When most people think of waffles they don’t think of them as something that’s healthy. Most people will think about the thin crispy cakes that are fried in a pan and then covered in copious amounts of maple syrup-or even more likely, maple-flavored corn syrup. However, there is a healthier version of this traditional American breakfast staple and that’s oatmeal nut waffles.
These waffles have oatmeal and chopped nuts in them, which makes them a healthier alternative to many of the waffles that some people are enjoying. And of course, they’re delicious as well. That’s why every March 11th is celebrated as National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day.
