Oatmeal Waffles

Oatmeal Waffles
Makes six 7-inch, round waffles
3  cups rolled oats 
2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds (Vitamix can grind these with oats)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 1/4 cups milk, plus more if necessary
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Vegetable oil spray (for the waffle iron)
1. Heat a waffle iron. If you plan to serve all the waffles at the same time, heat the oven to 300 degrees.
2. In a food processor, grind the oatmeal until it resembles very coarse whole-wheat flour. Add the baking powder, salt, eggs, yogurt, milk, olive oil, honey and vanilla to the bowl and process until blended.
3. Pour the batter into a bowl and let stand for 5 minutes. The mixture will thicken as it sits. Stir in more milk if necessary.
4.  Spray the waffle iron on both sides with vegetable oil cooking spray. Even non-stick surfaces need a little extra insurance. Bake the waffles using about 1/2 cup batter or the amount recommended in the manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately, or place directly on an oven rack until all the waffles are done.
