Molasses oatmeal waffles are like brown bread in waffle form. They’re a little chewy, wholesome and substantial.
Are you looking for breakfast ideas that keep you feeling full and energetic, that are healthy, wholesome and taste really good?
Molasses Oatmeal Waffles are the breakfast for you.
This is an old recipe that came with a waffle iron I got for Christmas the year I graduated from university. That year my mom and dad gave my siblings and I each a waffle iron, which came in handy at big family gatherings.
I used to make molasses oatmeal waffles often on weekends, before heading out on day-long hikes. They were the only thing that would keep me feeling full until lunchtime.
As often happens the recipe was tucked away and forgotten for years until I came across it in a folder last month. They are just as good as I remembered. Like brown bread in waffle form. A little chewy and substantial.
I drizzle molasses oatmeal waffles with a mixture of three parts maple syrup and one part molasses.
Molasses oatmeal waffles freeze well too. They are very moist so don’t dry out when warmed in the toaster. (You can also warm them in the microwave.)
