I must admit that sometimes my recipe experiments, specifically baking ones, fail miserably.  Its all in good fun, and I usually play until they are edible, but I need to toot my own horn a little to tell you this one came out great on my first try.  You should have seen me dancing around the kitchen in celebration as I stuffed waffle in my mouth.  Make these for breakfast and you will be a hero in your house!

If you are going gluten free, make sure your oats are gluten free.  Oats are often processed in plants that also process wheat products, and they can cross contaminate.  I have linkage for gluten free oat flour below.

Health highlight of oat flour: I have a thing for oat flour…  Why do I love it so much?  Because compared to regular all-purpose flour it has a lower glycemic impact, contains lots of healthy fiber, more minerals, and is less inflammatory!  Oats are packed with fiber and antioxidants, and can help reduce your cholesterol (from all that soluble fiber).  Oats have also been shown to help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, and help stabilize blood sugar.  They have been shown to protect your heart, and contain a lot of great vitamins and minerals.  Oats are a great source of manganese which serves several important functions in your body including protection from free radical damage.
