Hearty Oatmeal-Cinnamon Waffles

Hearty Oatmeal Cinnamon Waffles: BrownThumbMama.com

These tasty waffles are made with healthy ingredients, and they’re hearty enough to fill up a 7-year-old Bottomless Pit! (Where does he put all that food he eats, anyway?)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1 3/4 cups flour (white or whole wheat)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. brown sugar (storebought or homemade)
2 cups rolled oats

In a large bowl, melt the butter and stir it a bit so it’s not too hot. Whisk in the eggs after the butter is cool so you don’t accidentally scramble your eggs.

That whisk-a-ma-jigger is called a spring whisk, and it’s my favorite for whisking eggs.

Add in the milk and continue to mix.

The flour comes next. Put it into a strainer or flour sifter, and tap gently against the side of the bowl.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is why we sift. Flour lumps are the diametric opposite of good eats.

Push them through with your fingers until the lumps are broken up.

Add the baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Stir gently until the dry ingredients are incorporated.

Pour in the oats and mix, mix, mix. Mmmm, can you smell the cinnamon?

Scoop the batter onto your waffle iron (or griddle if you’re making pancakes) and cook until toasty brown and delicious.

    We’ve been on a french toast kick lately, but this would make for a perfect Sunday breakfast. We have syrup on our waffles. Thanks for sharing this over on Tuesday Greens!
