Freezer-Friendly Oatmeal Waffles
Servings: 5 Belgian-style waffles
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup ground rolled oats (aka old fashioned oats; measured after grinding them in the blender)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup canola, light olive or coconut oil
1. Preheat waffle maker.
2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and gently mix with a whisk to combine.
3. In a medium bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk well.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk just until the batter comes together and the ingredients are combined. Do not over-whisk.
5. Make the waffles according to your waffle-maker's instructions. You can also make these into pancakes.
6. To freeze, let the waffles cool completely, divide into quarters if using a Belgian waffle maker or into single-sized waffles from a regular waffle maker. Place a layer of waffles in a freezer bag, then top with a layer of parchment paper and add the remaining waffles on top.
7. Freeze until ready to eat, then heat in the microwave or toaster to serve.
To make the ground oats, add slightly more than 1/2 cup of oats to a blender or food processor, and pulse until a course, flour-like texture forms. Remove from the blender and measure out 1/2 cup for the recipe.
