Feed Your Body Friday: Cinnamon Oat Waffles
Hello and welcome to this week’s Feed Your Body Friday!
When I discovered personal, at-home waffle makers a few years ago, I was very excited about FINALLY making perfect, fresh homemade waffles. Since then, I’ve tried many different recipes and this one is on the top of my list.
This cinnamon oats waffle is classic enough to please the little ones but tasty and different enough to jazz up your taste buds first thing on a weekend morning! It’s a perfect balance!
It’s a waffle at once crispy, not too sweet and light at the same time. Once done, all you have to do is put your favourite topping: like applesauce, cream or maple syrup.
Here’s a friendly tip: double the recipe because these waffles get eaten very fast!
Yields: 8 waffles
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8-10 minutes per waffle
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup salt
- 2 eggs, beaten lightly
- 1 ½ cups of coconut milk
- 4 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
- Preheat the waffle maker following the instructions of your own machine.
- In a food processor, grind oatmeal.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- In another bowl, mix the milk with the oil, then add the eggs and maple syrup. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is just combined.
- Cook as directed by your waffle iron until waffles are golden brown. Serve immediately or store in the oven (at about 250°F) on a baking sheet until ready to serve.
If you have leftovers, these waffles can be frozen on a plate and then transferred to a freezer bag once they are completely frozen. They can be reheated directly in the toaster and they will be just as delicious as they were when you ate them fresh.
This recipe is also perfect for a lazy weekend morning, you just need to put everything in the bowl, mix, and finally cook in your waffle maker. Get creative with the toppings, but we recommend fruitier rather than sugary-er options. Grab that farmer’s market fruit while you still can! What are your favourite garnishes? Let us know!
