Wednesday Waffles

redbiscuit 1

"We love to serve these on Waffle Wednesdays for dinner or for large group gatherings. These are high in fiber and flavor with whole wheat flour, flax seed meal, and wheat germ, and are quite delicious and filling. Serve with homemade blueberry syrup, butter syrup, yogurt, peanut butter and honey, or fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Make a huge batch with a mixer and freeze the uneaten waffles for easy weeknight meals or quick and hearty breakfast warmed and crisped in the toaster."

I cut this recipe back to twelve servings. I did not have canola oil, I substituted vegetable oil. I also used a homemade applesauce and regular whole wheat flour as I did not have pastry flour. I used a 1/4 cup dry measuring cup to drop the batter onto my waffle iron, mine is smaller and 1/2 cup batter for each square is too much for mine. These cooked up fluffy, thick with a nice chewy interior and a crunchy outside. The flavor was amazing--I've never had waffles like this before. I served this with a homemade maple-vanilla syrup and the whole family inhaled them. This recipe's a keeper. NOTE: Even halved, this made a TON of waffles. Keep that in mind when you make this, if you don't have a large family--be prepared to freeze a few.


Fantastic! Made 1/4 batch and made six large waffles. Subbed in melted coconut oil and some flax and sunflower seed. Yummy.

I cut down the portions on this recipe and it still made a ton. this seems like restaurant recipe proportions to me. It makes a ton. The flavor was good. I subbed in some oatmeal for the flax since I didn't have 2 cups on hand. These are very filling waffles. We topped them with strawberries and banana. I will file this one away.
