Oatmeal Waffle

I thought I had shared this before, but looking through my archives apparently not.  Although I’m not an overnight oats, oatmeal all the time kind of girl, oatmeal pancakes I like.  I had always wondered if I put oats into a waffle maker…will I set it on fire?  Will it hold all the way through?  The answer is (clearly from the below photo) it did.  However, I did add two eggs to this recipe (and yes for just me).

Oatmeal waffle:

 1 package cooked oatmeal or ½ cup cooked oatmeal (I used Quaker’s Apple cinnamon because that’s what I like)

¼ cup flour

½ cup milk

2 tsp baking powder

¼ cup sweetener to taste

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

Seasonings I choose to add:  1 chopped up apple (to go along with the apple oatmeal), cinnamon and apple pie spice (I forgot that stuff existed).



Mix all wet ingredients together (including the eggs).

Add the sweetner followed by flour and finally the oatmeal. 

And then prey to the high heavens your waffle makes it through the cook process.  (just kidding).  I then went and topped it with yogurt because I’ve been really feeling that lately.

This is waffle that sits really well with me before I run.  I normally eat this roughly 2-3 hours before running and I feel like a million bucks when I do.  It’s a bit higher in carbohydrates from the apples, milk, flour and oatmeal but it works for me. (maybe for you too!).

Questions for you:

Favorite flavor of oatmeal? 

I like apple cinnamon but do enjoy the maple cinnamon too.  Basically all the cinnamon ones…


  1. I like cinnamon stuff too :). Your waffle looks really delicious and I’m glad it’s a good pre-run fuel too, always a plus!

  2. This looks amazing – it reminds me a lot of some oatmeal pancakes I had at the Flying Biscuit Cafe in Atlanta. They were so good and the oatmeal made them feel extra hearty without being super dense.

  3. Mmmm!! This waffle is my jam. I have to try this out. I’ve never done the overnight oats thing, but this is something I can get on board with. Pair that #coffeeaday and you’re ready to go 😀

  4. I typicaLly make oatmeal pancakes, but I need to try waffles. It’ll be a nice change for once. I need to use up the instant oats we have anyways. I’d probably say anything with cinnamon I’d my go to flavor. I don’t know how some people do the whole run on a empty stomach, but I need something solid to keep me going! Thanks for the new recipe!!

  5. This looks so good. I love the apple cinnamon combo. I like to add plain raw oats to smoothies for extra bulk. I’ve made oatmeal pancakes with berries before, but never an oatmeal waffle!

  6. I fell in love with a banana bread flavored one, seriously amazing. That and plain oatmeal with brown sugar in it is pretty darn tasty!

  7. I like banana and cinnamon in my oats, but I always was a big fan of the maple brown sugar. Surprisingly, I didn’t like the apple cinnamon all that much even though I like apples and cinnamon!

  8. Travis and I picked out our future waffle iron at bed bath and beyond this past weekend hahaha. it’s a double so you don’t have to wait for them both to finish to eat! this sounds so good!

  9. I love apple cinnamon and maple syrup. Lately I’ve gotten into mixing different flavors of oatmeal and it’s never a disappointment!

  10. Apple cinnamon is one of my favorites, but truth be told I am a plain jane when it comes to oatmeal and I just add banana and walnuts and cinnamon. Smart cook in the kitchen adding 2 eggs for structure. I made your oatmeal pancakes and they were the best I have had (i think because they used cooked oatmeal!)
