Waffles are one of those breakfast foods that I used to save for weekends. My desire to turn them into a “special occasion” breakfast food stems from the fact that growing up, it was rare that we had waffles for breakfast. And when we did have them, we all knew that our old-school waffle iron was time consuming to use and difficult to clean (we had a stovetop waffle iron in addition to a plug-in version that did not, in hindsight, work particularly well). These days, I have a much better waffle maker in my kitchen and know that waffles are an excellent choice for breakfast any day of the week – particularly if you’re making a relatively healthy batch of waffles, like these Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles that I’m sharing over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!!).
These waffles are surprisingly light, given that they’re made with only whole wheat flour, with a crisp exterior and a tender interior. The whole wheat flour gives the waffles a slightly nutty flavor that, in my opinion, makes them pair even better with maple syrup than your average waffle recipe. You’ll be able to put the batter together in just a few minutes, which means that even on a busy morning, you can be enjoying fresh waffles in no time at all.
