Waffles

I just made a batch of these today. They are sooooooo good! And healthy too! The only thing I don't like is my waffle maker - they make such thin waffles! I need to get a new one. One of those Belgian waffle makers with big and deep grooves that can hold puddles of syrup and melted butter.

 

The recipe I used was originally for pancakes. I reduced the liquid to make this suitable for waffles and then sprinkled some pumpkin seeds [can't see in this pic though] after pouring the batter in the maker.

 

The recipe to make waffles:

 

Copycat IHOP Harvest Grain & Nut Pancakes/Waffles

 

¾ cup oats, grind to fine flour consistency

¾ cup Whole wheat pastry flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1 cup buttermilk [I used 1 cup skim milk mixed with juice of 1 lemon]

¼ cup canola oil

1 egg

¼ cup sugar [I used Splenda]

3 Tbsp. finely chopped blanched almonds [I used pumpkin seeds]

3 Tbsp. finely chopped walnuts

 

1. Preheat waffle maker and lightly oil / spray the grids of the waffle maker.

2. Grind the oats in a blender or food processor until fine, like flour.

3. Combine ground oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

4. In another bowl combine buttermilk, oil, egg and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.

5. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients, add nuts [optional], and mix well with mixer.

6. Ladle enough of the batter onto the hot waffle maker and cook for 2 to 4 minutes.

 

Waffles can be frozen and toasted later.
