).
Makes 8 Belgian waffle squares
