Multi-Grain Waffles

Healthy waffles, do they exist? This recipe from Eating Well is healthy, full of whole grains, crunchy, a tad bit sweet. Great from freezer to toaster on busy mornings.

2 cups buttermilk (I just sed a scant 2 cups milk and 2 T white vinegar)
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Soak oats in buttermilk for 15 minutes. Add in the rest of wet ingredients in there. Combine dry. Combine wet and dry. Heat waffle iron according to your iron. Spray or butter iron. For me, I put in 1/3 cup of batter and cook until no more steam comes out of the iron.
Good with fresh fruit, vanilla yogurt. I need to keep eating them without plain sugar maple syrup - I need to start putting a different topping on the waffles.
These are supposed to make 16 waffles, I got 8 - (again, different waffle makers). So, they are 180 calories, 4 fat, 3 fiber. Per waffle, or if you get 16 then 2 waffles is a serving.
