Did you really think I had forgotten the weekend?!?!?
Of course not!
I was just preparing something special.....
When I think of the weekends, I think of special breakfast. In our home that usually means pancakes or waffles. So of course, I had to incorporate those into our week worth of oats.
Here's what you get for the weekend:
Oatmeal WafflesIn a food processor (it is the weekend so there'll be time to wash-up later!) combine 1 cup oats, 1/2 large banana (or one small) 3/4 cup vanilla soy milk, 1 Tablespoon cashews and 1 teaspoon baking powder.
Blend until a smooth batter is formed.
Pour into your pre-warmed waffle maker & cook for recommended time. I find its best to have the waffle maker on the highest temperature for this mixture or else the oats can be a little under cooked. That is if you don't mind quite brown waffles of course!
Enjoy with running maple syrup or jam on top :-)
(Makes approx 3 waffles to make approx 5 use 1 1/2 cup oats, 1 whole banana, 1 cup soymilk & 2 T cashews.)
Stir 1/2 cup frozen blueberries into the oat/flour mixture & stir well.
Combine the wet & the dry ingredients and stir well.
Lightly spray a frying pan with oil. Drop spoonfuls into the pan.
Fry until the edges begin to bubble, then flip the pancakes & fry the other side until lightly golden brown.
Serve with more maple syrup dribbled over the top, or jam, or whatever you desire.
