Oatmeal Pecan Waffles (Pancakes) Recipe – One of the alternative breakfast menu in addition to bread and pancakes is waffle. Make waffle is very simple, similar to we make pancakes. The ingredients are also not much different, in fact, I’ve also made a waffle by using pancake recipe.
Waffle I’ve made this time also something like the recipe with my pancake recipe. For variation, I added oatmeal and Pecans. Incidentally, I am not too fond of oatmeal unless there have been processed. While my husband was often breakfasted with oatmeal so that I always have on hand the oatmeal at home. So I and the kids eat the oatmeal follow-up is indeed rich in nutrients, I have to offer it again for example into a pancake, cake, cookies and also this waffle.
Complementary or waffle toppings can be customized to the tastes of the family. Similar to a pancake, waffle, this can be enjoyed with butter, assorted fruit, honey, powdered sugar, jam or sauce is a favorite. My favorite is to add a chocolate sauce. If I use powdered sugar or butter with added fresh fruit.
- 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
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 overmix; 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.) (Batter also can be used to make pancakes; see note below.)
Add fresh fruit and a light dusting of powdered sugar to each waffle, and serve.
