Super Yummy Whole Grain Waffle Recipe

Super Yummy Whole Grain Waffle Recipe



This is the best whole grain waffle recipe ever! I have been making these whole grain waffles for years, and there are a few reasons I just love them, first of all you use plain greek yogurt, which adds a good source or protein to your whole grain waffles, which helps to keep you full longer.

Ingredients whole grain wafflesINGREDIENTS FOR WHOLE GRAIN WAFFLES

¾ cup all purpose flower

½ cup whole-wheat flour

½ cup rolled oats

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼  cup packed light-brown sugar

3 Tablespoons melted butter, plus you will need more for your waffle iron

3 large (hopefully farm fresh) eggs

1 ½ cups plain, lowfat greek yogurt.

PLUS Your favorite music to cook too, Willie Nelson works here



First whisk together all dry ingredients, flour oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk together brown sugar, butter, eggs and yogurt until creamy smooth. Next stir in egg mixture into flour mixture and mix well to combine. The batter needs to set for 20 minutes. It will rise a bit

Meanwhile, heat your waffle iron, once heated brush with butter. Pour ½ cup batter into waffle iron, close and cook until waffle is toasty golden brown. My iron takes about 2-3 minutes. Place waffles on a baking sheet in a low temperature oven to keep warm. This recipe will make approximately 6 waffles depending on the size of you waffle iron.


Why just use syrup when there are so many other great toppingsYummy Whole Grain Waffles

How about trying these

  • Fresh jam
  • Warm real maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar
  • More plain greek yougurt
  • Blueberry syrup


Or… don’t add any topping, they have a great taste and don’t really need much. They pair nicely with an ice cold glass of milk too.whole grain waffles and milk

You can  make a double batch of these whole grain waffles, they keep well in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for a couple of months. Cook once eat twice. Who doesn’t love that!

When you are ready to use them, pop them in the toaster on a low setting to warm and crisp. YUM! I usually grab a few as I am headed out the door to feed animals and start my busy day, they are so satisfying.

Hope you enjoy this recipe today and have a restful, peaceful Sunday.

Until next time, happy trails.
