National Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day

March 11th is National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day, and it’s the perfect time for people to try these waffles if they haven’t before, or a perfect excuse for those who have to enjoy them again. These waffles are the perfect combination of texture and flavor.

These crisp waffles have a nutty crunch and the taste of either honey or cinnamon — depending on how the waffles are made. However, they also offer something a little better than a great culinary experience. They are usually full of fiber and may even be low in calories, making them an excellent breakfast food.

The History of National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day

We’re not entirely sure when this day was invented, nor are we sure who invented it. All we know is that this day spontaneously appeared one day on the internet (around 2011 or 2012) and has been circulating ever since.

We’ll continue to search for the origins of this day, but until we do, everyone will just have to be content with the information that we have been able to find.

Let’s Go Over Some Fun Waffle Facts!

  • A basic waffle is made from a batter of flour, water, oil, eggs, and baking powder.
  • Waffles can be a breakfast item, a dessert item, or even used to make ice cream cones.
  • The predecessor to waffles was oublies, which were sold during religious fairs and as street food during the Middle Ages.
