Ingredients

  • For the waffles:
  • 3/4 cup Gerber Oatmeal Cereal or oat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk I use 1%
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • cooking spray
  • For the blueberry compote:
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries divided use
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Optional: vanilla yogurt or whipped cream for serving mint sprigs for garnish

Instructions

  • For the waffles:
  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • In a large bowl mix together the oatmeal cereal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the milk and eggs and stir until just combined. Add the butter and stir for 30 seconds more.
  • Spoon 1/3 cup of batter into the wells of your waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer directions - these waffles cook for 5 minutes in my machine. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • For the blueberry compote:
  • Combine 2 cups of the blueberries, sugar and lemon juice in a pot. Place the pot over high heat, boil for 3-4 minutes or until blueberries have just started to break down. Mix together the cornstarch with 1 teaspoon cold water. Add the cornstarch mixture to the blueberries and boil for 1 additional minute until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining cup of blueberries; set aside to cool.
  • Serve the waffles topped with the blueberry compote and vanilla yogurt or whipped cream if desired. Garnish with mint sprigs if desired.
