Waffle Wednesday: National Championship Oatmeal Waffles

So, in case you don't follow college baseball, my beloved Gamecocks won the national championship last night, beating Florida 5-2....

Back to back....2010 and 2011

Last team to win in Rosenblatt Stadium and first team to win in TD Ameritrade Park.....

In honor of the win last night, I created a Garnet and Black Waffle...oatmeal waffles with raisins and craisins.......I'm so proud of my creation.....

You can serve it any way you'd like....I sliced and served with bananas and greek vanilla yogurt...but I know butter and syrup will be just as great.

This is a hearty waffle....and one that is full of an oatmeal cookie on a plate......

so easy to fix...just grab flour, oats (i used the old fashioned), baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, craisins (aka dried cranberries), 1 egg, 2/3 cup milk, and 1 1/2 tbsp butter melted

Just mix dry ingredients, add your liquid, and stir in raisins/craisins.  Batter is SUPER thick!  This only made 2 belgian waffles, but its just enough for me and my roomie!  We were up late last night watching the game, so this was a great way to wake up! 

Make these soon...such a great way to show team spirit for the Gamecocks...or, just a different way to savor the flavors of a cookie...either way, its a home run for you and yours!

Don't you love how cheesy I can be??? 

Dense.  Moist.  Chewy.  Cinnamony.  Just the way I wanted.....

I will leave you with....GAME!!!  COCKS!!!!!! 

Yes, its a cupcake SC logo my roomie and I made...if you like it, check out the Jelly Belly cupcake challenge at and look for SC baseball logo and the picture above and vote!  Thanks for your support!
