It comes as a surprise (to some) that a waffle recipe with the words “vegan” and “quinoa” in it can be so delicious. This is one of those recipes that is best described to my husband in vague terms because if he knew what I really called it, he would instantly be wary and disinclined to try it. As it was, I just made him the waffles, he happily ate them and said they were good before I told him that they had quinoa and flax in them. Then he promptly groaned and told me I had to stop forcing him to eat so healthy. He did, for the record, eat them several days in a row for breakfast, so apparently he got over his initial nutritional misgivings pretty quickly.
It was with a tone of equal parts skepticism and very great hesitation that my husband read my list on the kitchen chalkboard and said “Baked Noatmeal….what is that?” In all fairness, his state of dubious reservation was justified as I think we can agree that baked oatmeal without the oats would leave your breakfast decidedly lacking….or so you would think. Unless you had a dietary reason for not eating grains, including oats, it probably never occurred to you to try such a thing. But if you are one of those people, like me, who at times need to clean up your system, then Baked Noatmeal is definitely for you.
