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


  1. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.
  2. 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.
  3. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, to make a batter. Take care not to overwork the batter, it's fine if there are a few lumps.
  4. 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.
