Oat Waffles with Warm Cinnamon-Apple Fruit Topping
Oat flour adds tenderness and soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar. To make oat flour, grind about 1 cup regular or quick oats in a food processor until fine, then measure ½ cup for the recipe.
- 10 (1 waffle each)
1. For fruit topping, in a medium saucepan stir together juice, 3 tablespoons sugar, tapioca, cinnamon sticks and cinnamon; let stand for 5 minutes. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until juice mixture comes to a full boil. Add mixed dried fruit and dried cherries; simmer, uncovered, over low heat for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fruit is tender. Remove cinnamon sticks; set aside and keep warm.
2. For waffles, in a medium bowl mix flours, baking powder, 1 teaspoon sugar and salt. Stir in milk, butter and egg yolk until blended.
3. In a small mixing bowl, beat egg white with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold beaten egg white into flour mixture. For each waffle, pour about 1 cup batter onto center of preheated waffle iron. Bake until steaming stops. Serve 1⁄3 cup warm fruit mixture with each oat waffle.
