Waffles, Waffles: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Waffles

The boys are sick again, they have a virus infection. So we have to be strong and sit it out.
My problem is that they don`t want to eat and we all know that sick and hungry children are dangerous children.

At least mine are.

As it is my job to feed them and if possible do it in a healthy way ( without them knowing it) I came up with the idea to bake some healthy waffles.

I used apples with the peel. No it`s not just because I am a lazy mother, its healthy.

And Oatmeal made sure that even if they would only eat a little bit, it would go a long way.

So if you make a batter with apples and oatmeal you just have to have brown sugar and cinnamon.

This waffles are not light and fluffy cake like waffles, they are moist and taste divine like a pound cake.

The apple and the yogurt make sure of it.

Give it a try.

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Waffles

2 c flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 c rolled oats

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 tablespoon brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 big apple grated

1 c yogurt

1 c milk

1/4 c melted butter

1 T vegetable oil (for waffle iron)

Preheat the waffle iron.

In a large bowl, mix together the first seven ingredients (flour to sugar). In a small bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt and milk and whisk to combine. Add in the melted butter.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix gently.

Don't overwork the batter.

Using a pastry brush, coat the griddle with oil.

Pour 3/4 c or so of the batter into the middle of the waffle iron.

Bake until golden brown and serve with maple syrup and thick yogurt. Or just with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
