  • Make sure to use fresh oats for the best flavor.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use regular milk and add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar.

  • Instead of all-purpose flour, substitute whole wheat flour. The benefit of this substitution is that whole wheat flour is higher in fiber and other nutrients, making the waffles more nutritious.
  • Instead of buttermilk, substitute almond milk. The benefit of this substitution is that almond milk is dairy-free, making the waffles suitable for those with dairy allergies or intolerances.

Banana Oatmeal Waffles Replace the buttermilk with 1 1/2 cups of mashed banana and 1 cup of milk. Add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the mix. Cook as usual.

Fried Apples with Cinnamon and Maple Syrup - Fried apples are a classic accompaniment to waffles, and this recipe takes it up a notch by adding the flavors of cinnamon and maple syrup. The sweetness of the syrup and the warmth of the cinnamon will perfectly complement the oatmeal waffles for a delicious and comforting breakfast.

: Bacon and Cheese Omelette:

A bacon and cheese omelette is the perfect savory complement to the sweet fried apples and oatmeal waffles. The salty bacon and melted cheese will balance out the sweetness of the apples and syrup. Plus, the omelette is easy to make and will be ready in no time!


Q: How long should I cook the waffles for?
