My Favorite Whole Wheat Waffles

I'm still computer-less. Every once and a while I steal my hubby's PC from him (aka if something is really really important). For example, this past week I had to make baby shower invites for a good friend. It turns out what would normally take me less than an hour on my Mac took me ages on a PC.

But for the most part David needs his computer 95% of the time for homework, so I'm stuck blogging from our iPad or my cell phone (which by the way, I actually really love).


Anyway, today I thought I'd share my all-time favorite waffle recipe. Why are they my favorite, you ask? 

For SO many reasons. 

#1 They're 100% whole wheat which I love (and I always feel great feeding my family something healthier). By the way, if you're family doesn't love whole wheat, this is a GREAT recipe to use white whole wheat flour in--- they'll look just like regular waffles but you'll be giving them all of the nutritional benefits of 100% whole wheat flour.

#2 CRISPY outsides, soft insides. Need I say more?

#3 These waffles are the perfect vehicle for enjoying other deliciously wonderful things. We like ours with fresh fruit, whipped cream or creme fraiche, pure maple syrup, honey, peanut butter, jam... ice cream... You get the idea.

Whole Wheat Waffles

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp honey 
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled

In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the egg, milk, and honey. Whisk just until combined. Stir in the melted butter until smooth.

Our waffle iron needs 1/2 cup of batter per waffle, but be sure to follow the directions from your waffle maker manufacturer when cooking your waffles.

Serve with your favorite waffle toppings.

  1. These were so delicious, Amanda, and they were just as advertised. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Aunt Kathy and Uncle Brandon and kids loved them too. They didn't even notice that they were whole wheat.
    Love, Grandma
