There are some mornings I have a lot of time and when I do, I take the opportunity to cook up a batch of Honey & Oatmeal Waffles. They are easy to freeze and re-heat for those other mornings you don’t have any time at all. I’ve adapted this recipe from one I found in a Southern Living cookbook. I try to use ingredients that are a bit healthier and by changing out the oil, adding oats, and replacing the sugar with honey, then we get a much healthier waffle. For me, that’s a win-win. The kids get a good breakfast and they are eating something a bit healthier without all the extra fat and sugar.

HONEY & OATMEAL waffles

Honey & Oatmeal Waffles

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups regular oats
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons honey

Heat the waffle iron.

Combine dry ingredients together and set aside. Combine all wet ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.

Cook the waffles as usual on your waffle iron. Serve with maple syrup.

Cool on a wire rack. Place any leftovers in a freezer bag and store in the freezer. These are great to use on those mornings you don’t have a lot of time to cook breakfast. The kids can pull one from the freezer and either re-heat in the toaster or in the oven.
