This morning we had a real treat breakfast. I don't have much time during the school term to do fancy breakfasts - it's generally muffins, oats or eggs. But the house was still quiet at 8a.m. with all my babes asleeping that I had time to make something before their empty stomachs woke them.
I ground 3 big cups of organic rolled oats in my mill. I do this on quite a coarse setting. While that was going I peeled 7 apples and put them in a pan on a low heat with cinnamon, sugar and a knob of butter. I don't like them soggy and overdone, just softened.
Seperated 4 eggs, beat whites to soft peak. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter. To the oats add 3 teaspoons baking powder and 3 tablespoons raw sugar. Add butter and 2 cups of whole milk along with the beaten egg yolks. When mixed fold in whites.
Cook on the waffle iron. If you don't have one, these can work as flapjacks (pancakes, pikelets) too. Serve with apples ontop, a dash of whipped cream and drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup.
It wasn't long until the babes were all awake and around the breakfast table to eat :-)
