Pecan-Oat WafflesSubmitted by: ANTIOCHIA
IntroductionRecipe revised 1/5/09 Recipe revised 1/5/09
1/2 cup broken or chopped pecans (or walnuts)
2 cups oatmeal (dry) (Old-Fashioned or Quick -- NOT Instant)
2 tablespoons Canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 -1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Put all ingredients into blender and blend well. Then, turn on waffle iron and let heat. Batter will thicken slightly while waiting. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray. Bake on the iron until the light turns off, at least 5 minutes, or until done. Don't peek too early, or the waffle will separate and make a mess.
Makes 4 waffles, about 7" x 7" (Actually, I pour a circle onto the center of the waffle iron, and it does not fill in the corners)
Nutrition info is for 1 waffle
For 1/3 larger quantity use:
2-2/3 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews, or combination)
3 cups water
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
This amount will still fit in one blender. Follow instructions above.
Number of Servings: 4

I just finished making these--I followed the recipe exactly, except I made pancakes (since I don't have a waffle iron!). They are PERFECT for a post-run snack for runners.... The recipe made 14 pancakes (4 inches each or 1/4 cup batter for each), so that made 1 pancake have 98 calories! - 4/10/09
I think you need to make this batter WELL in advance. I did like the instructions say and made it first, then plugged in the waffle iron. By the time the iron was ready, the batter was still extremely liquid - like WATER. I tried baking one like that - not a great result, although it tasted OK. - 4/26/09
I made just as directed, they didn't come out as waffles, I had to scrape it all out of the iron into one big ball and it took another 10min to cook.
I used the rest to make pancakes, but with that much oat/water, with no egg or oil holding it together it burns too much. I'll keep searching :) - 1/24/10
