Whole Wheat Waffles.

Pancakes on a Saturday morning is quintessential to my childhood. However, I personally prefer waffles over pancakes. One of our friends even celebrate "waffle fest" on Saturday mornings. This family has a wide range of waffle makers including Scooby Doo, a circus set, Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, and many more. With all those shapes, it makes for a super fun meal for both young and old kids to enjoy. I tried to put a healthier spin on our regular waffle recipe by adding whole wheat flour to the recipe. You can also replace the melted butter with olive oil and the sugar with Agave Nectar if you'd like to push this recipe toward healthy a little more. The original recipe comes out of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.

Whole Wheat Waffles

2 C         Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 C   All Purpose Flour
4 T         Sugar
2 T         Baking Powder
1/2 tsp    Salt
4            Eggs
3 1/2 C  Milk
1 C        Melted Butter
2 tsp     Vanilla

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour appropriate amount onto a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron. (To grease our waffle irons we use olive oil cooking spray.) Bake according to manufacturer's directions. Use a fork to remove waffle from iron. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm. 

I like to make large batches of waffles to keep in the freezer for mornings when we are short on time. It makes for a quick and easy breakfast to grab two waffles out of the freezer and stick them into the toaster to reheat them.
