Yesterday was waffle. Hopefully, today will be butter. <——-That is what you get when you ask your spouse who’s mouth is full of ice cream to “quick, think up a clever title with the word waffle in it”. He’s taken, ladies.  He’s alllllllll mine.

These Whole Wheat Waffles are everything you want a waffle to be. They’re fluffy and crispy, and not overly sweet. Why in the world would you dump a bunch of sugar into something you are very likely to drizzle (drench?) in syrup? It’s beetle-headed I tell you. Beetle-headed. And speaking of syrup, try my homemade Blackberry Pancake Syrup on these waffles. Despite what the title says, you can totally use it on waffles too. 🙂

Whole Wheat Waffles are one of my favorite go-to freezer meals. I highly recommend you make a double or triple batch of waffles. You’re already cooking and making a mess, so why not knock out some easy breakfasts while you’re at it? You can microwave the waffles to reheat them, but I prefer to toast them in our toaster/convection oven. A smear of almond or peanut butter and a drizzle of honey are my favorite way to eat these waffles. The whole grains from the flour and the protein from the egg, butter, milk, and nut butter make the Whole Wheat Waffles a filling and healthy meal.

No matter how well-organized you are, mornings are complicated enough. Having some delicious heat and eat options on hand can ease the rush at the start of the day. A hot breakfast can make everything butter.

No matter how waffle the puns are.

  1. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients, whisking well.

  2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet. Whisk to combine, without over mixing. Allow to sit for 10 minutes while you preheat the waffle iron. Don't rush this step, as resting the batter allows it to develop the air bubbles that will create a fluffy product.

  3. Make waffles according to your waffle maker's instructions.

Recipe Notes

Cool extras completely on a wire rack and transfer to a freezer bag. Pop frozen waffles in the toaster and they crisp up perfectly.

If you are using regular white flour, omit the vital wheat gluten.

  2. Yay! I will be trying this recipe. I have kept my waffle maker out on the kitchen counter this winter for warm treats. I made your whole wheat Pizza and your sauce recipe this past Saturday. It was DELICIOUS! I have four boys… BIG EATERS… They loved it. Have a nice day!

  3. Yes, super excited to try these this weekend! And keep the vital gluten using recipes coming, I need to use up that bag! And I almost want my current waffle makers to have “accidents” so I can get the one in your link. Removable plate envy 🙂

  5. I made these on my princess waffle maker. Be jealous. They were yummy but I’m pretty sure the princess made it that way.

  6. Just made these & they were delicious!!! I didn’t have almond extract so I’ll have to get some to try next time. Thanks for the recipe, it’ll be my new go to!

    • Who-hoo!!! The almond extract adds a depth of flavor to the waffles to make them addicting. I hope you give it a shot when you have a chance. Thanks so much for commenting and rating the recipes.
