Watermelon Oat Flour Waffles by Renata Stanko

This entry is part of the 2018 Use the Whole Watermelon Recipe Contest Winners. These Watermelon Oat Flour Waffles by Renata Stanko won an honorable mention in the 2018 Use the Whole Watermelon recipe contest. The fluffy waffles take on a pink hue from the watermelon juice and pair well with sweet powdered sugar, tart Greek yogurt and dish elevating mint. We also drizzled ours with a touch of honey at the end to satisfy our morning sweet craving.
