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).

Directions:

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!).

Favorite flavor of oatmeal? 

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

Cinnamon Roll Waffle

Cinnamon waffles aren’t really that hard to make and don’t take a creative genius.  All you really need to do is take a plain pancake or waffle and hoard a bunch of cinnamon in it…wasn’t that easy and good? 

These are a type of waffle that I make when I’m looking for something simple…yet it looks complicated and fancy so I fool people into thinking I’m a foodie.  Good thing no one stays long enough for dinner because then they’d be out of luck.

Cinnabun Waffle

Basic waffle ingredients:

2/3 cup flour

1 egg

1 tablespoon oil

1 tsp baking powder

½-1 cup milk depending on if you like a more dense/light waffle.

2 tablespoons sweetener (I used Stevia)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Cinnamon (I just shook it in until I felt satisfied)

To add more foodie flavor to it, I added pears on top.

Add all ingredients together and pour into your waffle maker of choice. 

Frosting:

¼ cup syrup (maple, sugar free…either will work)

¼ cup sweetener (I chose stevia again…what I had on hand)

2 tablespoons cream cheese at room temperature

1 tablespoon butter

I know this is unfoodie of me, but I added all the frosting ingredients into a small bowl and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirred then another 30 seconds.  That is how the LOLZ rolls.

And then walaa.

Like I said, these look and taste a lot more fancy than they really are.  I have gotten it down to a science of about 20 minutes to make 2.

Questions for you:

Cinnamon buns…yay or nay?

Easiest but most foodie looking recipe you’ve ever made?
