Is your tummy ravenous for real food? These hearty waffles made with whole wheat flour, honey, oats, and chopped nuts (I used pecans) will give you energy for the day. I found this recipe in Taste of Home Parties, Potlucks, and Barbecues from Joan Scott of Dunbar, Wisconsin. She found it in a church cookbook years ago and even occasionally serves them for supper. Taste of Home recommends for a quick waffle topping, sprinkle with fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries). Then melt some jelly with a squirt of lemon juice in the microwave and drizzle over the waffles.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, and honey and stir into dry ingredients and mix well.
- Fold in oats and nuts.
- Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown.
- Garnish with peaches if desired.
