Apple Cinnamon Waffles

I was feeling a little creative in the kitchen this morning and came up with a winner.

Apple Cinnamon Waffles.

Here's how easy it was:

1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 packet instant Apple and Cinnnamon oatmeal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the above in a mixing bowl.

Then in another bowl combine:

1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp oil
1 egg

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  If batter seems a little stiff, add enough whole milk to make it the consistency of pancake batter.

Make waffles according to your waffle iron directions.  This made 3 large, round waffles.  If you need more, of course, double your recipe.

I find that heating my oven to 200 F helps to keep waffles crisp and warm while the others are cooking.

And my kids didn't even know they were eating oatmeal. (Hee hee...don't tell!)

  1. We LOVE homemade waffles...I never buy them at the store any more. We bought one of those little bakers from Kohl's that makes waffle sticks, and Brian will usually make up a huge batch for me to freeze. I, personally, like cinnamon pecan/almond. The boys just prefer cinnamon. Glad you found a way to get oatmeal in. We've been getting protein into Caleb's diet by adding unflavored protein powder to his oatmeal and his hot chocolate drinks. :) You have to do what you have to do!
