Recently my husband and I have decided to embark on a real food diet. So what does that mean? Well it means we are going to try to eat foods that are not processed or have little processing, organic, and only have ingredients on the label that we can understand. We are hoping to have health benefits from having a better diet that is high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, low in sugar, and relatively no chemicals. It’s been an adventure the last two weeks! I will be blogging about it some here and also posting recipes I am attempting and our review on the taste. If you would like more information on a real food diet here’s a link.
Now on to the recipe! Here is a recipe for whole wheat waffles from 100 Days of Real Food. We thought the waffles tasted great! The only thing I noticed was the batter didn’t taste like it had much sugar, which it didn’t, compared to normal waffle recipes, but once the 100% pure maple syrup was on there you couldn’t tell a difference. Enjoy!
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ¾ cups milk (I have used everything from skim milk to thick buttermilk…so whatever you have on hand should work)
- ¼ cup oil (I used olive oil)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour (I used King Arthur’s organic white whole-wheat flour)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- Warmed 100% pure maple syrup for serving
- Fresh fruit for serving
- Preheat your waffle iron.
- In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, honey, cinnamon, and baking soda until well combined.
- Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together just until the large lumps disappear.
- When the waffle iron is hot, dab it with a little butter and then ladle some batter onto the center of the iron. Follow the instructions that came with your waffle maker to know how long it should be cooked (mine takes about 3 – 4 minutes each).
- Keep waffles warm until you finish cooking all of them. Top with pure maple syrup and fruit. Enjoy!
