Weekends are for waffles

This morning I woke up, and I knew what I wanted to make... blueberry waffles!  I braved the ankle-scratching juniper/crap bushes in our front yard to successfully ravage the one large blueberry bush that we have, and got about a half a cup of blueberries.  The rest is history.

Blueberry Waffles, cast and crew: (most of them)

1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. + 2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
1 c. oatmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg 
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. brown sugar, unpacked
3 Tbsp. canola oil
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 c. soy milk

Mix together the dry ingredients, then add the wet ones and mix well.  Let it sit for a few minutes for the oatmeal to absorb some of the liquid.  Then add...

1/2 c. blueberries
1/3 c. walnuts, broken into small pieces

Mix again, lightly, to avoid smashing up the berries.  Then set up your waffle iron, and cook according to your directions.  (Pretty much, plug it in, spray with some cooking spray, pour in some batter, close, and wait for the bell.)

Then enjoy some waffley goodness!
