Oatmeal Waffles

Combine in a blender, blend together on high for 1 minute.
1 3/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned, not quick oats)
1 T whole flax seed
1 - 2 T sucanut or evaporated cane juice crystals (more or less depending on your taste)
2 T coconut oil (no need to melt/ solid is fine)
1/4 t baking powder
1 or 2 t cinnamon
pinch of salt

Allow batter to sit for 10-15 minutes

Heat waffle iron. (I have found that a medium or lower heat works better for this recipe, but feel free experiment with your waffle iron. Also, if you open the iron and the waffles are sticking or coming apart, they need to cook longer.)

Cook waffles and enjoy with your favorite toppings!

I always double this recipe and freeze the extras. If you put parchment paper between the waffles they won't freeze together. Then just reheat frozen waffles in toaster or in the oven at 400 degrees for 2-4 minutes on those busy mornings that there is no time to make anything!
