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!
