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.

How To Make mom's crisp whole wheat waffles

  • 1
    Heat the waffle iron.
  • 2
    Beat eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients in order just until batter is smooth.
  • 3
    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.
