Cooking 101 - Cinnamon Roll Multigrain Waffle

So.....very.....good.  Perfect for a slow Sunday morning.  
Our church is later in the day, so we have some time in the mornings for a tasty Sunday breakfast.
{and I don't feel that guilty because of all of the protein-rich grains I used}

(makes 7-8 large waffles)

For the waffle: 
1 1/3 c. flour
2/3 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. quick cooking oats (or grind up some regular oats)
2 T. chia seed or 2 T. ground flax seed  (chia has a delicious, nutty flavor and adds the smallest amount of texture.  Plus, it's freakishly good for you with the antioxidants and protein)
1 1/2 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder

Whisk to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine
2 c. evaporated milk (canned milk)
1/2 c. milk (to thin the batter a little--use it however you want/need)
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 T. canola oil

Whisk to combine - then add to the dry ingredients until everything is well incorporated.  Let sit for a minute while you make the sauces.  Original sauce recipes from:  Recipe Girl

Brown Sugar sauce:
1/2 c. butter, melted 
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. ground cinnamon
Whisk together in a small bowl.  You can drizzle from the bowl or pour it into a plastic baggie, clip the tip, and drizzle from the bag.  (I used a Wilton bottle)

Cream cheese sauce:
2 oz. cream cheese
4 T. butter
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
Combine everything together in a small heat-proof bowl; microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so until melted.  Drizzle from the bowl, bottle, or plastic baggie as mentioned above.

I'm not saying it's healthy, but it was a fun, slow start to a beautiful day.  I highly recommend doing this for yourself every now and then!
