Yogurt Waffles

It is tradition in our household to have breakfast for dinner at least one night a week. It eases my brain from thinking of too many complicated meals throughout the week. It also helps with the dishes load!

I tried this recipe from Everyday Food by Martha Stewart and these waffles were divine I tell you!
Here's the recipe:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups plain, low-fat yogurt (I used Yoplait YoPlus Honey Vanilla yogurt)

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, salt, baking powder, and baking soad. In another bowl, whisk together brown sugar, butter, eggs, and yogurt until smooth. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture and mix well to combine. Let batter sit 15 minutes.

2. Heat waffle iron. Pour 1/2 cup batter (this was too much for my waffle iron) and cook until brown and crisp. Makes 6 waffles.

Let me know if you liked these as much as I did! You can top, if you wish with vanilla yogurt and fruit. YUMMO!
