I was inspired to make this super-delicious and healthy set of waffles by a fellow blogger, Frugal (Frugal Hausfrau). By the way, her blog is fantastic. You should check it out. She made these awesome looking Scottish oatcake. Thus, I replicated her cakes. I didn’t have all the ingredients she actually added; as such I made the dish my own by doing waffles instead.
One of the important tips in making the batter is to soak the oatmeal overnight; which I did. I used the old-fashioned type and added whole milk. The oatmeal absorbed the milk and became more manageable. In the morning, I added vanilla, beaten egg (at room temperature), sour cream, half of a mashed ripe banana, sugar, and melted butter to soaked oatmeal. Dried ingredients in the form of whole wheat flour, a little all-purpose flour, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt were added to wet ingredients. Powered flax seeds and additional cinnamon were added and folded in batter.
When all the ingredients were combined, batter was placed on hot and oiled waffle iron using a 1/3 cup measuring cup. Waffles were topped with strawberries simmered for a few minutes with a sprinkle of sugar. Also a serving of orange wedges a fresh strawberry completed the dish. Thanks to Frugal the waffles were a hit.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
