Banana-Oatmeal Waffles
In just two years, these hybrids have gained a loyal following. The recipe is lifted (without permission) from Dorie Greenspan's delightful Waffles: From Morning to Midnight, but we've added a few twists, or should I say, turns. Julie's German oat roller processes the organic Oat hulls minutes before the batter is created. The oaty texture and banana flavour is a light, awesome combination.
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 TBsp double-acting baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground cimmamon
  • pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 3 TBsps brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 TBsp melted, unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 medium bananas, thinly sliced crosswise
  1. Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well
  2. Whisk together the eggs and buttermilk in a medium bowl
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the well, mixing until just blended
  4. Mix in the bananas and butter
This batter is thick and lumpy, so push and spread it to the edge of the grids. Excellent with just whip cream and syrup.
