Whole Wheat Waffles

Serves 4


2 eggs
2 cups whole milk
¼ cup butter melted
1 tablespoon honey or 2 tablespoons of sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

(I only make pancake and waffle mix from scratch on special occasions, ie when I need to show off, but for weekday mornings or pancakes dinners I absolutely use the box mix. See below for my favorite brands.)

  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, honey, cinnamon, and baking soda until well combined.
  3. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together just until the large lumps disappear.
  4. Lightly coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 1 cup batter (this may vary depending on size of waffle iron) in the center of iron, spreading evenly with a spatula. Close iron; cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, 4-5 minutes. Remove from iron and let cool.


The Best Box Mix

I don’t always have the time to make my waffles from scratch. These box mixes are just as good as the recipe above and take half the time. Follow the directions on the box and stir in 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg.
