I make a double batch and then freeze them, so I can enjoy them for the entire week. I just reheat them on the toaster option in our toaster oven (best appliance ever, I use it all the time since we don't have a microwave).
Leland also really enjoys them, which is awesome since they are an easy breakfast (once they are frozen). Leland enjoys his plain or with some yogurt.
|Overnight Oatmeal Waffles||(original recipe from One Lovely Life)|
Serves: I usually get about 10 waffles, we have a large waffle iron though, so you may get more. More the merrier!
- 4 cups thick cut oats
- 4 cups buttermilk
- 4 eggs
- 1 pound melted butter
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 4 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
- 1 tsp baking powder (this is for high altitude, you sea level folks may want to bump this up to two, same for the baking soda)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Other additions that are delicious: coconut flakes, ground flax seed, coconut oil in replace of butter
- In a large bowl, combine oats and buttermilk. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to prepare waffles, stir eggs and melted butter into the oat/buttermilk mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in flour mixture and stir till just blended. (Batter will be quite thick).
- Cook in waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions. You may want to leave them in a bit longer than normal to crisp a bit more. When freezing I make sure to not get them too crispy in the waffle iron so they can get nice and crispy in the toaster oven without burning.
