Whole Wheat Waffles with Flax

For years when I “made” waffles for my kids it just involved grabbing some frozen processed discs from the freezer and throwing them into the toaster for a couple of minutes.  After I started milling my own grain and making my own bread it occurred to me that I could make other things out of freshly milled grain…like cookies, pancakes, and waffles.  Store-bought frozen waffles seem so processed now that we have become accustomed to the real thing.  Below is my recipe for delicious homemade whole wheat waffles.  This recipe has been refined and improved over the years to reach this current version.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Whole Wheat Waffles with Flax

Ingredients

  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups organic vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 stick (8 Tbsp) unsalted organic butter, melted and cooled
  • 8 tsp pure organic vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup soft white wheat kernels ground into flour (or 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour)
  • 3 Tbsp. flax seed (grind it into flax meal using a Tribest Personal Blender)
  • 1 1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp natural salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • Organic Maple syrup
  • Assorted berries
 

Instructions

  1. Add the wet ingredients and the brown sugar into a large mixing bowl and blend together using a hand mixer
  2. Then add all the other ingredients and blend until mixed.
  3. Make your waffles according to your waffle maker directions. I have an All-Clad waffle maker. On my maker, using 1/3 cup of batter per square and then baking them on setting 6 or 7 and waiting for the beep is perfect (six is a softer waffle and 7 ends up being a crispier waffle). I spray the waffle maker with coconut oil before each set.
  4. Serve with organic maple syrup and berries as desired.
