One thing we have committed too this year is to eat all whole grain. Although this started months before the new year – it sort of is our new years resolution ;-) – to stick with it! It wont be hard, since well… we love it!
Best decision ever.
Worth every investment we have made in order to make it happen.
That being said…
Oh… we loved them.
I follow this blog called Inspired by Charm. This guy runs a bed & breakfast and has some great recipes go up from time to time… worth checking out :) – he put up this week his go to waffle recipe & so I had to try it. After all, if he feeds it to his clients, it must be awesome!
I did however tweak his recipe some, in order to accommodate our whole grains and different source of sugar. So heres what I did…
1 cup fresh milled hard white wheat
1/4 cup honey granules
(otherwise known as sucanat w/ honey – if you did not have this option,
you could use pure sucanat or regular white sugar)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp raw salt
1 tbs melted butter
1/4 tsp pure vanilla
(I used my friend Nicholes vanilla)
3/4 cup butter milk
—optional ingredients: You can throw in some semi-sweet chocolate morsels, blue berries or other fruit into your mix if you’d like. I made a few of the waffles with chocolate to treat my boys, 4 morsels per waffle did the trick just fine :)
Mix all your dry ingredients together.
In separate bowl mix melted butter, egg, vanilla and buttermilk.
Once mixed, pour that mixture into your dry mixture.
Stir well until thick and smooth.
I liked my batter really thick… sometimes letting it sit for a few minutes helps you get better results, so don’t rush pouring the batter.
Also this recipe only makes a handful of waffles. So for us, since we are a family of 5, I doubled it. We only had 1 waffle left. Next time we make this, I will triple it :)
These cook very fast on my waffle maker too. So keep an eye out while you cook yours too.
(Note: If you don’t have whole grain, you can still use white flour for this recipe)
