Oatmeal Waffles with Homemade Syrup

I’m a big fan of almost anything that uses oatmeal. It’s a versatile ingredient that can add a solid dose of fiber, substance and energy to your mornings, and to many other foods throughout the day.

Check out these other delicious oatmeal recipes from #FoodieScore:

This recipe uses oatmeal to boost the heartiness of your homemade waffles. I’ve found that well-cooked waffles made in a homemade maker can often lack a bit of punch and crunch, and I think the quick-cooking oats mixed with milk in this recipe take care of both to create a solid breakfast.

You can use your normal pure maple syrup or a basic pancake syrup with these, but you can take the whole plate up a notch with the homemade syrup recipe we’ve included at the bottom of the page. So, scroll on down when you’re done checking out the waffles to see how you can make a simple syrup with just a few ingredients you might already have in your kitchen. We think you—and your family—will be pleased!


Oatmeal Waffles

What You Need:

½ cup melted butter (1 stick)

3 tablespoons brown sugar

3 eggs, beaten lightly

1 ½ cups milk

1 cup quick-cook oats

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)

What You Do:

1. Preheat waffle maker.

2. Mix melted butter, eggs and brown sugar in a bowl.

3. Stir in all remaining ingredients until well blended.

4. Lightly spray waffle maker prior to making each new waffle.

5. Add about 3/4 cup waffle batter to maker and heat each waffle until done. Our waffles are ready before the light comes up signaling they’re done.

Serve with syrup and other toppings you like! (Homemade syrup recipe is below!) These waffles also go great with some crispy bacon or pork sausage links.


Homemade Brown Sugar-Butter Syrup

What You Need:

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup water

½ cup melted butter (1 stick)

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

What You Do:

1. Combine brown sugar and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.

2. Add butter and stir until all ingredients are dissolved.

3. Add vanilla and stir until mixed.

4. Cool 5 minutes, then transfer to pour-able serving container.

5. Keep leftover syrup in a closed container for up to a month in the refrigerator. We like to use the squeezable clear condiment bottles you can find at places like Walmart and Dollar Tree. To reheat, just pop the top on those containers, microwave for about a minute and serve.

#FoodieScore Pro Tip: This syrup goes great on other breakfast foods like oatmeal! Just pour reheated syrup over your bowl of oats, and you won’t need to measure and stir brown sugar and butter in your oats that morning.
