waffle addiction

I love waffles.  They're thick and utterly tasty.  And of course, full of squares!  As an elderly gentleman dining at the restaurant where I work put it, "Waffles are just funner to eat than pancakes."  And I have to admit.  He's totally right.

I've recipe-hopped quite a bit trying to find a good waffle recipe.  I'm a little picky.  I want my waffles to be thick, yummy, and healthy.  Something I can make a bunch of in the morning and not feel bad about snacking on throughout the day.  All of the recipes I have tried are basically great, but don't quite fit all the criteria.  So I melded a few of the ingredients and created my own recipe.  The best part is that most of the ingredients I guarantee you'll already have in your cupboards.
Hark!  Becka's Waffle recipe:


1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cups whole oats (uncrushed)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 & 2/3 - 2 cups buttermilk or low-fat milk
2 eggs
2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs brown sugar (optional)

Mix dry ingredients.  Add milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla.  Blend.  Iron.

Tada!  So easy.  It makes about 9 - 10 of these nifty square sizes.  Feel free to get creative and add extra ingredients such as little blueberries, craisins, or chocolate chips.  As a heads up, the waffles really aren't that sweet, hence the optional brown sugar.  But then again, if you will be adding something sugary on top, no worries.

I like mine plain.
