Banana Oatmeal Buttermilk Waffles

(4 servings)

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 and 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large ripe banana - mashed
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
These waffles turned out very good. There was a lot of banana flavor even though there's just one lone banana in the batter. The oats (that weren't ground into flour) added a hearty texture. The waffles rose up very well. They're not as crisp and light as waffles made with beaten egg whites folded into the batter, but they were quite good and I wouldn't hesitate to make them again. I got 6 (nearly 7) waffles from the amount of batter produced. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in July 2017.)

I have a heart-shaped waffle maker and this recipe makes 8 waffles. I would expect a standard round waffle maker to yield 10. Hope you like it. Enjoy!
