Preparation
  1. Heat waffle maker. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
  2. In large bowl, mix crushed cereal and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in egg, oil and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients except syrup and raspberries just until smooth. (Batter will be thick.)
  3. For each waffle, brush hot waffle maker with vegetable oil. Spread batter onto center of hot waffle maker. (Waffle makers vary in size; check manufacturer's directions for recommended amount of batter.) Close lid of waffle maker.
  4. Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown. Carefully remove waffle. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup and raspberries.
Tips
  • Serve waffles immediately, or keep warm in a single layer on a cooling rack or paper towel-lined cookie sheet in a 200°F oven. If you stack them, they'll become soggy.
  • Eating at least 3 servings of whole grain daily may help reduce blood cholesterol. Look for the word "whole" to be sure you get the whole grain.
