PCRM Recipe of the Week

RECIPE OF THE WEEK | Oatmeal Waffles

These easily prepared waffles are a delicious way to add healthful oats to your diet.


Makes 6 waffles

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups water
1 banana
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
vegetable oil spray
fresh fruit, spreadable fruit, or maple syrup for serving


Preheat waffle iron to medium-high.

Combine oats, water, banana, salt, maple syrup, and vanilla in a blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth. The batter should be pourable. If it becomes too thick as it stands, add a bit more water to achieve desired consistency.

Lightly spray waffle iron with vegetable oil. Pour in enough batter to reach edges and cook until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes without lifting lid.

Serve with fresh fruit, spreadable fruit, or maple syrup.
