It’s no secret that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. I’ve struggled on and off trying to make sure I start my morning on the right foot with a good filling and nutritious breakfast. The problem is I’m not a morning person. Stay up in to the wee hours of the night? No problem! Get up early enough to have a great breakfast? Problem. What I look for in a great breakfast is something that is quick, easy, and healthy. All too often it’s easy to either skip the meal entirely or grab something that really isn’t doing my body any good.
I got together with some girlfriends for brunch this past weekend and as we were deciding on our menu, I was asked if I had a good waffle recipe. It was then that I realized.. I don’t have ANY waffle recipes! Typically, when I make waffles I usually grab my go-to Kodiak Cakes. As awesome as my 100% Whole Wheat Pancakes are, I knew I needed to also add a good whole wheat waffle recipe to my arsenal as well. These waffles are fantastic! They are super simple to throw together, made without any refined flours or sugars, light, fluffy, and delicious! Could you ask for anything more?
100% Whole Wheat Waffles
- 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 c. lukewarm milk
- 1/3 c. melted coconut oil
Preheat your waffle maker.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, honey, and coconut oil. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy; that's OK.
Ladle batter in to waffle maker and cook the waffles until lightly golden brown.
I used whole wheat pastry four for an even lighter waffle that was absolutely perfect!
