It’s a Cinnamon Oat Waffles kind of morning around here. Sometimes we just love being grandparents and this past weekend was just one of those times. Everybody wanted waffles so I thought I’d change up the ingredients from my original recipe by adding oat flour with the added zing of cinnamon to the mix, and, man oh man, they were delicious! With my brood of grandchildren (we are only lacking two for a baseball team) I need to double the batch when I make these, and I also put all of them to work in the kitchen helping me make these delicious Cinnamon Oat Waffles.
The two youngest (Wyatte and Gavin) get to chase the cat around the house saying “meow” every few seconds, the next two (Kylie and Patience), get all the ingredients to the counter and beat the eggs into a bowl (hopefully not by dropping them on the floor), Autumn and Ethan do all the measuring and mixing of the ingredients, and Mason gets to help run the waffle maker. After all, he is the big twelve now and says that he’s old enough for those more grown up things, not just the “little kid stuff”. I get to do all the cutting of the fresh fruits and making the homemade whipped topping that goes on these wonderful Cinnamon Oat Waffles. Oh, and Pepere, he gets to do all the clean up, we wouldn’t want him to get left out of all the fun around here!
This Cinnamon Oat Waffles recipe is a great way to get the whole family involved in making breakfast! Put all the toppings in separate bowls and let them top off their waffle with a favorite ingredient. It’s a waffle bar in the making.

These Cinnamon Oat Waffles will put a smile on everyone’s face at your breakfast table. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring on the laughter, and all those gorgeous smiles while sitting around the table (and on the floor at our house) sharing a meal that you made together is all it takes. Today, life was amazing! Now I just need someone to steam the syrup off the floors! Oh – Pepere, where are you?
