Whole Wheat Waffles–Real Food Version of Eggo! {Freezer Meal}

Whole Wheat Waffles

If you follow our blog at all, you know our families love them some breakfast. We’ve got so many pancakes, waffles, French Toast, egg, and oatmeal recipes on our Breakfast Recipe Index page. So why another waffle recipe when we have Double Chocolate Zucchini Waffles or Pumpkin Protein Waffles right at our fingertips?

Whole Wheat Waffles

As you know, I often like to sneak some sort of veggie or fruit into many of our baked goods. But one particular morning, I was looking for just a plain ole waffle recipe that still packed a whole grain punch–the homemade, healthier version of Eggo waffles, you know? This one (inspired by King Arthur Flour’s original one) did the job.

If your family turns to store-bought frozen waffles for busy mornings, try making a big batch of these instead. Simply freeze them in a freezer bag once they’ve cooled. Toast them in the mornings and I think you’ll win your family over to this real food version.

I recommend topping your waffles with real butter (from grass-fed cows preferably) and real Grade B maple syrup (the healthier of the two maple syrups). A little goes a long way when you use the real stuff.

Whole Wheat Waffles
Serves: 12-15 square waffles (as pictured)
  • 1½ cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ cups lukewarm milk
  • ⅓ cup melted butter or coconut oil
  1. Preheat waffle iron while you make the waffle batter.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter or oil.
  4. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. The batter will be a little bit lumpy. Don't over mix.
  5. Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.

    I have regular whole wheat flour and AP flour, bread flour, and unbleached flour. Is there any combo of these that I could sub for the white ww flour? I have a hard time finding that in the store.

    • Rachel says

      You can sub any of those except the bread flour, I think. However, using the regular whole wheat flour may require more liquid. If it looks too thick, add a bit more milk.
