Reviews for Family-Favorite Oatmeal Waffles
"These turned out a bit dense. Only okay, not a favourite for my family."
"just made these and added blue berrys to the mix. all I can say is yummy."
"Made as is. Really like it."
"These were Delicious and easy to make. I will definitely be using this recipe a lot."
"The recipe made three perfect Belgian waffles. They were so yummy that no syrup was needed. I did not alter the recipe at all."
"These waffles tasted great and were quite filling. I always make a big batch and freeze them for quick breakfasts. Thanks for sharing."
"I made these today for breakfast. They were super. My roommate (he does not like waffles) even ate them and complimented how good they were. I did not alter the recipe except to cut it in half."
"The best oatmeal waffles ever! Perfection!"
"We loved having so much oatmeal in this recipe. We let the oatmeal soak in the milk (also added 1 tsp. vinegar) for 5-10 min. before mixing the rest of the ingredients. We prefer not to use so much baking powder. I used 1 tsp. baking powder & 1 tsp. baking soda. We like having more butter ON the waffles. So, 2 tbsp. of oil was added & 1/8 tsp. of nutmeg plus 1 tsp. vanilla. We omitted the cinnamon. 1 tbsp. of brown sugar was enough sweetness. Instead of syrup we enjoyed using cherry jam. The whole house smelled wonderful when we made the waffles. We will make this again very soon."
"These waffles are my favorite!!! If you want to eat them with eggs or savory foods simply keep the cinnamon out."
"Good hearty oatmeal waffle recipe. Work for a small local business ... in the city suburbs. And... our 5 children liked the waffles. My wife dry blended "Old Fashion slow cook Oats" and added to dry ingredients in place of quick cook oats. Turned out great!"
"I'm a little concerned that, after entering the ingredients into both a calorie counter app on my phone as well as a cookbook program on my desktop, the nutrition information is way off. For six servings, both programs I used to compute calories showed 352 calories per waffle... Double what the recipe states. I can understand a slight variance, but double? Maybe the servings should state 12 instead of 6? :("
"Rated as good as our standard Sunday waffles from Joy of Cooking. I used our (also standard) modifications: 1/3 of the flour was whole wheat and half the milk was substituted with yoghurt, in this case Ban-illa. These did stick more than our usual recipe, so I used an oil brush lightly on waffles 2-6"
"Went to make this recipe the other day, only to find that my daughter had thrown out the rest of my quick-cooking oats. So I gave the following a try, and it turned out fantastic...In place of the quick-cooking oats, cinnamon and brown sugar, I used 2 packets of instant maple and brown sugar oatmeal. My kids want to know when I'm making this again. SO GOOD!"
"Really liked the crunch oatmeal gives these waffles - I added scoop of whey protein powder and plumped raisins"
"This was fantastic! I subbed ground flax/water for the egg, due to an egg allergy in the family and the waffles were a wonderful texture. I also added vanilla (1 teaspoon per recipe). The flavor was good and the texture was just right--adding this to my collection, for sure!!"
"I made just the waffles, not the topping, and they turned out really well. They were very filling. I used 1 c. of unbleached white flour and 1/2 c. whole wheat flour. I also added 2 tsp. of vanilla."
"This was a great way to get more oatmeal into our diet. My husband doesn't care for oatmeal as cereal and this is better for our waistlines than oatmeal cookies. I want to try it next time with whipped egg whites."
"Very yummy and filling. No changes were made at all."
"Loved this! Added a little vanilla but otherwise followed the recipe exactly."
"Made with no changes. Very good. Any leftovers, I freeze for later."
"I had to add more milk to these. Too thick and gummy inside."
"Tasty and filling! :) I veganized the recipe, using soymilk, Earth Balance margarine, and mashed banana instead of egg. We used 1/3 whole wheat flou and, 2/3 all-purpose flour, and served the waffles with maple syrup, blackberries, and blueberries."
"These were very good. I used Baked Apple Oatmeal packets instead of plain oatmeal, which gave them a little bit of apple cinnamon flavor."
"These were wonderful! My family is already begging to have them again!"
"I made these a couple of weeks ago and they made a really nice change from ordinary waffles and pancakes. Both my daughters asked for these again."
"These are delicious! We double the recipe and freeze the leftovers for a quick breakfast. Everyone in my family loves them."
"I am always looking for a good waffle recipe. Unfortunately, for my family, this wasn't it."
"My kids and I loved these. Will be making them again often. I did do half wheat flour and half white."
"These were scrumptious!"
"These were great. Simple, filling, but not too heavy. Topped them with the Maple Apple Topping Recipe. Yum!"
"My whole family enjoyed them."
"I did half whole wheat flour half white. These are very good basic waffles."
"Excellent! I cut back on the milk to 1-1/8 c.for Belgian Waffles"
"Really filling and very tasty! I added one diced apple to give a little bit more flavour. I also substituted rolled oats for quick-cooking and they were just as moist."
"These are a great breakfast! I will make them again for sure. I am so sweet that I put an extra 1/4 cup sugar and 2 and 1/2 tsp of bakeing powder instead os 3."
"I made these for my sons today and they really loved them. I added 1 small cooking apple(diced) to the batter and the waffles were a hit. Will be making these on a weekly basis!"
"My son wil not eat oatmeal so this is a great way to sneak it into his breakfast without him knowing. Will make again!JenW!~"
"I'm hearing lots of "yummy"s this morning with breakfast! Will make again!"
"These are wonderful! I will certainly be making them again."
