Quick Post: I love using oats whenever I can, and the kids don’t seem to mind! I made these at night, cooled them completely, bagged ’em, tagged ’em, and then stored them in the freezer. In the morning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake these for 6 -8 minutes. It’s a quick, no-brainer (who wants to think in the morning) breakfast that my kids and I enjoy. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
Oat Waffle – adapted from Food Network
- 5 1/2 ounces old fashioned rolled oats
- 4 ounces all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 16 ounces buttermilk at room temperature
Heat a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat. Add the oats and cook, stirring occasionally, until toasted, about 3 minutes. Cool the oats in the pan for 2 to 3 minutes. Grind the toasted oats in a food processor until the consistency of whole-wheat flour, about 3 minutes.
Heat a waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
Whisk together the toasted oat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Whisk the eggs and melted butter together in another bowl, then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Rest the batter for 5 minutes. Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter into the hot iron. Close the iron top and cook until the waffle is golden on both sides and is easily removed from the iron. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately or keep warm in a preheated 200 degree F oven until ready to serve.
