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
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!)
