Monday meals: waffles

Breakfast for dinner is always a winner, right? Waffles were pretty much my favorite breakfast when I was a kid, even though we didn’t have them often.

Though some might think it a lame gift, I was thrilled when my husband bought me a waffle maker for Christmas a couple years ago so I could finally start making this deliciousness for my own children.

There’s a lot of good recipes out there, but this one has become my go-to. With oats and just a touch of brown sugar, I like to think it’s a slightly healthier option than others out there. Though I suppose it doesn’t matter how much sliced fruit I throw on top, I’m still going to drench the whole thing in pure North Country maple syrup. How could you not?

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • two eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • six tbsp melted butter
  • two tbsp brown sugar

Mix all the dry ingredients together. I’ve found that corn starch keeps the waffles crispier, but if you don’t have it just substitute for more flour.

Mix all the wet ingredients together (eggs, milk, butter and brown sugar). Toss it into the dry mixture and stir it all together. Bake until golden brown.
