Hot, fresh, and made from scratch with oatmeal and cinnamon, these fresh oatmeal waffles are a great breakfast for the whole family. Add some fruit and some pure maple syrup, and it’s a treat you’ll all look forward to!
I’m a huge fan of waffles made from a boxed mix. They’re so easy to just add a few things to, and cook really quick when you have hungry people (see below) clamoring for breakfast. However, since there’s not a whole bunch of nutrition in boxed waffle mix deliciousness, I wanted to find a way to make them from scratch, but it had to be quick and easy AND taste good. A couple of attempts, and I’m sharing the final recipe for my fresh oatmeal waffles with you!
These days, I make a double batch, and keep some in the freezer for the days where I’m low on time. They also keep well in the fridge for a few days – you simply pop them in the toaster for a quick warm up, and they’re ready to go. I LOVE this kind of breakfast!

The addition of quick cooking oatmeal to these seems to fill us up more easily, and sustain us until lunch. On the weekends, when we’re running around out of the house, it’s great to begin the day with a full belly! A touch of cinnamon and brown sugar is essential – don’t leave that out, it makes them super tasty. Hope you like them as much as my boys do!
