Who doesn’t like waffles! There are endless ways to make and serve waffles! Rather than make an omelet in a pan, put the mix in the waffle iron – you’ll see how much better it tastes just because it looks like a waffle!
I usually make a double batch of this recipe so I can freeze them as my winner waffles are in high demand at our house, not only for breakfast but as a snack! 🙂
This recipe makes 5-7 Belgian-style waffles.
The number of waffles the recipe makes will vary depending on the size of your waffle iron.
This super easy recipe will replace the need to purchase pre-made mixes!
It’s amazing – my family love them so much that they often eat them plain! My favorite toppings are wild blueberry jam, strawberry jam or sliced organic banana, walnuts and maple syrup. What’s your favorite waffle topping?
I do not specify calories, nutritional info as I often change out ingredients based on what I have on hand, which makes life easier.
- 1 ¾ C. flour (I use ½ C. organic oat flour and ½ C. organic all-purpose flour sometimes when I have oat flour to add a bit of heart-healthy oats). (also, feel free to use gluten free flour or gluten free oat flour).
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder***
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 ¾ C. milk (feel free to use oat milk, almond milk, flax milk, etc. instead). Today I used oat milk, grass-fed 2% milk and flax milk and they turned out perfect!
- 2 large eggs (or vegan egg replacement)
- ½ C. melted butter (dairy based and vegan work fine in this recipe)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl. In another bowl, beat the milk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract. Pour the milk mixture over the dry mixture and stir with a spoon until combined (no lumps). I let it sit for 10 min while the waffle iron is heating up to let the baking powder activate.
Pour or spoon enough batter to cover about 2/3 of the surface. The rest will spread after you close the top. My waffle iron cooks two at a time so I have two measuring cups filled to ½ cup so they are ready to go at the same time. One way to tell that the waffles are done (without opening the top) is when the steam has stopped coming out the sides.
I usually multi-task, so I am actually prepping the veggies and ingredients for my Gorgeous Green Juice Recipe while each set of waffles is baking. I also like to keep cleaning up as I go so that I don’t end up with a mess to clean up at the end.
Ta-daaaah! Now have fun choosing your topping(s)!
