Easy Oat Waffles

I’m probably late to the waffle game, but I finally got an awesome waffle maker for Christmas! I had been wanting one for 10 years (or since I became a wife and mom), but finding one that was not made from yucky non-stick, PFO and PTFE, etc, was challenging. Thankfully, the market in all things really is turning towards clean, healthy products, I was able to find this one! Plus, it’s only $20!

Straight from their description it says, “This one is designed with a unique and innovative DuraCeramic non-stick coating that last 4x longer than standard non-stick coatings and won’t flake or peel.  The safe, natural ceramic coating is PFOA and PTFE free, so you can cook foods without worry. ”

My kind of product!

Now on to the star of the show…

1/2 cup of melted ghee or coconut oil

-In another bowl, whisk together wet ing: milk, melted coconut oil, eggs, sugar or syrup, and vanilla.
-Pour the wet ing into the dry ing and stir until just combined.
-Let the batter rest for 10 minutes so the oat flour can absorb all of the moisture.
-Get your waffle iron heating up.
-Now pour your batter (you’ll have to judge how much based on the size of your waffle maker) into the waffle iron and cook until all the batter is used up!
-Can freeze laying flat and pop in the toaster on those busy mornings!

These are so yummy, fluffy, nutrient dense, and heavy. Top with some almond butter, coconut and pure maple syrup and you’re out the door feeling satisfied and loaded with nutrients your body needs to keep it’s energy up throughout the morning!
