For Waffles:3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup milk (skim works great for this)
1/4 cup fat-free egg product or 2 egg whites, slightly beaten
3 tablespoons canola oil
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/8 cup maple-flavored syrup
In large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar and milk; let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix yogurt and syrup until well blended; refrigerate until serving time.
Stir egg product (or egg whites) and oil into oat mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Let stand 5 minutes longer. Meanwhile, heat waffle maker (spray with cooking spray before heating).
For each waffle, pour batter onto center of hot waffle maker, spreading batter to edges. Use manufacturer's directions for amount of batter. Close lid.
Bake for FIVE MINUTES or until waffle is golden brown (for my waffle maker, this is a longer cooking time than it takes for other waffles). Carefully remove waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve waffles with topping.
We thought these waffles were WONDERFUL! Have a great bite to them. Very sweet, so it takes like a great treat. You don't need much of the yummy topping to really bring it together, so cut down the topping at least in half. Can't wait to make them again! : )
