9 of the Best Whole Wheat Waffles
Some have things added to the batter like pumpkin and carrots. One of them can be made in the blender, which makes them really easy to make and clean up. I don’t see why they all couldn’t be made in the blender if that’s your thing.
Waffles are really easy to freeze and reheat in the toaster later. After all, how do you think they make Eggos? Just put some wax paper or parchment paper between them before you freeze them. Or put each one in a small sandwich size baggie, then freeze them all in a larger bag.
Use your imagination and put whatever you like on top, especially fruit of any kind is good. I love waffles with fruit and whip cream on top.
My mom used to make them for dinner every once in a while. It was like a treat because we thought we were eating dessert for dinner.
What is your favorite way to eat waffles? What do you like to put on top of them? Does anyone just eat them plain? As for me, I love maple syrup. I can eat anything as long as it has maple syrup on it.

Just put wax paper between the waffles before you freeze them so they won’t stick together. Or you could put each one in a sandwich bag then put them all in a larger zip-lock bag.

9. Saturday Morning Waffles – The Gracious Pantry
Whole Wheat White Flour – Eggs – Milk
These are made with whole wheat white flour. It’s easier to find in stores than whole wheat pastry flour and it’s just as clean eating. Tiffany says you can find it in some stores like Walmart, and Trader Joe’s. This is a plain recipe but you can add any flavorings you’d like to. Tiffany suggests vanilla extract, cocoa powder, orange extract, lemon extract, almond or hazelnut extract.
They are really good with maple syrup and bananas on top. If you aren’t a big maple syrup fan, my mother isn’t. In fact, she actually doesn’t like it at all. You could try some honey instead. I like peanut butter and honey mixed together. Go ahead be creative. What are your favorite toppings?
