1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup skim milk
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons pecans, chopped
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Do your waffles stick? Three tips can help: 1. Make sure the waffle iron is hot. (To test, flick a drop of water on the waffle iron. If it sizzles and steams, it's ready. If it pools, it's not.) 2. Do not lift the lid until the waffle stops steaming. 3. Thoroughly coat with cooking spray (or better yet, an oil mister) before pouring on the batter.
Combine the milk and oats in a large mixing bowl and let rest for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add the butter, egg, and vanilla to the oats.
Add the dry ingredients to the oatmeal mixture, stirring just until combined.
Coat the preheated waffle iron or skillet with cooking spray.
Scoop 3/4 cup of batter into the center of the waffle iron and close the lid. Let cook until the steam stops, about 3 minutes. Open the lid, remove the waffle, and place on a wire rack or immediately serve.
Repeat with the remaining batter, coating the waffle iron with cooking spray each time.
If using a skillet, scoop 1/4 cup batter at a time, flipping when the pancakes start to bubble.
Serving Size: Makes 4 waffles, 1 per serving.

I tried this and the oats chewiness was not to my liking but the taste was good so the next time I put the dry ingredients in the food processor along with the nuts, the texture was much better and will do that in the future, also good with almond flour sub for nuts - 8/29/15
I like this concept and it is similar to mine. However I use 1 cup of leftover cooked oatmeal (it makes it less gummy), and I used whole wheat pastry flour. I also use butter milk or 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 yogurt. To get a crispier waffle I sometimes add corn meal and wheat bran. - 11/4/14
