These waffles are very light and fluffy for being whole wheat. Very yummy and healthy too.


1 1/2 cups Whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon stevia or 4 tablespoons sugar
6 teaspoons Baking Powder
4 tablespoons flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 Eggs
3 cups milk
1/4 cup olive oil; or melted butter

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Mix dry ingredients.

Mix wet ingredients separately.

Mix dry and wet together whisk until smooth.

Pour about 3/4 of a cup of batter at a time onto the waffle iron.

You will begin to see steam coming out of the iron.

Cook the waffles until the steam is almost gone.

Any waffles we don't eat right away get put into the freezer, and we pop them in the toaster for a quick breakfast or snack.

I thought they were a bit dry and needed more butter or oil but my other half liked them so I guess we'll be having them again (but with more butter)

Pros: I loved these. I liked the whole wheat flavor and I did not feel guilty eating them. They were easy to make. The addition of the flax seed made them very filling. Cons: The butter was barely enough. They stuck a little to the waffle iron. I would suggest adding an additional tablespoon of butter or oil. My husband thought they tasted "too healthy". I thought they were the right mix of healthy but still very tasty.

Very good waffles, especially for whole wheat. I made a double batch and froze them, and they're a great alternative to store-bought.

Just tried these this morning and boy are they GOOOOOD. I didn't add the flax seed, but I did add some ground cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. I usually just make the recipe on the bisquick box, but I've developed gestational diabetes and have been looking for a tasty wheat recipe for some time now. These were AWESOME!

Great recipe. I added in an extra 1/2 cup of wheat germ and 1 tsp vanilla.
