Tools Used to Make Hearty Oatmeal-Cinnamon Waffles

Spring whiskmy favorite kitchen tool to use for whisking eggs

Mesh strainer: to ensure there are no lumps in your waffle mix

Griddle or Waffle Iron: use the griddle for pancakes and the waffle iron for good quality waffles

Hearty Oatmeal-Cinnamon Waffles Recipe

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.

    Interesting. Never made oatmeal waffles. I eat powdered sugar and butter, or strawberries and sauce on my waffles. Thank you for sharing.

    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!

    My children really want us to get a waffle maker! When we finally do, every batch of waffles will have a hefty dose of cinnamon. It makes everything taste better!
