Ahh, I love Saturdays. It's the one day that we're all off and home together. We always start the weekend with a big, yummy breakfast. On the menu today: homemade whole-grain waffles.
I love my family for having put up with my attempts to feed them healthier. While we had great success with Bob's Red Mill Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix, my husband continually asked for something more traditional-tasting; something lighter, fluffy, and golden-brown. After some research, we turned again to Bob's Red Mill, and ordered a case of their Organic 7-Grain Pancake and Waffle Mix.
Each package has simple instructions for turning out the most delicious pancakes or waffles. Waffles were the goal today, so I plugged in our beloved Cuisinart waffle iron, put it on setting #4, and prepared the mix. How easy is this:
- 1 cup of mix
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup milk (we used almond milk, to keep this dairy-free for me)
Mix it all up, and drop a couple ice-cream scoops of the thick batter onto your preheated, lightly-greased waffle iron. A few minutes later, we were enjoying the most delicious homemade waffles! These came out so big and fluffy. The picky eaters in the house didn't even bat an eyelash at the whole-grain content. Mission accomplished ;) Paired with some turkey bacon, these were a hit! My pickiest eater even asked for seconds. This is definitely another pantry staple :)
