Crepe Inspired Waffles

Here's a recipe that seems to be crepe-ish (okay I know that's not a real word).  It uses more eggs and butter than the average waffle.  I found something similar on Pinterest and altered it to suit our family's needs.

1 3/4 cups oat flour (I ground about 2 1/4 cups of whole oats into the flour)
1 T baking powder
1 T sugar
Mix in a bowl.

3 eggs
1/2 to 1 cube of butter
1 1/2 cup almond milk
Mix these in a separate bowl.

Combine all ingredients.  Cook in a waffle iron sprayed with Pam until desired crispness.  Spray waffle iron before you put more batter in each time or it might stick.  Makes around 5 large waffles.  They are very fluffy and not dense at all (due to the eggs).

Next time I will try using some coconut oil instead of part of the butter perhaps.

By the way, the original recipe had white flour instead of oats, regular milk instead of almond milk, and more butter than I used.
