eat well | whole wheat + oat waffles

Let us introduce you to the perfect breakfast for your holiday guests (we also keep an extra stash in our freezer for busy weekdays). We may even suggest they are our favorite waffles, period. ever. They are light and moist on the inside, crispy on the outside. It may take some convincing that they are whole wheat. Adapted from Grampy Geoff Haven's Whole Wheat Waffles. Martha Stewart does it again.

light as air whole wheat + oat waffles |

1 1/2 C whole wheat flour

1 C oats, ground

1 t cinnamon

1/4 t nutmeg

1 T baking powder

1/4 t salt

4 eggs

2 C milk

1/4 C olive oil

1 t vanilla

3 T honey

1 | Preheat waffle iron. Whisk together together flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.

2 | In a large bowl, whisk together oil and honey. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla; whisk well to combine. Add flour mixture and stir to combine; it should be easily pourable, so add a little more milk if it seems too thick.

3 | Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 1/4-1/2 cup batter into the center of iron. Cook until golden brown. Repeat. Serve immediately with pure maple syrup and fresh blueberries. Enjoy. Repeat.
