It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a big reason for that is food. Glorious food. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, college football championship season, and all of the parties in between are celebrated with food, right? I can’t speak for your personal celebrations, but you won’t be seeing a lot of kale or gluten-free anything at any of my holiday meals.
So let’s just give ourselves a minute here, right after Thanksgiving and before Christmas kicks into high gear, to start the day right with some of these healthy oatmeal waffles. I’m not going to claim to have 100% accurate nutrition facts here, but you’re looking at roughly just under 300 calories per waffle. Plus the oatmeal is low in saturated fat and is heart-healthy, and kicking off your day with some fresh fruit on top isn’t hurting anyone. They are very filling, so hopefully these will save you from a morning run to the vending machine!
