Whole-Grain Waffles

Whole-Grain Waffles

  • Yield: 12 servings ( Serving Size: 2 waffle squares )


  • 3/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup(s) white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup(s) ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 2 whole(s) large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup(s) 1% low fat milk
  • 4 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, melted and at room temp


In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flours, ground flaxseed, salt, and baking powder. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture; set aside. In another medium mixing bowl, beat egg yolks slightly. Stir in milk and melted butter. Add egg yolk mixture all at once to the dry mixture; stir until moistened (batter should be lumpy). In a small mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold beaten egg whites into flour and egg yolk mixture, leaving a few fluffs of egg white; do not over mix. Pour about 3/4 cup batter into grids of preheated, lightly greased waffle iron; close lid quickly and do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, lift waffle off grid with fork. Repeat with remaining batter.

Higher protein variation: Add 3/4 cup vegetarian protein powder to dry mixture. Decrease milk to 1 1/2 cups and add 1/2 cup water to wet mixture. Continue with recipe as directed.
