175g plain flour
100g rolled oats
40g light brown sugar
2 tbsp wheat germ
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch fine salt
2 large eggs
375ml milk
55g unsalted butter, melted
65ml groundnut or walnut oil
Maple syrup
Special equipment: waffle iron
1) Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Whisk the flour with the oats, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, then add the milk, butter and oil.

2) Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon or whisk, to make a batter. Take care not to over work the batter, it's fine if there are a few lumps.

3) Pour 85 to 125ml of batter per waffle (it depends on the size of your waffle iron) and cook until the outside of the waffle is crisp and the inside is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.(The time varies depending on the size and spread of a waffle iron). Serve warm with maple syrup.
