Oatmeal nut waffles are made by adding quick cooking oats and different types of nuts to the regular waffle batter of flour, eggs, and butter. They can be eaten the same way as waffles - as is or with different toppings like fruit, yogurt, whipped cream, or jelly or jam.

Wholesome and Nutritious

Oatmeal nut waffles not only easy to make, but are also more wholesome and nutritious than regular waffles due to the addition of oats and nuts.

Oats are cereal grains that are high in proteins, minerals, and fiber. Studies have shown that regular consumption of oats can reduce bad cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancers.

Medieval Origins

Now enjoyed by people around the world as a dessert or breakfast dish, waffles are thought to have originated in Europe during the Middle Ages. The original waffles were made for religious purposes, usually from some form of grain and water, and frequently depicted religious symbols and patterns.

Waffle Day

Waffles are celebrated on two other days during the year - March 25 and August 24. The August 24 Waffle Day commemorates the day in 1869 when the first waffle iron was patented in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • With lots of oatmeal nut waffles! Add an assortment of nuts - pecans, cashews, almonds, and walnuts. What about adding some raisins or dates to the mix?
  • Experiment with toppings. Make savory oatmeal nut waffles instead of sweet waffles. Serve the waffles with cream cheese, sour cream, or vegetables.

Did You Know...

...that in North America, the word waffle can also mean to change one's mind frequently? In the United Kingdom, it is usually used to refer to conversations about trivial matters.
