"Delicious!! I eliminated the cinnamon and brown sugar and substituted 2 Tablespoons white sugar. I warmed the milk and melted butter (marg) in micro then added the slightly beaten eggs and warm milk mixture to flour mixture.

Topped with fresh sliced strawberries, raspberries and blueberries., warm maple syrup and a dollop of coconut nondairy cool whip . Just yummy!!!"

"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."

"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!"
