This is the best way I've found to get the kids to enjoy rolled oats. I don't stop at just rolled oats. I have a small collection of rolled grains and I just mix them all up so it's different for us every time. It is important to allow them to cook long enough as these aren't from flour, so they do require a longer cook time to get the grains completely soft. The other option would be to soak the rolled grains overnight (this is actually healthier for your digestion) and then adding the remaining ingredients and whizzing up some waffle batter.
- 3 C Water
- 1 1/2 t Vanilla
- 3 T Rice or Soy Milk or 1/8 C rinsed cashews
- 3/4 t Salt
- 1 Tbsp Oil
- 1 T Sweetener (corn syrup, honey, sorghum, sweet molasses, etc based on personal preference)
- 1 C Rolled Kamut
- 1 C Rolled Spelt
- 3/4 C Rolled Oat
- 1/4 C Rolled Rye (or any combination of rolled grains, even all rolled oats if that's what is available)
- If using washed cashews, blend them first in 1/4 C of the water until smooth.
- Blend All ingredients until almost smooth.
- Pour onto hot waffle iron that has been Sprayed.
- Cook until done, 10 - 11 min.
- Top with Peanut Butter & Applesauce or Cream Cheese & Fruit Topping
Cook time will vary according to waffle irons.NOTE: Children under 8 should only eat nut butters if they are made from a nut that has been boiled soft before being made into a nut butter. The digestion of a child isn't strong enough for nut butters of the ordinary type and it will cause constipation and stress on the system. After 8 years old, then they can enjoy regular nut butters conservatively.
