fill’er up: cinnamon oatmeal waffles

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve posted a waffle recipe. Believe me, this is the perfect waffle recipe after a long waffle-absence because it will only take one to fill you up. Really. This waffle is hearty. I spied the recipe on the very lovely Shutterbean’s site (who originally found the recipe in Sunset magazine) and knew that this would be the waffle recipe to get me back on the waffle train. Enjoy!

    This looks amazing! as do the apples right below…in my younger/less cooking years had I realized apples were for more than biting into raw, many a wasted produce would have been saved.

    This sounds amazing. I haven’t had a waffle in years. I always seem to forget about them. Thanks for sharing!

    I grew up eating frozen Eggos and frozen waffles as a kid and Aunt Jemima maple-flavoured syrup…eww. I no longer eat frozen waffles but I don’t get to eat real waffles either because *sniff* I don’t have a waffle maker. I bought one for my brother’s family last year for Christmas but neglected to get myself one. I know that they aren’t really expensive, it’s jut one of those things you’ve always wanted but never saw it as a priority, until you see a post about waffles and say…ohhh, waffles!! Yummm!!

    beautiful "cityscape-ish" picture too! wouldn't it be fab (in a sort of hansel & gretel way) to be have a waffle city with syrupy canals crossing it!! 🙂

    Congratulations on the nomination; that’s wonderful news. All the best of luck, and great job in representing us Canucks!

    The recipe sounds delicious. When I first glanced at this post, I too thought the first photo looks like the windows of a skyscraper.

    Now I really need a waffle iron.

    Suddenly I am overwhelmed with the urge to start production of these tasty treats… where the hell is my waffle iron?

    gastroanthropologist   January 29, 2009 at 2:58 am

    I’m without a waffle iron at the moment so I’m going to have to modify this a bit because this recipe sounds fabulous. And I have a huge container of real maple syrup that I received as a gift from my aunt in Vermont. (we won’t get into canadian vs. vermont right now!)
    Looks hearty, healthy, and yummy.

    Oh, yum! Love that there are oats and flax in here! Perhaps I’ll make them this weekend!

    why thank you veggiegirl! i’m pretty stoked!

    omnivore, yes, don’t throw away those apples! they have a new life 🙂

    me too, hayley, i think because they require a single use appliance that hides in a cupboard!

    bijoux, we got ours as a wedding gift and it’s perfect since it’s highly unlikely that we would have bought one for ourselves.

    lekker indeed, la ninja! yes, it does have a very cityscape feeling! thanks.

    spud, it clearly does.

    thank you patricia! these babies would certainly end hunger!

    cookiepie, oh yes!!

    thanks dawn…i’ve never had either, but it works wonderfully!

    culinarywannabe, i know! how can i justify a waffle maker and not a food processor? too bad for tiny kitchens!

    thanks sara! warm it up and grab some waffles!

    thank you, coopernicus, they are drool-worthy!

    caviar, boo for no flour, but i too have cinnamon cravings. mmmm.

    thanks donna, i’m pretty excited 🙂

    thanks for commenting, hello! i’ll go take a peek at your blog now!

    aw, thanks radish! me too 🙂

    sarena, they are good for you! chock full of whole grains.

    thank you tara, i’ll do my best! you’re right, the photo totally reminds me of a skyscraper!

    elizabeth, go find your waffle iron, stat! these are worth it.

    gastro, these are hearty and yummy and very healthy (as long as you don’t over do it with the maple syrup!)

    yup, totally a healthy breakfast in waffle-form, maggie.

    eatme_delicious   January 29, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Oooo I’m going to have to make these! I’ve only made waffles once with my new waffle iron because I’ve been looking for healthier waffle recipes. This one seems perfect! Going to have to try it.

  24. 24
    redmenace   January 29, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    I MUST buy a waffle maker. Like today. These look fabulous. Thank you for the inspiration! And, yes, you must try escarole!

    Mrs. L   January 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm

    I have never seen a waffle look so good. Seriously, it’s the middle of the afternoon and I now want some waffles for breakfast!

    kickpleat   January 29, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    eatme, this is definitely healthy! give your waffle iron a chance 🙂

    redmenace, i’ll try to find some…as i live in chinatown, it’s hard to find. i’ll just have to bike out to a different ‘hood and see what i can find. thanks for the inspiration.

    aww shucks, mrs L! these are as delicious as the photos (or more so!)

    thanks haley-o! good luck too 🙂

    chuck, thanks for stopping by! yes to vancouver food bloggers!!

    B   January 30, 2009 at 12:15 pm

    Made some substitutions (2c. buttermilk instead of yogurt and milk, omitted flax, added another T of br. sugar). Delicious. So hearty!

    Sara Z.   January 31, 2009 at 8:43 am

    Just made these. SO good. Question: do you think this same batter could be baked as muffins, or would that require some kind of modification?

  31. 31
    kickpleat   January 31, 2009 at 1:42 pm

    B, sounds like good substitutions! I always substitute what I’ve got handy. Glad you liked the waffles!

    Sara, I totally think you could make muffins with the leftover batter! I just made the waffles and then heated them up in the toaster when I wanted breakfast. But the muffin idea, I think it would work. Let me know how it goes!

    Krista   January 31, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    These look amazing!! Thanks for sharing!
    Your blog is great!

    Sara Z.   February 1, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    I actually didn’t have any leftover batter from this batch -I made all the waffles, for freezer and toaster oven. I didn’t mean literally the same batter, just same recipe, and wondered if I could make it and cook it in muffin pan (I don’t know why…just because?). Then I got to thinking of the waffle iron as just another way to cook batter, any batter, and it could be nice during hot weather to use instead of the oven, and now I wonder about savory waffles. Like if I could take this recipe and make it into muffins, could I take a corn muffin recipe and cook it on the waffle iron? One wonders. Well, I wonder…

    kickpleat   February 2, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    thanks krista for stopping by!

    yeah, i never thought of it that way, sara. indeed, it would be a great way to try out all kinds of things. and savoury waffles, yum!

    Shelly   February 2, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    Stuck in the house on a snow day, I had to make these4. Yummers! The batter didn’t exactly “pour” onto the waffle iron, more like I had to scoop and plop it, but they came out great and I am still enjoying the extras that went into the freezer. Just one of these fat boys and I’m good to go! Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi all, I made the waffles over the weekend and they were really tasty but I had to add extra milk – about a 1/2 cup more. The batter was just too thick before adding it. Did anyone else have this issue. Thanks K

    Pamela   February 10, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    I am really exited to come across your blog and especially your post about waffles, I will have to try them for valentine weekend. thanks pamela

    kickpleat   February 11, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    shelly, the scoop & plop method is the same one i used! glad you liked them.

    anon, the batter is thick. you can definitely add more milk if you feel the need!

    pamela, they'd be a great for Valentine's day!

    Sara Z.   February 16, 2009 at 4:39 pm

    I loved these so much I made them again pretty much after my first batch ran out. I replaced the yogurt/milk combo with buttermilk, b/c I had some to use up. These are just so good, and so healthy. I like to have half of one with a small piece of sharp cheese and a piece of fruit – lunch! Because of the shape, they thaw out fast and are good just room temp and untoasted. Half of one of these is also good as the toast in the peanut butter toast I like to have for breakfast with coffee and a banana. It’s just a great thing to have in the freezer.
