Oatmeal Waffles
In our home I triple this recipe and then freeze the left over waffles. There is nothing to compare with them fresh though, but a frozen stock is good to have!

1 egg
1 and 1/2 cups oat bran
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of melted butter

Beat egg white until stiff. Mix together dry ingredients. Combine egg yolk, milk and butter. Add to dry ingredients. Add egg white, mix until just mixed. Cook in your waffle iron.

Sliced banana or strawberries (or any other seasonal fruit)
Maple syrup
Grated cheese

3 cups flour
3 eggs
350ml milk
2tsp Baking Powder
Pinch salt

Mix dry ingredients. Add milk and eggs beating with a hand whisk. Melt butter in a flat pan and add half a ladle of mixture into the sizzling butter - you can fit about 3 flapjacks in a medium pan at a time. Keep warm until all are made. Serve with honey, lemon juice and cinnamon sugar or have them with savoury accompaniments like, grated cheese, fried mushrooms and tomatoes etc.
