Looks almost as good as the burger/fried egg/bacon I saw Paula Deen sandwich between 2 glazed donuts yesterday. Nast!
Those waffles look really good, I like the oats idea, never tried that. Thanks for sharing another healthy recipe!

this is perfect.
i've been meaning to make some whole wheat waffles and was just about to research a recipe.
my little guy goes through waffles like crazy and i just realized i should just make them, they're much healthier homemade.

thanks for the recipe!
and, the old fashion oats. do you mean the rolled oatmeal, the non-instant kind?

sheena said...

caroline--yes rolled oats, not instant.

Yum! We will be having these tonight, thanks. Love love love your recipes. Our family eats much like yours. by the way, do you happen to have a whole wheat pizza dough recipe? I can't find one I like to save my life.

sheena said...

Brinn: We've tried aLOT of different whole wheat doughs....none of them very good--still experimenting:)
