Tuesday: Whole Grain Waffles and Fruit Compote
Instead of pancakes we opted for waffles. Here is how we do it!
2 cups of milk
1/2 cup of oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Cinnamon to taste
Mix the milk and oat together in a large bowl. Let this sit for 15 minutes until soft.
Step two: Mix everything else together and stir!
Step three: Place on waffle maker and cook until light brown/crispy
For our fruit compote we simply cut up fruit that we have on hand. Today that fruit was: banana, pear, plums, blueberries. We put it into a pan and let it heat while the waffles cook. Then we layer it on top of the waffles and smother it in honey. We use honey instead of syrup around here!
This is great because depending on how many mouths you have to feed you will most likely have leftover waffles to freeze for a later day.
