Low Fat Whole Grain Waffles
Easy, healthy whole wheat oatmeal waffles
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup quick oats
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons oil
Syrup, jam, butter, fresh fruit, or whipped cream, for serving
1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, and baking powder.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk milk, oil, and eggs. Add to flour mixture and whisk briskly to combine. Let batter set for 5-10 minutes to thicken slightly.
3. Pre-heat waffle maker. Spray hot grids lightly with oil. Spoon waffle batter over grid and close lid.
4. Cook until done (mine took about 4 minutes for Belgian-style waffles). I like to set a timer so I don't have to keep checking, or risk forgetting to take the waffles out on time! Open waffle maker lid carefully by jiggling to loosen the waffles as you open the lid. Remove cooked waffles with fork.
If necessary, spray grid lightly with oil before cooking more batter.
Serve hot fresh waffles with syrup, butter, jam, whipped cream, or fresh fruit. We love ours with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries!
~4 minutes each batch
I've made these waffles several times now and they're great! I do have to spray my Belgian-style waffle maker with oil before cooking each batch, but depending on your waffle maker, you may or may not need to do that.
These healthy waffles aren't sweet. Like my original waffles recipe, they contain no sugar. They are super easy to make!
And we absolutely love hot fresh waffles topped with real whipped cream and fresh fruit, especially strawberries and blueberries.
