Multi-Grain Waffles

Spring 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (206 votes)

Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indulgence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.

Absolutely delicious!

I followed the recipe as is and they came out great! They look liquidy but don't worry, they'll turn out fine. I can't believe how fewer calories are in this recipe compared to other high-fat sugary waffles. This will be my new go-to recipe.

Healthy waffles without the overwhelming grainy taste

Best Wholemeal waffles I've made!

The first Wholemeal waffles I made were on 100daysofrealfood.com, the website being a favorite of mine, I assumed they would be awesome. They were not. Far too dense and flavorless.
I found these, and while they are a lot of ingredients, they took very little hands-on time. I topped mine with a slight drizzle of raw honey and blueberries. Yum! And sooo much more natural and healthful than traditional store-bought waffles.
Next time some changes I intend to try include:
Subbing light coconut milk for buttermilk
Reducing brown sugar, and not replacing it with another artificial sweetener (read up on the risks of "Splenda," AKA sucrose!)
Using white Wholemeal flour in place of white flour (in case you have never used it, you should. It yields to lighter taste of white flour, but still has the fiber of its healthier counterpart)

Thank you so much for this recipe!

Soft and light, picky little brother and parents love, does not stick to iron
Me being happy because these waffles

My husband is starting Weight Watches and the recipe I had for waffles was 698 calories a serving! So I tried this recipe at 188 calories a serving and I couldn't believe how good it was. It actually was better than the one with almost 700 calories. My husband liked them so much he was calculating if he could afford to have two servings! For those who are on WW, it's 5 points!
