Oatmeal Cinnamon Waffles


On Saturday morning I sooo wanted to go out to breakfast. Then I realized the amount of work that would go into that, and it just wasn’t going to happen! By the time we sat down, I would be soooo hungry!

I am the biggest grump without food!

We stayed at home and Casey made coffee, while I made waffles. I had picked out a recipe from this month’s Sunset Magazine to try and was really happy with the result! The waffles are SUPER hearty (You only really need 1) and are somewhat healthy for you. They are by no means light, which is why I recommend only eating 1 per person. Anymore might put you in a waffle coma…and believe me I know. I suffered from one 😉

The oatmeal gives the waffles a really nice bite. I prefer a crunchier waffle, so the oatmeal helps with that.

a good morning

I played around and added blueberries to one waffle…and of course Casey wanted a chocolate chip one. They both were tasty.

one is enough!

    […] only take one to fill you up. Really. This waffle is hearty. I spied the recipe on the very lovely Shutterbean’s site (who originally found the recipe in Sunset magazine) and knew that this would be the waffle recipe […]

  • Bethany

    I’m confused… when do you add the oats, cinnamon, brown sugar ingredients?

  • bob

    Oatmeal AND waffles? Sign me up! (I always thought you broke the waffles into 4 portions. Is one waffle a serving?)
