March 11: National Oatmeal-Nut Waffle Day
A search for "oatmeal nut waffle recipe" turns up this recipe from Taste of Home. Many other sites link or cite that recipe, and when I looked at the other oatmeal nut waffle recipes online they were all exactly the same as the one from Taste of Home.
I halved the recipe and used soy milk instead of regular milk. I still had some slivered almonds left from almond day so I used those for the nuts in this recipe. I think I'll be making this recipe again as it was a easy recipe to follow and the resulting waffles were very tasty. I think I'll have to try adding some fruit, like bananas or blueberries.
The waffles were tasty on their own, but I did top one with cherry-blueberry jam and another with cranberry preserves. I had the waffles as part of brunch, but SlashFood suggests making a dinner of the waffles by pairing them with chicken. That sounds intriguing enough that I may just have to try that later this week with the leftover waffles.
