Whole-Grain Honeyed Waffles

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

Don't dismiss this recipe as healthy but tasteless because this is probably the best waffle recipe I've tried in a very long time. The texture is not grainy but just right and the flavor of honey and oats make it more like dessert than breakfast. I used oatmeal and threw in some flax seed because I didn't have wheat germ. I also used a local Idaho honey and diluted some whipping cream (maybe that was the secret) and added a splash of vinegar to the diluted milk to make buttermilk. I'll definitely be making these again, and I think I'll throw some fresh fruit on top. This recipe came from Family Circle All-Time Favorite Recipes.

At first these tasty waffles were sticking to my waffle maker even though it is nonstick and I was spraying with olive oil. About halfway through, the problem resolved itself. These were very good and I like the nutrition in them. I used all whole wheat flour and skim milk in place of the buttermilk. I also used applesauce in place of the melted butter to bring down the fat and calorie count. My children ate them up and for that reason I will be making them again! Next time I think some mashed banana or some apple and cinnamon would be great additions. Thanks for the recipe!
