The waffle is a breakfast treat that became popular during the Middle Ages although many of us have replaced this baked delight with a bowl of cereal of a coffee. Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day celebrates this ancient food; the addition of oatmeal and nuts signifies the fact that peasants added these substances to give a bit of extra flavour to what may have otherwise been a relatively bland waffle alone.
Although the exact origins of this event are still unknown, there is no secret in regards to how it can be celebrated. Simply bypass that cup of coffee or egg sandwich and opt for a tasty mixture of oatmeal, nuts and waffles. For a bit of variety, never be afraid to add a bit of fruit, honey or maple syrup. Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day is another time when it is acceptable to “splurge” a bit on a variety of ingredients. Commemorating these satisfying foods has never been tastier!
