Mom's Crisp Whole Wheat Waffles

Alicia .


These are my favorite ever waffles. If you are just staring to use whole wheat and not used to the flavor quite yet, these are a great recipe to try out. I promise you'll love them!

What mom does is double the recipe and put the leftovers in a ziplock bag and freeze. WAY better than Eggos!! To reheat from frozen, use an ungreased cookie sheet and put in a 400 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes, the microwave makes them soggy.

10 Min


5 Min


1 3/4 c
1/2 c
vegetable oil (or melted butter for better flavor)
2 c
whole wheat flour
4 tsp
baking powder
1 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/2 tsp
sea salt (regular salt is fine to sub)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat the waffle iron.
Beat eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients in order just until batter is smooth.
Pour batter from a cup or ladle into the center of heated waffle iron and close. Cook until steaming stops, usually about 5 minutes.

I like to set a timer for about 4 minutes and check doneness.

Makes about 3 10-inch waffles, but my waffle iron is mini and I forget to count.
Optional, but yummy, sprinkle some sliced almonds over the batter before shutting the lid. Mmmmmm.

My favorite is a few slices fresh strawberries, handful of blueberries and half a banana sliced with a drizzle of maple syrup.
