              Oatmeal Toaster Waffles

              Waffle

              To save time on those busy mornings, these waffles can be made ahead and frozen, then popped into the toaster as part of a complete breakfast.

              Prep Time: 5 minutes
              Cook Time: 25 minutes
              Total Time: 30 minutes (+ reheating)
              Makes: 4 servings

              Ingredients:

              1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
              1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Quaker® Regular Instant Oatmeal
              1/4 cup (60 mL) cornstarch
              2 tbsp (30 mL) granulated sugar
              1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
              1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
              Pinch salt
              1 3/4 cups (425 mL) milk
              3 eggs
              1/2 cup (125 mL) melted butter
              Toppings:
              1 cup (250 mL) fresh blueberries, raspberries or strawberries
              2 tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup

              Directions:

              In bowl, whisk together flour, oatmeal, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and melted butter; whisk into flour mixture until smooth.

              Heat and grease waffle iron. Cook waffles, using scant cupful of batter at a time, according to manufacturer’s instructions. Let cool completely on rack.
              Stack waffles between pieces of parchment paper; freeze in resealable plastic bag or airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

              To reheat: Toast frozen waffles in toaster until golden and heated through. Serve with berries and maple syrup.

              Tip: Add cinnamon to batter for cinnamon waffles.
              Tip: Serve with sliced bananas, chocolate sauce and whipped cream for a slightly decadent dessert.
              Tip: Substitute Quaker® Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats for Quaker® Regular Instant Oatmeal.
