These are amazing. We made these on the weekend. I don’t know the source for the recipe – a friend emailed it to me. These are so good, you almost don’t need any syrup or butter on them!  This makes a huge recipe; we halved it and still ended up with about 10 waffles.

4 tsps. baking powder

1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour

3 c . old-fashioned (large flake) oats

1/4 c. plus 2 T. sugar

1 tsp. each salt and cinnamon

4 large eggs

3/4 c. vegetable oil

1 c. high fat Greek vanilla or plain yogurt

2 c. milk

Mix together in a large bowl until smooth, using a hand mixer or whisk. Ensure the baking powder is covered by the flour and oats so as not to premature activate it. Let stand 5 minutes.  Preheat the waffle maker to medium-high. Place about one cup of waffle mixture in centre of waffle maker and using a heat proof spatula, spread mixture over the entire waffle maker.
