Last week I gave a sneak peek of my whole wheat waffles.. I’ve been messaged a few times asking when I would post them. WELL TODAY IS THE DAY! 😉
Waffles, I mean what is better than a meal that has over a dozen little bowls to hold syrup and other goodies!? They are so versatile and so much fun to play with.. You can make them as a dessert with ice cream, or dinner with chicken! Yum Yum Yum!
This is my basic whole wheat recipe.. You can swap out the flour for all purpose if you please, but these taste just as yummy and are healthier!!
Casey’s Wickedly Wonderful Whole Wheat Waffles –
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 1/4 cups of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 egg, separate the yolk and whites
2 tablespoons of butter
1. Heat your waffle maker to high, spray with nonstick baking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together your flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Makes sure its well blended.
3. Make a well in your flour mixture, place the yolk in the middle. Next add your vanilla and milk. Whisk until smooth. Stir in your melted butter.
4. In a small bowl, whisk your eggs until stiff. Fold that into your batter right before you plan to cook the waffles.
*Spray your waffle iron before each new waffle is made. Put enough batter to cover the bottom grate, do not over fill as you will lose batter spilling over the sides when you close it.. ( and who wants to lose batter?!) Also, make sure to use a wooden spoon when doing this, and use the back of the wooden spoon to lift them out when finished. You do not want to scratch the inside of your waffle iron!
Each waffle should take about 5 minutes to cook, if you lift the lid and its sticking just close it and wait a bit longer. All machines are different so make sure you read your manuel! 🙂 *
This recipe makes 5-6 belgian waffles!
I love to pile fresh fruit on top.. Or spread some “cookie butter” from Trader Joes and sea salt over the top and eat it like toast.. DELICIOUS!! If you are making belgium style waffles you can also slice the middle and stuff them with some marscapone or whipped cream cheese! MmMMMmmmmmM
I hope you try this recipe, and others!
If you do please let me know what you think…
