Whole Wheat Banana Oatmeal Waffles

As I've mentioned before, i'm not much of a breakfast or lunch eater.
But, that doesn't mean I don't love breakfast food.
And, lately, all I I've been able to think about is just that-
Especially waffles.
So, last night, I decided to whip up these whole wheat banana oatmeal waffles for dinner.
They definitely hit the spot.

Whole Wheat Banana Oatmeal Waffles:

Servings: 6
Serving size: 1 waffle

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups vanilla soy milk *
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. ground flaxmeal 
1 large ripe banana, mashed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle iron and coat with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.  Into the same bowl whisk together the remaining wet ingredients- milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, salt, spices and ground flaxmeal.  Beat the flour mixture in with the egg mixture until combined thoroughly.  Finally, fold in the mashed banana.

Carefully spoon the waffle mixture into your pre-heated waffle iron and cook until golden brown.  

Serve with syrup, jam, peanut butter, or fresh fruit.

*You could also use fat-free, skim milk, or water in place of the Vanilla soy milk I used.  Play around with the recipe a bit too- you can always add more mashed banana, a little honey or whole flax seeds.

Add spices appropriately: If you are using whole spices (recommended), add them at the beginning of cooking.
Don't forget Crockpot's (slow cookers) are a great way to
save money; My Crockpot (slow cooker) black beans are the
easiest to make, taste great and are super inexpensive and healthy.
cup of organic beef juice (grease-extracted), preferably left-over from cooking
a roast or prime rib.

Publishers have obsessively churned out memoirs over the past several years, but among shelves of mostly bland, self-righteous and poorly written duds, Tammet’s book soars.

Unscrew the toothbrush from the base, and rinse both pieces thoroughly,
inside and out. Flossing and brushing may remove food particles and plaque from the teeth, but
they can still get caught inside your mouth.

The reflected heat can be felts several yards in
front of the heater itself. So you won't have to stumble around in the middle of the night to turn up or down the heater. The HZ-7200 is rated at 1500 watts using your household 120 volts but I used a watt meter and was reading a lower wattage which is typical for all appliances.

There are different varieties specifically created for adults and kids with
various head sizes and bristle softness. Dentists recommend brushing your teeth for
at least two minutes each time you brush. Flossing and
brushing may remove food particles and plaque from the teeth,
but they can still get caught inside your mouth.

There are many different types available depending on your particular medical needs.
Probably it is not as easy as if dirt bike games, but it is by all odds something that may be done in
your yard. Several strain controls can be operated
with all brands of compressors and can come with visible contacts, enough room for wiring with numerous openings
and holes.
