These healthful, good-tasting waffles are a tried-and-true family favorite—even with our two children. My husband and I have a small herd of beef cattle and some pigs. A hearty breakfast really gets us going! —Marna Heitz, Farley, Iowa

"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."
