We love waffles in our house. When I make them, I often double to quadruple the recipe and freeze them for future breakfasts. They’re easy to reheat in the toaster, and make a quick and healthy breakfast. We especially like these made with spelt flour!
1 3/4 cup wheat flour (2 cups spelt)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil*
1 tsp vanilla
Mix wet and dry ingredients. Cook in waffle maker according to your waffle maker’s instructions. Once cooked and cooled on a cooling rack, they freeze well. Reheat in toaster.
We enjoy eating our waffles with real maple syrup, apple sauce, or peanut butter. My young son likes to eat them plain for a snack!
* Replace all or some of the oil with apple sauce, and/or flax seeds. For example, 1/4 cup apple sauce, 1/8 cup ground flax seeds, 1/4 cup oil. Heathy and yummy alternative!
Additional note: I find these cook best if I spread the dough in the waffle maker instead of dumping it all in one glob. This way it takes less dough, leaves more room for it to rise, and creates fluffier waffles.
Starting from this batter, try Chocolate Waffles!
