Oatmeal Waffles . . . these soft and tender waffles are hearty and delicious thanks to the addition of oats. Top them with berries for a perfect way to start the day.

My kids love it when I make hot breakfasts like these Oatmeal Waffles, Swedish Pancakes, and Blueberry Pancakes.

Recipe for oatmeal waffles with vanilla sauce and strawberries
During the school year I’m one of those moms that gives my kids cold cereal or sends them running out the door with a piece of toast in their hands. I am not a morning person, so getting up to cook is just not happening.

Now that my kids are out of school and mornings aren’t so hectic, we’ve been enjoying more yummy hot breakfasts like these oatmeal waffles. I enjoy them just as much as my kids do!

I love adding oats to baked goods because not only does oatmeal add fiber, it makes my kids’ stay full for a little longer. And of course it can add a yummy crunch.

Everyone in my family loved these waffles, and they are so simple to make. They will definitely be going into our regular rotation.

This time around, I served our oatmeal waffles with fresh berries and vanilla sauce. Simply divine! You can of course serve them with maple syrup or any of your favorite toppings.

I have several waffle recipes that churn out waffles that are crispy on the outside and chewy on the middle. These waffles are very soft. If you like crunchy waffles, you can try cooking them until they are a darker brown.

-Not if you want them to turn out. Just


-Yes you can. Feel free to use regular oats. They will add an even more hearty texture. Heck, if all you have is instant oats, those will also work in a pinch, as long as they are the plain variety.
-If you want to hide the fact that you are using oats, pop them in the blender and grind them. Your kids probably won’t even know they’re there!

Handy supplies for making these waffles:

-Waffle Iron: I have this Bella waffle iron, and I love it. Churns out tall and fluffy waffles every time!
-Whisk: You don’t need a mixer for these waffles, so a sturdy whisk is handy.
