Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Waffles

In my continuing quest to integrate more whole grains into my family’s diet (remember those oatmeal pancakes?) we have been enjoying these yummy whole wheat and oatmeal waffles at our house for breakfast and dinner.

healthy waffles

They freeze really well so be sure and put any leftover waffles into the freezer for a quick and easy, last minute breakfast or snack.  Just pop them into the toaster and you are good to go!

We enjoyed them with maple syrup and strawberries but they would be yummy with jam or just plain butter.

Made exclusively with whole wheat flour and old fashioned oatmeal you would expect a heavy and dense waffle but they aren’t – they make a nice crisp, light waffle.

Another fun trick we like to use with our waffles is to fry up some bacon and break into pieces and then add that to the waffler batter  – so good!

Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Waffles

1 C whole wheat flour

1 C old fashioned oats

1 Tbsp and 1 tsp baking powder

3 Tbsp sugar or honey

3 Tbsp canola oil

1 1/4 C buttermilk

1/2 C water

1 egg

Combine dry ingredients.  Whisk together wet ingredients.  Pour wet into dry and stir until combined.  Heat waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray.  Pour in about 1/2 cup batter and cook until brown and crisp.

Enjoy these healthy waffles!

    Greetings. I think there’s something incorrect with your links. I hope you’ll be able to fix it!

    I just wanted to leave a comment since it seems like all of them are bad…

    I don’t know why others had issues but I have made these 3 times now and they have turned out lovely each time. The first time I made as is. The second I opted for coconut oil. (I am trying to convert to using other oils only for non-cooked food.) The third time I opted for no sugar, but added chocolate chips and cinnamon. They are still very tasty, crispy, and still so easy!

    This is my new go-to recipe and it works great for experimenting with different minor adjustments!

    Oh, I was so excited but these did not work for me either. I had the same problem as the other reviewer– mine split down the middle every time I opened them, even with copious amounts of grease on the waffle iron. It would burn on the outsides and split, raw, between the top and bottom iron when opened. I surmised this is because the iron is too hot for the oats to fully have time to cook up. We made pancakes out of the batter instead.

    I tried the recipe but it didn't work for me. Whenever I open my waffle iron up (after the light goes out), the waffles split down the center and stick to both irons. Any ideas?
