Are waffles not one of the best treats? My parents bought us a waffle iron back in the day and it somehow became the job of one of my brothers and I to make the waffles. I certainly wasn’t complaining though. In fact, I’ve borrowed that very waffle iron to use myself. I’m not sure my mom realises how long term the borrowing deal is…To make use of it while I can, we did a little experiment with oats, and the result of these oat waffles was really great. Why not try them for yourself?
Oat waffles Recipe
Yield: 6-7 18cm (7in) waffles
What You Need:
1 3/4 cups oat flour*
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup milk
3 tblsp oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
*You can easily make your own oat flour by grinding normal oats in a food processor or with a blender. I used my stick blender and then sifted it to get it nice and fine. Our first batch wasn’t sifted and still worked well, but it had a slightly grainier texture.
What To Do:
Mix all dry ingredients together.
Separate eggs. Add milk, egg yolk, oil and vanilla to the dry ingredients and mix.
Beat the egg whites to a stiff peak. Fold in one third of the egg whites into the mixture, followd by the remaining egg white.
Cook in a preheated waffle iron for just under 2 minutes each (depending on the heat of your waffle iron).
I often find that the first waffle sticks to the iron. The easy solution is to give a little spray of cooking spray before the first waffle.
