1. Place oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Stir in remaining ingredients as listed one at a time until mixture is a smooth batter. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
2. Preheat your Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #3. Pour 2 cups of batter along the center of the lower grid. Allow batter to spread toward edges for 5 seconds.
3. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
