Healthy fat and healthy grain waffle. Freeze well for quick toaster breakfast! Recipe yield is for thin waffles; I'd guess at least half that for Belgian waffles. I like to top with sliced banana.

Says it makes 8 servings. I followed the recipe to a T and it made watery batter, so thin floppy waffles, and only 6 on a small circle iron. I ended up adding 1/2 cu. more flour and 1/2 tsp. More baking powder halfway through bc they were soooo floppy, despite turning my iron heat way up. They are yummy but need tweaking. Read More

Absolutely love it! I make waffles every Wednesday (Wednesday Waffles!) and this is definitely my new favorite. I just use straight fresh stone ground flour (hard red wheat) and couldn't ask for better flavor. Read More

My new favorite recipe for whole wheat waffles, the Belgian waffles turned out crisp on the outside and fluffy tender inside. I used unsweetened coconut milk, and subbed Swerve for the sugar. Thanks for an awesome recipe! Read More

First time I made this exact to the recipe and they were great (made 6 waffles). Since then I've been asked constantly by the family for more....so each time I do something a little different. Like adding bacon chopped fine and sub brown sugar for the white sugar. Variations include adding flax meal hemp hearts...but always turn out nicely and make a nice crisp waffle. Read More

I sometimes make these vegan by substituting almond milk and a flax egg (1T ground flax mixed with 2T hot water) or just add flax seeds. I up the vanilla a bit add a small splash of almond extract and a teaspoon of cinnamon. This is a great base recipe for a whole wheat coconut oil waffle that can be adjusted to taste. My toddler loves them! Read More

I didn't have whole wheat pastry flour on hand so I tried it with regular whole wheat flour. They turned out a little flatter than they look in the picture; otherwise they turned out great. The best part is that my kids loved them! I was looking for a good breakfast to eat on the go for my kids and since they don't mind them dry I think these waffles will be a great option. Read More

Delicious! Made exactly as written and it came out very well. It's also easy to make which is a big plus. Only bad thing - it doesn't make enough. I'll likely double the recipe next time. Read More
