In case you didn’t know, today is National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day. I know what you’re thinking. “There’s a holiday for everything.” I know, right? Oatmeal nut waffles can be made by simply folding oats and nuts — almonds or walnuts perhaps — into your favorite waffle mix. Then, top with jam, whipped cream, or a simple maple syrup! Oatmeal nut waffles can be considered a healthier breakfast choice as oats are low in calories, and nuts are great sources of fiber and protein. Once you’re done enjoying your oatmeal nut waffle creation, check out what’s going on this weekend in the Triad.
