Waffles are good, but oatmeal waffles?  Even better!  With a whole list of health benefits – high in soluble fiber, aid in lowering LDL cholesterol, and great for your heart – oats are one powerful, little grain.  These waffles are easy to throw together and go perfectly with fresh, antioxidant-rich berries. Boom, breakfast is served!
