Making a Deal

January 12, 2009 at 5:22 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

James and I made a deal this morning. Since it was his first day at his new job, we would make the waffles from the recipe he wanted if he would agree to let me try a reduced fat version the next time we make waffles. It’s all about compromise!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Waffles

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. AP flour
  • 1/2 c. oatmeal
  • 1/4 c. wheat germ
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Soften butter. Add eggs and milk. Blend ingredients together. Stir in dry ingredients until just blended. Bake in preheated waffle iron.

James’ mom sent us this recipe so I’m not sure where it’s from. I loved the fact that it has whole wheat flour and oatmeal in it! James claims the half cup of butter is negated due to the other healthy ingredients….not so much.

They sure were good though!



I took some frozen raspberries and nuked them in the microwave for a minute and then put some sliced bananas on top. Delish.



With 100% pure maple syrup on the side for dipping + TJ’s Fair Trade Organic Bolivian Blend coffee made via French Press and a big glass of ice water. I can’t think of a better way to start off your first day at a new job!

I really couldn’t tell there was oatmeal in them (they didn’t have an oaty texture like oatmeal pancakes do) which I was surprised about..I guess there just wasn’t enough of it.  They were good though and the combo of the ww flour, oatmeal and wheat germ gave it a hearty and almost nutty flavor. I think I could easily sub the butter out for some pumpkin or something else…I’ll have to do some research.
