Whole Grain Blueberry Waffles and Buttermilk Syrup

Michelle Kleinman made her debut with grand style! She got the blueberry waffle recipe from citing it as a healthy AND tasty way to make waffles. Lest you start to wonder if Michelle is a health nut, check out her Buttermilk Syrup! The Buttermilk Syrup is what she had growing up and swears she'll hardly touch maple syrup any more! I'm going to have to introduce my family to this!

3/4 C flour
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C quick cooking oats
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 C skim milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 egg
1 C blueberries, rinsed (if using frozen, thaw and drain)

Lightly spray waffle iron with cooking spray; heat waffle iron. In large bowl, stir together flours, oats, baking powder and sugar. In small bowl, stir together milk, oil and egg. Stir into dry ingredients, stirring just until large lumps disappear. Gently stir in blueberries.
Pour slightly less than 1 cup batter onto center of hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Close lid of waffle iron. Bake 3-5 minutes or until waffle is golden brown. Carefully remove waffle. Serve immediately.

Buttermilk Syrup:
1 stick butter
1 C sugar
1 C buttermilk
1 tbsp Caro Syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Bring the first 4 ingredients to a boil. Let boil 1 minute and remove from heat. Add baking soda and vanilla. Stir and serve!
