Whole Foods Recipe: Whole Wheat Waffles

We've been on such a pancake kick for so long that I had kind of forgotten how much I love a good waffle. These used to be a favorite in our house and we rediscovered them this week (I made them twice!). They're a quick, easy breakfast and my kids hoover them. Stinky can help by dumping in pre-measured ingredients, which makes him extra happy.

I want to mention again the superiority of white wheat flour over red wheat (what is normally labeled as 'wheat flour'). I used to make these with red wheat flour and they were good. Nothing spectacular. But with white wheat flour? Freshly home ground white wheat flour? They are tender and fragrant and just ever so much better. And white wheat flour is still an unprocessed food, so you can feel good about using it!

Also, you can use either coconut oil or butter in this recipe. The coconut oil does slightly odd things to the texture (they don't get quite so crisp on the outside) but the flavor is lovely. Either way, they're great!

Whole Wheat Waffles

1 1/2 cups white wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1 large egg
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup melted butter or coconut oil
optional: 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix wet and dry ingredients separately then mix together until just combined. Cook on your waffle maker.

  1. White wheat flour? Sounds un-whole. What is it?

    I'll have to compare this to my mom's recipe for whole wheat waffles, which is the bomb (but I'm also one of those weirdies who thinks whole wheat tastes WAY better than white). Guess I need to eat lots of waffles in order for this experiment to be thorough. Darn.

  2. I loooove coconut oil. I grew up using it (we would always bring back a ton from India), and then rediscovered it a few months ago and remembered how awesome it is. I've been mixing it with sea salt for my curly hair days (inspired by your sea salt spray), love it as a moisturizer, and the deodorant I made with it is awesome.

  3. So is there a reason you linked to the brand of coconut oil you did, as opposed to Nature's Way, which is half the price? Is there some superiority here I don't know about? (Which is ENTIRELY possible). But either way, I love coconut oil! I still need to try that deoderant you linked to, but I can't find arrowroot.

  4. Love waffles and coconut oil! Had waffles for my birthday breakfast today...

  5. I totally agree with you about the white whole wheat flour! I also discovered whole wheat pastry flour, which I love for certain things, as not to give it that dense/rock heavy feeling.

  6. those look divine and i have an obsession with coconut anything, so i might have to try using coconut oil very soon :D -C.C.
