Oat Waffles

Saturday mornings are great for sleeping in, and are also great for making fun breakfasts. This morning John requested waffles, which turned out to be a fantastic idea!

Here’s what we did:

**Notes**
1. I use a regular waffle iron (not a Belgian) for this recipe:Waffle maker
2. Also, make sure to spray the waffle iron between waffles – I use my Misto filled with canola oil:

3. I’ve been making this particular recipe for a while, and in order to save time (and to avoid my lack of coordination pre-coffee), I’ve started making the dry ingredients into a mix so I don’t need to measure in the morning: Waffle mix
