Carlie's Chocolate Oatmeal Waffles Haiku: "First thing I must note: Yay! No egg separating! Not too sweet just right." Ahh a waffle recipe that doesn't call for separating eggs and beating the whites! My family loved these waffles (if you could believe it they liked them better 2 days later toasted and w/ just butter) but I wasn't quite as wild about them; a little dense but that's just a matter of taste. I knew making them w/ the oat and skipping the separating of the eggies that the end result wouldn't be a fluffy light waffle but hey 2 out of 3 people in my house devored them and they were easy to make so Success!
First I blended the oats and flour together. Then all the dry ingredients while I melted the butter in the milk in microwave. I pulsed the eggs into the dry ingredients then finally blended in the milk when butter was almost melted. Kids and wife very happy with it!
This tasted very good. However as written it did not work well in my Cuisinart upright waffle iron. The oats clumped and clogged the top opening preventing the batter from going all the way down. I had to add extra milk and the oats still clogged it. Next time I will use a regular recipe and add cocoa powder to it.
We tried these on a cold snowy day when looking for something new to eat. They were great but definitely not typical waffle density which is fine with me. I'm going to try the toasting them the next day!
