These waffles taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie. They are delicious when spread with apple butter.
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup oatmeal (regular rolled oats, not quick oats) 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1-1/2 cups buttermilk 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 6 tablespoons vegetable oil (you may substitute unsalted butter, melted and cooled) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 2/3 cup raisins

Crumble the brown sugar to remove any lumps and place in a medium bowl with flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to blend. Add buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir until well blended and smooth. Stir in raisins. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart® Heart Waffle Maker on Setting #3 (green indicator light will be illuminated when preheated).* Pour a scant 1/2-cup batter onto the center of the lower grid; spread batter using a heatproof spatula to within 1/2-inch of the edge of the grid. Close lid of waffle maker - indicator light will turn red. When light turns green again, waffle is ready. Open lid and remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately. You may keep waffles warm until ready to serve on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet in a 200°F oven.
