Whole Wheat Waffles

wheatwaffles2Waffles, YES! End of post. (just kidding)

Pancakes are great and all, but my breakfast heart belongs to waffles and french toast. Put a fried egg over easy on the top, and my weekend morning is absolutely complete (as long as I have a skinny latte of course) Is it still a fried egg, if I don’t technically fry it? I just use a non-stick pan so  I don’t have to use butter/oil.  Salt/Pepper, that’s it, that’s all you need. Duh.

I have a bag of whole-wheat flour that I’ve been meaning to use up. It’s taken longer than expect because Brad is a huge whiner and cries when I use whole-wheat. (although he has permanently lost this battle with pasta, I only buy whole-wheat, and I’m the only one who cooks in this household…and buys the groceries. I win) He was showing a home that he remodeled this morning on Lincoln’s Remodeled Tour of Homes, so breakfast was all for me this morning 🙂 Along with whole-wheat, I also stray from butter as much as possible (as you know), BUT, if you want these a tad crisper, add a couple of tablespoons of butter.

Need something to go along with the sun splashing into your kitchen, 70 degree wake-up weather, the smell of stale beer (from a kitchen full of empty beer bottles from last nights festivities), and the perfect breeze blowing thru the kitchen as your hazelnut coffee is brewing? Then you should make some guilty-free whole-wheat, no butter waffles, and top them with blueberry compote!

Whole-Wheat Waffles for Two

1 cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar/sweetener

3/4 cup milk

1 egg, separated

1/4 tsp vanilla

3 tbsp of cooking oil

2 tbsp of butter, melted (optional, I’ve done this with and without. With makes your waffles more crispy)

1. Preheat waffle griddle.

2. Whisk all your dry ingredients together in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk all your liquid ingredients together. Stir the wet into the dry just until combined.

*** Want to switch it up? Add a mashed banana, 2 tbsp of peanut butter, 2 tbsp of maple syrup, a handful of fresh blueberries, 1 tbsp of cinnamon. Use your favorite ingredient! wheatwaffles1
