Healthy and Light Oatmeal Waffles

Not-so-heavy waffle recipe.  Peter took a different recipe and one day substituted oatmeal instead of more flour.  It was a stroke of genius.

Soak in a very large bowl:
4 cups milk
2 cups oatmeal  –  old-fashioned style needs to be soaked for half an hour.  If you are using instant oatmeal, it can be soaked for less time.

Mix in:
4 egg yolks (save the whites for later)
¾ cup oil

Add:
2 cups flour (half white, half whole wheat works)
2 Tbsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt

Beat until stiff,
4 egg whites and fold into batter.

Use it in a waffle maker in the usual way.
