Peanut Butter Oatmeal Waffles

image

Weekend mornings just seems like the most perfect time to make waffles for breakfast. My Dad bought me a waffle iron  2 years ago and I feel like I don’t use it as much as I should so I have yet to try new waffle recipes.  Waffles are super easy to make and take nearly 10 minutes to whip up. The peanut butter and oatmeal in these waffles give them a nutty sweet taste that you have to try!

Yield:4

Ingredients:
2 cups of your favorite waffle mix (I used Krusteaz)
1 cup water
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup melted peanut butter
1/4 cup oatmeal
Cooking spray

Steps:
1. Heat a waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until combined (it will look slightly lumpy). Spray waffle iron and scoop in waffle mixture with a large spoon. Close waffle iron and let cook for 3 minutes…repeat until you have used all of waffle mixture. Top with warm maple syrup and your favorite fruit.
