Oatmeal Pecan Waffles

Your children will jump right out of bed for these delicious waffles

Ingredients:

For waffles:
1 C  whole-wheat flour
½ C  quick-cooking oats
2 tsp  baking powder
1 tsp  sugar
¼ C  unsalted pecans, chopped
2  large eggs, separated (for pancakes, see note)
1½ C  fat-free (skim) milk
1 Tbsp  vegetable oil

For fruit topping:
2 C  fresh strawberries, rinsed, stems removed, and cut in half (or substitute frozen strawberries, thawed)
1 C  fresh blackberries, rinsed (or substitute frozen blackberries, thawed)
1 C  fresh blueberries, rinsed (or substitute frozen blueberries, thawed)
1 tsp  powdered sugar

Directions

  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Combine flour, oats, baking powder, sugar, and pecans in a large bowl.
  • Combine egg yolks, milk, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl, and mix well.
  • Add liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir together.  Do not over mix; mixture should be a bit lumpy.
  • Whip egg whites to medium peaks.  Gently fold egg whites into batter (for pancakes, see note below).
  • Pour batter into preheated waffle iron, and cook until the waffle iron light signals it’s done or steam stops coming out of the iron.  (A waffle is perfect when it is crisp and well-browned on the outside with a moist, light, airy and fluffy inside.)
  • Add fresh fruit and a light dusting of powdered sugar to each waffle, and serve.
