This is a great-tasting waffle. Even my wife approved, and she is very picky.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Mix flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Beat egg yolks in another bowl, reserving egg whites in a third bowl. Add buttermilk, milk, and melted butter to egg yolks; beat until well mixed. Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture; beat until batter is blended.

  • Beat egg whites and vanilla extract in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Fold half the egg whites into the buttermilk batter until egg whites are incorporated; repeat with remaining half.

  • Ladle batter into preheated waffle iron. Cook until waffles are golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer waffle to a paper towel-lined plate to prevent sogginess and repeat with remaining batter.

Good recipe but most buttermilk recipes have baking soda. I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the white flour and just added everything in one bowl. I'm sure beating the egg whites and folded them it would make a nicer waffle. Re the other review: There is no need to soak the oatmeal it cooks in the batter when you cook the waffle. Read More

A nice hearty waffle with good flavor. The only change I made was to soak the oatmeal in the milk for approximately 15 minutes to soften before mixing. Read More

Very good. Made this watching my five and a half month old so I simplified the directions and didn't separate the eggs out. Still turned out well. Added blueberries to the batter for hubs who loves them. He really enjoyed these and we had enough to freeze for another time. Read More

Liked it for the most part. I used whole wheat flour instead just for personal preference. My only complaint is the amount of butter. I think I'll try a bit less next time. Otherwise fantastic. Read More

Made this recipe for my mom who's on a restricted diet. The only change I made was swapping the flour with whole wheat and it was great. Read More

I ground the oatmeal into flour. This thickened the batter a bit and I had to add extra milk. The waffles turned out light and fluffy...just right. Nice simple flavor. I did use whole wheat pastry flour. Next time I would like to try brown sugar or cinnamon. I think this recipe is a great base for lots of variations. Read More

Excellent but without any oil in batter sticks to waffle iron if not oiled first. Read More

The best waffle, I have ever tasted! Crispy on the outside & soft on the inside. I always make extra & freeze them separately once the are completely cooled off. When I’m ready to eat another waffle at a later time, I place in my toaster at the lowest setting & defrost mode. Once it pops up I flip the waffle upside down & toast at the lowest heat setting. It’s absolutely perfect each time!! Read More
