Honey Oatmeal Waffles


I love waffles. In college, if you wanted a truly warm dinner (instead of the usual lukewarm,) your best option was to make yourself a waffle in one of the dining halls’ Belgian waffle irons, and in the winter I lived off them. It’s warm here, but these are still comfort food. You can find the original recipe for these here.

Ingredients

1 cup oats

1-1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

2 eggs, separated

1-1/2 cups milk

4 T butter, melted

3 T honey

Make Em

Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread oats in pan, baking for ten minutes (tossing occasionally) to toast the oats. Turn off the oven and let the oats cool, then pulse in a food processor until ground to a powder.

Preheat your waffle iron. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, mixing well. Mix in egg yolks, milk, butter, and honey. Gently fold in egg whites. Pour 3/4 cup at a time into your waffle iron– these waffles are fluffy, and if you leave them in the iron for a while, they get crispy on the outside and soft within. Serve with honey and bananas.
