My morning breakfast can have a big impact on the days workouts. Oatmeal is my go to but I eat it out of function rather than enjoyment. However, I’ve put together a custom oatmeal waffle recipe that’s pretty tasty. It even  uses coconut oil rather than butter. Warning, these aren’t light fluffy waffles however they are full of fuel.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour

1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 eggs – slightly beaten

1 1/2 cups milk

1/3 Cup melted coconut oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1. In a large mixing bowl  sift in flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Step 2. Stir in oatmeal,  make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed well and set the bowl aside.

Step 3. In a smaller bowl mix eggs, milk, coconut oil, vanilla and brown sugar until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

Step 4. Now add the liquids to the flour mixture and mix until the mixture is smooth and the waffle batter is done.

Step 5. Cook some waffles!

Step 6. Eat some waffles!
