Delicious Whole Grain Waffle Recipe
This is my go to whole grain waffle recipe that we use ALL the time! My kids love it and I feel good feeding them waffles that have a lot more nutrition than the ones we sometimes buy in the freezer section. They are easy to make and also freeze really well. The basic recipe can be changed up in a lot of different ways too. You can add blueberries, pumpkin or chocolate chips to make them extra special.
Clean up is so easy with my waffle maker. You can pop out the plates and throw them in the dishwasher for a fuss free clean up. When my kids ask for waffles (at least) once a week, I feel like it's a request I can actually fill. This whole grain waffle recipe is easy to whip up and easy to clean up. That's a win for me. I hope that your family enjoys this waffle recipe as much as we do!
My favorite way to make this whole grain waffle even more hearty is with a bit of creamy peanut butter and real maple syrup to top it off. My kids like to do homemade strawberry jam or maple syrup with frozen blueberries. What do you like to top your waffles with?
2 c white whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 c milk ( Once I used half and half and they were So rich in flavor! Sometimes I use homemade buttermilk too)
1/2 c butter, melted
2-3 eggs (for added protein and a more dense texture, use 3 eggs)
Heat up the waffle iron first so it's nice and hot when you are ready for it. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl (I always use glass bowls because they distribute heat evenly). While that cools down, mix the flour, sugar, powder, and salt together. Then add in the milk, butter, and eggs. Stir until everything is mixed together. At this point I usually let the batter sit for up to five minutes to give the baking powder time to activate.
Then, just cook the batter according to your irons instructions. I use a Krup Belgian Waffle Maker and get about 12-16 square waffles, depending on how full I fill the iron.
