Quick and Easy Oat Waffles

While Fenner is down for his second nap of that day, score for mom, I figured I would write a quick post about the simple and YUMMY breakfast we had this morning! I really had a craving for waffles, but was feeling a bit lazy and didn’t want to do too much work.  I stumbled upon a few quick and healthy waffle recipes on Pinterest lately so I decided to adapt one and make it my own.  The result was not only easy, it was pretty tasty as well.  The whole family approved.

Oat Waffles


 

2 1/2 C. oats ( I used 2 C. of old fashioned oats + 1/2 C. of steel cut oats for added crunch)

1 1/2 C. water

1 1/2 C. almond milk / milk of your choice

1/2 C. unsweetened applesauce

pinch of lemon zest (Brad says he would have preferred cinnamon.  I will give that a try next time) 


 

Combine all ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth.

Spray a preheated waffle iron with coconut oil (or any oil of your choice) and pour in the batter.

Cook until they are slightly golden brown and crispy


 

I topped Fenner’s waffle with a dollop Greek yogurt and strawberries.  Brad and I splurged.  We had them with maple syrup and bacon.  Don’t worry we did a family T25 work out to make up for it!
