Crispy, Delicious Whole Wheat Waffles

There’s nothing better than a leisurely weekend breakfast at home with the family.  I love everyone gathered around the kitchen counter, laughing and sharing about their week and enjoying a hot, delicious breakfast or brunch, together.  Providing the highest quality whole grain products has become even easier, since adding a WonderMill grain mill to my kitchen.  Having access to freshly ground flour for all my recipes at Busy-at-Home has always been a dream.  Now that I can, I’m a die-hard convert.  I love having fresh-milled flour available for every recipe I create!

Homemade Whole Wheat Waffles

Crispy outside, tender inside and loaded with nutrition for your family!

Milling my flour, with the WonderMill, at the time I need to use it, means I get to use it at the peak of its nutritional value.  Plus, I can grind my flour to the consistency that is most appealing to my family.  A husband who agrees to eat whole grain because he loves me, but prefers the soft, smooth texture of white bread (ick!), means I need whole grain flours that can produce something close to the texture that he enjoys.

freshly milled flour

I love that I can mill fresh, whole grain flour at home with the WonderMill! In minutes, I can be certain that I have the most nutritious and flavorful flour possible for my family’s baked goods.

It’s fantastic that the WonderMill has texture settings for Coarse, Bread and Pastry.  The very fine flour I can grind using the pastry setting has been perfect for winning over my “white bread” husband to the healthy taste and nutrition of whole grain baked goods.  These waffles were one of the first things I tried and an instant favorite for him.  He even whips up this simple recipe, himself, once in a while.  I think your family will enjoy it, too!

Einkorn wheat pastry flour

Fine, fresh whole wheat pastry flour milled from Einkorn wheat berries. If you haven’t tried Einkorn wheat, I can highly recommend it. It’s known to be one of the first forms of wheat cultivated by humans.
