Eat Skinny: Be Skinny: Multi-grain waffles

Thanks to my fiance’s wonderful parents and their engagement present [Oyster belgium waffle maker], I got to try this delicious recipe out this weekend! For other breakfast lovers out there who shy away from pancakes and waffles, try this recipe out for a satisfying, tasty and healthy option of your old-time favorites!

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.

Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.

Spoon in enough batter into a waffle iron to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Add a dash of low-fat syrup, fresh fruit and a dollop of fat-free whipped cream and enjoy!
