Multigrain Waffles

The latest favorite breakfast food for E is waffles. It's become so popular that I got my hubby a fancy (but inexpensive) waffle electric iron for Christmas since he is usually the one usually cooking them. The instructions came with several recipes. We like the one below the best. It incorporates whole wheat flour and oats for a delicious and healthier version of your basic waffle. We serve ours plain with a scant drizzle of syrup.

Multigrain Waffles
(Makes about 4 regular waffles, and 1 mini)
Ingredients
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk (works with So Delicious alternative dairy beverage)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil



Directions

  1. Combine flours, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.
  2. Whisk milks, eggs, and oil in a medium bowl. (I am pretty sure my hubby skips this and dumps everything in one bowl and whisks together. They still turn out great).
  3. Whisk milk mixture into dry ingredients just until dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened. A few lumps are OK!
  4. Allow batter to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Preheat your waffle iron (electric or otherwise).
  6. Pour scant 1 cup batter in center of waffle iron. Close top and cook according to your iron's instructions. For our Presto, it says to cook about 3 minutes. For our stove top iron, it can take up to 5 minutes over medium heat.
