Oatmeal blueberry waffles

Sunday mornings in college were my favorite part of the week. 10 cent wing night and $3 pitchers on Thursdays was a close runner up, but Sunday still won out. The caf was open for breakfast until 11 or 12 (it’s been 8 years, I don’t remember these details), we’d lazily spend an hour or so nursing hangovers, procrastinating the studying that had to be done and enjoy breakfast in whatever clothes we rolled out of bed in. For me, that meant waffles. The wait was worth every minute for a giant, perfectly crisp, sweet waffle (who knows what was in that mix) that got topped with bacon, fruit and yogurt. I can literally smell that intoxicating scent of the waffle iron area as I type this.

Two years ago Ulysses got me one of those industrial type waffle makers (the same exact ones we had in college) for Christmas and I literally jumped around with excitement.

Cleaning it is quite a hassle (I think the no clean up part of the ones in college added to the idolization) but no pancake, breakfast bake or omelet can even compare to Sunday morning waffle breakfasts.

Sometimes simple is best and that’s exactly what these are. Simple, homemade, oatmeal waffles with fresh picked blueberries and a blueberry fruit sauce topping.

Memories of the caf, hangovers and lazy Sundays with every bite.

Blueberry Fruit Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat.

    I can totally still smell the scent of the college cafeteria waffle iron. Yum. And it was more than 8 years ago for me.

    I agree – nothing beats a waffle! Your food photography is SO beautiful. Can I ask what camera you use? I just started blogging three months ago & for now, am stuck with a digital point-and-shoot. I’d love to purchase a SLR camera in the near future, though!

    Mmm, I could go for waffles right now. It’s such a grey stormy morning and these look perfect for staying cozy inside all day. I’m so impressed that using all oat flour works this well! They look amazing :)

    upon first glance I thought that was bacon cooked into the waffle… slightly disappointed ;) still look really delicious and makes me want a waffle maker even more.

      haha, sorry to disappoint ;) Although, now I’m tempted to try that combination out!

    These are beautiful, I wonder if they would work with non-dairy yogurt and non-dairy milk! Guess I’ll have to try it out, I have a new bag of gluten-free oat flour in the pantry right now.

    These look awesome! Have you ever considered using coconut oil in place of the canola? Canola is highly processed and full of GMO ingredients. You may have already switched that up (since I see this is an older recipe), but just wanted to suggest it to you! Hope you don’t mind. :) Everything else is so healthy. Yum!!
