Ginger Oatmeal Waffles and Yogurt Whipped Cream
Looking for a gluten-free Fourth of July breakfast? Pick up oats that are labeled gluten-free, and use them in this delicious, savory waffle recipe. (Psst: Many brands of oats are made in a facility where wheat is processed, which means it's possible that gluten got into them. Your best bet is to look for a "certified gluten-free" label.)
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 2/3 cups plus 4 tablespoons 1% or skim milk
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 cups mixed berries
- Place old-fashioned oats in a blender or food processor, and pulse until the oats are ground into a flour.
- Pour oat flour into a medium bowl and mix in almond meal, sugar, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Crack both eggs and separate yolks from egg whites. Place egg whites into a small bowl and the yolks into a large bowl.
- Using a mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk egg whites until stiff peaks start to form. Set egg whites aside.
- In a large bowl, mix yolks, milk, olive oil, and vanilla extract together. Mix in flour mixture gradually into bowl. Gradually fold in the whisked egg whites. Let batter set while you preheat the waffle iron and prepare the yogurt cream.
- While waffle iron is preheating, mix 1 cup Greek yogurt, 4 tablespoons milk, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 tablespoon cinnamon together. Set aside.
- Once the waffle iron is ready, spray with natural cooking spray, pour some of the batter into the waffle iron, and close it. Let the waffles cook for several minutes or until they get a nice golden color.
- Serve the waffles with 1/4 cup of the yogurt cream and 1/3 cup mixed berries.
