Charlene’s Healthy Waffles

IMG_3931

Charlene did it again! These THM crossover waffles are truly the best I’ve ever had, combine that with the knowing they are healthy and it doesn’t get any better! (Maybe its just me, but somehow knowing its made with healthy stuff, liberates me to that second waffle.) This recipe is a must try. The fun thing with waffles is that you can add so many different toppings so they never get old. That’s why a second one is totally in order! Here Charlene has her lemon curd and raspberry sauce as toppings.

I think we need to have a waffle party some day! =) Wouldn’t that be a blast? I can just picture a buffet line filled with fresh fruits, creams, and sauces… and I can smell the waffles! (And almost hear the laughter of good friends after Janelle just told a good joke.) Okay, maybe I’m really hungry! LOL. But I WILL add that to my bucket list.

The other great thing about this recipe is that you soak the oat flour and milk overnight… making it super quick in the morning to go from batter-to-iron-to-mouth! The faster the better. But keep it in that order please.
