Start the Day off Right!!!

My kids have end-of-level testing this week. I think most kids are getting ready for testing. Why not start their day off right with hearty, healthy waffles!!! You'll love that they are eating whole grains for breakfast and they'll love the taste!

Deliciously Light Whole Wheat Waffles

2 C whole wheat flour
1 T baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 T brown sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 ¼ C milk
2 T oil

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Separate eggs. To the yolks, add milk and oil. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks when the beaters are lifted. Beat the yolk mixture until thoroughly combined. Add the yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and blend.
Fold in the egg whites. Bake in a greased or non-stick waffle iron until golden brown. Serves
4-6, depending on the size of the waffle iron.

**L** Use 1% or skim milk


  1. Isn't that the cutest waffle maker!! As soon as I finish my costco size bag of pancake mix I am switching to your wheat waffles/pancakes.

  2. We have the same waffle maker! So far I have always added 1/2 cup pinto bean flour and 1.5 cups whole wheat flour and we love it!
