National Oatmeal-Nut Waffles Day | Oatmeal-Nut Waffles

Being that it’s National Oatmeal-Nut Waffles Day, I didn’t have too much leeway on the meal I make. See, this is what I was talking about yesterday. When the food holiday is so specific, it’s hard to adventure.

Well, when it’s breakfast or baking, I need the extra help so I’ll take a specific or non-specific food holiday for them. Oatmeal-Nut Waffles are straightforward enough.

Now, I can’t go back.

I love the crunch the chopped walnuts provide, and I felt like I could eat a couple of waffles without the guilt. I didn’t even feel the heavy feeling I get in my stomach after eating waffles with maple syrup. Eating a huge calorie and carb-filled breakfast basically ruins my whole day after the excitement of eating with my eyes has worn off. I then just feel gross. With these, you don’t have to worry about that at all.

These Oatmeal-Nut Waffles have a warmth from the cinnamon and almond extract, and they are so moist and light. I think I’ll make some more this evening to enjoy.  How about you?
