In looking through the recipes on my blog, I couldn’t believe I had yet to post a waffle recipe. Though I go through phases, I somewhat frequently whip up batches of the insanely easy Oatmeal Blender Waffles from Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook to have on hand. They freeze beautifully, and make a hearty breakfast that I can have ready in just five minutes (a quick pop in the toaster) when I don’t feel like making a big effort for breakfast.
Also, I do love oats, but I find a bowl of oatmeal weighs really heavy on my stomach as the first meal of the day … and though I can see how many bloggers love putting nut butter in their oats, the resulting texture is not pleasing to my palate. But, when I did some experimenting with my trusted blender waffle recipe, injecting it with some naturally healthy nut butter, I ended up with amazingly quick and easy waffles that don’t weigh you down. Yet, they are rich in fiber, and have just enough healthy fats and protein to keep me satiated. And for you multiple free-from foodies, this recipe is vegan (dairy-free / egg-free), soy-free, and it can be made gluten-free and nut-free if you so desire. Head to One Frugal Foodie for the Recipe.
