Wholesome Waffles

My Daughter had been asking for waffles for a few weeks and I had been putting it off because I don't like making them. Getting out the beaters to whip egg whites for breakfast never is appealing to me. Then one day I thought to myself why go to all that trouble just waffle iron the pancakes, its not She will know that I cheated. So that is what I did and they were pretty darn good.

1 cup rolled oats
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 egg
1/4 olive oil
1/4 cup flax seed

In a large bowl combine rolled oats and buttermilk and let soak for 15 minutes. Meanwhile stir together dry ingredients, add to oats and stir in egg and oil. cook in a waffle iron until golden on both sides. Serve with maple syrup or good jam.

Perfect plate for that waffle!
You actually whip egg whites before breakfast? Can I come live with you? I'm lucky if I can get the bran flakes poured...
