Mamatoo -- NO idea how to link to the comments, but you're more than welcome to just cut and paste the recipe!

This is my hands-down favorite! Yummy, heathy, and filling!

This recipe was amazing. It was a bit more involved than I usually do, so I'll probably make a double or triple batch next time so we can freeze 'em. I loved the cinnamon smell throughout the house while they cooked! What a winner.
Idiot tech question: is there a way to link to your "comments" so I can talk about your fabulous waffle recipe on my blog? I think Craver has done this?

mamatoo -- I got the recipe off of the cooking light website and it had the nutritional info included! I have friends who swear by the program, "Mastercook," since they can plug in their recipes and get nutritional info. As a mac user, it's not available...I'm sure there's something else, I just haven't found it!

Enjoy the recipe. It was a huge hit with everyone at my house!

wow - THANK YOU for sharing the recipe! My mother-in-law just gave us a waffle maker, but I didn't really know how to make my own batter.
I love that you have nutrition info on your recipes. How did you get that?!?

AMM -- this is so simple to do, and it saves us a lot of time during the week. I usually zap the frozen waffles (or whatever) in the microwave for ten or fifteen seconds, and then put them in the toaster to crisp up. Voila! Breakfast!

Here's my new favorite waffle recipe:

Multi-Grain Waffles

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

2 C buttermilk
½ C old-fashioned rolled oats
2/3 C whole-wheat flour
2/3 C all-purpose flour
¼ C toasted wheat germ or cornmeal
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
¼ C packed brown sugar
1 T canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

1. Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.
2. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
3. Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
4. Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

LM-I'm taking your idea of freezing pancakes, etc. My "freezer cooking" skills are still developing and that sounds like a great, easy way to go (especially since Musing Dad cooks all the pancakes & waffles in our house - I'll just have him double up the recipe!).

SP - So true! The responsibility of raising these kids completely overwhelms me sometimes. Not the laundry and cooking, but the sheer responsibility of it all.

I'm always amazed at things my daughter says or looks she gives...and then I realize that she got them from me. They do catch on to things and we don't even realize it...

Update -- Twin B. just redeemed himself. I was, again, doing a million things at once when he said, "You're the greatest Mom I ever saw."

Aw, shucks.

Andrea -- thanks for stopping by!

23 -- always glad to provide laughter...

frazzmom -- I have tried that french toast. It's good, but I try to keep our convenience food consumption to a minimum. Not to complain about grocery prices to someone who lives in the Bay Area, but food prices are out of control. And my boys can eat TWO boxes of that french toast for breakfast! So, I make big batches of waffles, french toast, and pancakes for our freezer regularly. I can do the whole grain thing, plus save money. A win-win!

But, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a baggie of cereal if that's all there's time for! And, for that matter, nothing wrong with being a daycare mom. I just wish my kids were more grateful for what they've got...

Heck- my kids eat cereal out of a baggie and they don't even go to daycare!

I know what you mean about observant though. And it's usually the (hopefully infrequent) moments you hope they won't notice that they remember most...

BTW- have you tried the Trader Joe's frozen french toast? I know it's not the same as homemade- but when you're in a pinch for time, it only takes 30 seconds to microwave and it's darn good!

"Caught not taught" is how I heard it described once.

The bag of Cheerios comment made me laugh out loud (and so did Craver's comment.)

Thanks for sharing!



Great post, Llama. I can very much relate.
