Healthy Father's Day breakfast - Crunchy Oat & Wheat Waffles with Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Looking for a healthy Father's Day breakfast that's filling and tasty?

My in-laws make these waffles for us each time we come into town.  While these waffles are filling and ever so tasty, they are deliciously light and fluffy, and you'd never guess they were made from oats and wheat flour!  

1 c. boiling water
3/4 c. regular rolled oats
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
1.5 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3 T. vegetable oil
2 T. sugar
1 egg
1 egg white
1 1/4 c. nonfat butter milk OR 1 1/4 c. lowfat milk with 2 t. lemon juice added

In microwaveable bowl, boil water, then add oats and set aside for 3 minutes. 
In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. 
Whisk oil into the oats then add egg and white, then add buttermilk and mix. 
Add dry ingredients and gently mix. 

Cook in waffle maker - use vegetable cooking spray if needed. 
These work especially well in Belgian waffle maker.

Homemade Blueberry Syrup

2 T. cornstarch
1 c. water
1 c. blueberries
1 T. butter
1/2 t. vanilla
