Oatmeal Waffles and Pancakes

There are so many family favorite recipes that I've been making for 10 years or more!  This is my go-to one for waffles or pancakes.  It can be changed up in so many ways.  I do always add a  teaspoon of vanilla, sometimes also a teaspoon of butter extract.  It's great with fruit mixed in, or on top. It's a filling breakfast that isn't super heavy.

Jake's been bugging me to see how the waffle iron works, so this morning we made this recipe. It's a great starter recipe, and it would be awesome with some strawberries mixed in, or maybe some mashed banana. Definitely add a splash of vanilla! I topped mine with Blueberry Syrup, Jake had his with real Maple syrup we got during the season. Will definitely make this one again!

Oatmeal Waffles (or pancakes)
    2 eggs, beaten
    2 cups buttermilk
    1 cup quick cooking oats
    1 Tablespoon molasses
    1T vegetable oil
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    Milk (optional)

    In a large bowl, mix eggs and buttermilk. Add oats and mix well. Stir in molasses and oil. Combine flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder; stir into the egg mixture. If batter becomes too thick, thin with a little milk. Pour about 3/4 cup batter onto a greased preheated waffle maker. Bake according to manufacturer's directions.

    NOTES : To make pancakes: Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot greased griddle. Turn when bubbles begin to form on top of pancake.

    1. I recently got a waffle iron and have been looking for good recipes! Can't wait to try these.

      1. I had a pretty serious waffle making addiction for a while, it's so fun to open that iron up and see that perfectly crisp-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside waffle! :)

      2. I'll take waffles over pancakes any day...especially these! Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - Colleen

    2. No matter how you make them, waffles or pancakes, they look delicious!

    3. Those waffles look absolutely perfect!

    4. Oatmeal, whole wheat flour and molasses? I cannot wait to make these!

    5. Love the addition of oatmeal to the batter - gives the waffles/pancakes a nice nutritional boost!

    6. I make something similar and love having the oats in there - they add such a great flavor.

    7. I have a waffle iron but it needs more use. What a great reason to pull it out of storage! And these would be great as a dessert topped with ice cream and strawberries too.

    8. I have a new waffle maker, I think I will be making these soon! I love that they are made with oats and whole wheat flour!
