Multi-grain Waffles

I love anything with strawberries!  Partnering 'em up with my favorite breakfast meal just starts my day right :)  I don't know about you, but waffles have always made me feel a bit nostalgic.  They remind me of my mom and how she used fill us up with breakfast goodness. *sigh*
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ or cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon canola oil
 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1.  Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.
2.  Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
3.  Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
4.  Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
