Waffles are fun food at our house. I often serve them with fruit and whipped cream or just butter and maple syrup. The kids have been known to spread Nutella on them.

And we’re not too shy to just gobble them down plain.

I love my waffle maker. It makes four waffles at one time, making it easy to feed my crowd. Who wants to stand around waiting for waffles to cook?

This batch makes 8 individual servings. My kids prefer it when I make a double batch. I prefer it when I make lots and freeze the extras.

This is a pretty straightforward recipe. You can use buttermilk or mix half yogurt and half milk and use that for the buttermilk. I do that often since a lot of my favorite stores don’t often have buttermilk in stock.

I don’t know what’s wrong with them. But, half yogurt/half milk works well as a substitute for me.

Feel free to prepare the dry ingredients as a mix and stash it in the freezer. Until you do it, you won’t realize what a boon it is to have homemade baking mixes on hand.

  1. Hi
    The easy way to make Buttermilk at home is Just take two cup of Milk and add two tablespoons of vinegar leave it 15 minutes and you will have buttermilk right in your house. Whenever I make banana cake and need buttermilk I do the same method and cake taste great. Just give a try.

    • Yes, that does work, though I find that it leaves the liquid thinner than buttermilk. Mixing in yogurt seems to give me a better texture.

  2. G’day! I LOVE waffles and used to have a Mickey Mouse waffle maker, true!
    Oatmeal…yum and healthier waffles too!
    Cheers! Joanne

    What brand of waffle maker would you recommend?

    Ooo – I love a new recipe!
    I’ve noticed most waffle/pancake recipes don’t include sugar (probably because of all the pending syrup?). I’ve found adding 1 tablespoon turns up the browning and makes them crisper right out of the iron. Looking forward to adding this to our rotation!

    • Most of my waffle and pancake recipes do have some sugar, but I omitted it from this one since I’m personally trying to reduce my processed sugar. I have a sweet tooth and I’m trying to wean myself. 🙂

    Made these yesterday to use up some buttermilk that was hanging out in the fridge- delicious! My kids devoured them and didn’t even realize they were eating whole grains. This recipe is a keeper!

    Haven’t tried it out yet, but reading over the recipe I noticed it doesn’t specify mixing dry ingredients together before adding them to the wet. Is it really “combine in the order listed”? It seems like they’d get overmixed by combining each ingredient as it is added to the previous.

    • It seems that way. But it always works out. If you feel better whisking the dry together, feel free to do so.

    Can I use AP flour? I don’t have WWPF on hand.

    • Sure. It will have a lighter texture.

        I went and bough the Whole Wheat Flour today so that these waffles will have good fiber and last longer in the tummy for the little one. I made up 3 dry batches and will make up some waffles tomorrow if all goes well. Thanks for the recipe.

    We made a double batch of these this weekend with gluten free flour – they turned out great! I made the mix earlier in the week and the husband put the batter together and made the waffles (using half yogurt, half milk). They are very hearty and I wasn’t even that hungry at lunch time. He made a few as is then added frozen blueberries to the rest. I had the blueberry ones that day and the next day had some of both – the plain ones seemed better reheated, but both were great. Will definitely make again and be making up this mix.

    Yay! I’m having a new waffle maker delivered tomorrow, and this recipe will be the first one I try. This is a first small step in giving my family healthier foods – this will get my kids off frozen waffles for breakfast! I’ll be making lots & freezing them. Look forward to trying your other waffle recipes too.

    • Yay! So glad that will work for you. I might just assign that job to my daughter tomorrow while I do freezer cooking. She would love it.


  1. […] I can I throw some oats into the mix, too, slipping them into pancake batter, waffles, and streusel […]
