Soul-Satisfying Oatmeal Waffles

These waffles freeze well, so toast them all week long. For a fall version, substitute 1/2 cup pumpkin puree for 1/2 cup of milk. —Jeanne Stickell, Tucson, Arizona

    Since I don't usually purchase the oatmeal packages, I just used 1 cup old fashioned oats with 2 2T. Brown sugar. I also upped the cinnamon because we love cinnamon. WONDERFUL. I will definitely be making these again and again. My husband liked them because they had substance.

    My family loved these and they were quick and easy to prepare. The instant oatmeal packets are a unique twist! The only thing I did different was I left out the nuts. Would definitely make these again!

    Used the suggested 1/2 cup pumpkin instead of one of the 1/2 cups of milk - yielded a nice flavor balance to the chopped pecans. We didn't have any instant oatmeal packets so I substituted 1 cup old fashioned oats and 1 Tbsp brown sugar for the 2 packets the recipe calls for. The batter was pretty thick with the pumpkin and old fashioned oats, but it cooked nicely in the waffle iron when spread out before closing the lid. The kitchen smelled really nice with the cinnamon cooking. Overall, a nice waffle recipe that our two year old loved.
