Waffles have been a family favorite for many years.  I remember my mom making a huge, fresh batch of waffles and keeping the leftovers in the fridge or freezer for us to toast and eat all week long.  There’s nothing like homemade waffles!  

I was given the challenge of creating a recipe with a secret ingredient.  Of course my mind immediately went to my love for waffles.  It took some tweaking and adjusting the recipe, but I know that these Chocolate Oatmeal Waffles are a winner because my kids and husband loved them.  They can be eaten for breakfast, snack, or a delicious dessert!  

So what’s the secret ingredient?  It’s none other than iron-fortified Gerber oatmeal cereal, found in the baby food aisle at Walmart.  Yes, it’s one of baby’s first foods, but it also makes a healthy food subsitute.  Gerber cereals contain a blend of six B vitamins, Vitamins E and C, iron, zinc, and calcium, making every recipe you make healthier for everyone!
