  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Mix flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Super YUMMY! I didn't have buttermilk on hand but that didn't stop me :) I made buttermilk myself by using milk and lemon juice. Waffles turned out wonderful still! Thanks for recipe!!

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

These were a great change up to the normal waffles. I was so glad my two guys enjoyed them too, they are very particular with their waffles.
