.long time no see.

Hello!! Man, what happened there?! Things have been a little crazy around this casa. We haven't been doing much of anything that has been blog worthy and big news! We're moving! Not sure of the exact date but it is most likely in the very near future and it is another cross country move, Georgia to Washington. The Alaska to Georgia move was incredible but we will see how this one goes with a baby and a cranky cat. Eek!

For now though, I have something delicious to share with you for Father's Day. The man requested oatmeal waffles for breakfast and that's what he got! This is one of our favorite, quick and easy breakfast recipes. I've made them multiple times now but have never gotten around to taking pictures before we gobbled them up. Today though I made it a point!

These waffles are super tasty. They are soft and fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and the oatmeal adds a really great texture to them. Even la bebe loved them. Although, that's not saying much, she eats everything.

Oatmeal Waffles makes 3 waffles
1 cup oats
1 cup buttermilk (or almond milk or regular milk, with a small amount of white vinegar added)
1/4 whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 egg
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Combine the oats and the buttermilk in a small bowl and let sit while you prepare the other ingredients. I usually try to let them sit for at least 15 minutes.

In a large bowl combine all of the dry ingredients, mix. Add the egg and melted butter to the wet ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Pour into the waffle maker or you can make pancakes with this recipe as well (we prefer the waffles though!).

Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruit, chocolate chips... whatever your heart desires! Enjoy!
