This waffle recipe is my healthier variation that I've been serving my family for at least the past year and they never noticed the transition. It tastes great topped with my Simple Blueberry Sauce. I usually serve this with a higher protein food, such as nitrate-free bacon. For a meatless way to increase protein, spread your waffles with 1/4 cup Greek yogurt that has been lightly sweetened with 1-2 teaspoons honey and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unbleached whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, divide yolks and whites
1 3/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon canola oil
Yield: about 6 large waffles
Serving Size: about 1/2 waffle (2 squares)
Allergen Info: contains wheat, eggs, dairy
