- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch fine salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup peanut or walnut oil
- Maple syrup
Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.
Whisk the flour with the oats, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, then add the milk, butter, and oil.
Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, to make a batter. Take care not to over work the batter, it's fine if there are a few lumps.
Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter per waffle (it depends on the size of your waffle iron) and cook until the outside of the waffle is crisp and inside is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. (The time varies depending on the size and spread of a waffle iron). Serve warm with maple syrup. Repeat with remaining batter.
