Whole Wheat Waffles

My friend DarcyLee over at Darcy's Kitchen Kapers (and In This Season) posted this recipe for Whole Wheat Pancakes and Waffles and I knew right then and there I had to try it. This recipe definitely lived up to its first impression...the results were seriously good. I did make a few changes to suit my needs, but I followed her recipe as a guideline. Confession: I still hate using my waffle iron, but I must admit that I'll probably be doing it a bit more now that I have this recipe. They are that good.

Whole Wheat Waffles

adapted from Darcy's Kitchen Kapers
(makes 16 little or 4- 4 square waffles)

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbls ground flax seed
2 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 eggs

In large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients.

Add remaining ingredients; beat (or stir) just until large lumps disappear.

Heat waffle iron. Follow instructions above for mixing ingredients together. Bake in hot waffle iron until steaming stops (my waffle iron has a light that tells me when it is done) and waffle is done to a golden brown.

There you have it...simple, wholesome waffles. What more can you ask for in recipe?

DarcyLee has an awesome looking recipe for White Chili as well as a scrumptious looking Lemon Greek Chicken that I'm dying to try. Head over to see what she's been whipping up. If the waffles are any indication, you'll love her recipes.

This recipe sounds really good and I like that it is whole wheat. Who doesn't need something a little more nutritious in their lives.
