A few lilacs fresh from the garden for mom

A little late, but here's a fun brunch for mom and everybody any celebration (and healthy too).


1/2 c. quick oatmeal
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. ground flaxseed (or increase amounts of oatmeal and flour)
2 teas. baking powder
2 teas. or more cinnamon
1 teas. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
3 tablespoons healthy oil
Mix dry ingredients together, then wet, let set for five minutes, add milk or egg if too dense to pour. Pour into wafflemaker (should make about 4 good sized waffles) and cook. Eat and enjoy.
My mom always loved waffles for breakfast and then LEMON cake for dessert on her special day. Any traditions for this day that you'd like to share? I'm sure there are a number of different ones--all unique. And family traditions can be a great addition to a work, either as characterization (Mom loved lemon anything) or background or even a telling event.

My mom loves going in the pool! But it's always freezing this time of year and it was way too cold to go today!

Happy Mother's Day!

Lovely lilies! I did a chocolate waffle the other day and it was not crispy at all. What's the problem?

I love lemon anything, too.

Aubrie--my mom LOVED to swim, her favorite exercise!

Conda Douglas said...

Enid--waffles are sometimes like cake here in the States--not crispy at all--maybe it's the recipe?

Conda Douglas said...

Dave--yes, it is possible to have healthy waffles!

Carol--I like lemon too, plus lime and vanilla--but chocolate I adore.

Oh, my mother-in-law would absolutely LOVE this recipe! I'm going to print it for her. Thanks, Conda! :-)

Conda Douglas said...

And it's healthy, too, Shannon!

Hi Conda:

We had a wonderful Mother's Day. We drove all the way down the coast to San Diego and walked along the small village shops that over looked the ocean. It was cloudy, but the temperature was just right.

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day as well.

Happy trails.

Swu--sounds delightful.
