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).

 waffle

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!).

Cinnamon Roll Waffle

Cinnamon Roll Waffle

Cinnamon Roll Waffles aren’t that hard to make and don’t take a creative genius.  All you need to do is take a plain pancake or waffle and hoard a bunch of cinnamon in it…wasn’t that easy? Let’s be honest, cinnamon roll waffle or not, none of my recipes are complicated.

As a runner, I like to eat quickly after my run and these cinnamon roll waffles are easy, simple, and delicious.

Pillsbury cinnamon rolls inspired these cinnamon roll waffles. My mom would make them most weekend mornings.

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