3 Grain Waffles

16 Mar

Before I had kids, I was a chef.  I ran the kitchen at an old mansion turned restaurant  for breakfast and lunch .  Our big deal was waffles, and not  your ordinary waffle.   A huge Belgian waffle,  piled high with strawberries, fresh fruit, pecans, ice cream, whip cream, or chocolate chips. You could get any of these or all of the above, then top it off with gooey, warm, homemade caramel syrup.  Besides the fresh fruit, there was nothing healthy about these.  At our house, we do these super yummy 3 grain waffles.  I’ll be straight and say the hubby does not approve, but I think the pickiest of kids would like these, mine all love them.  They’re a great finger food for babies babies who are at this stage.   My littlest had nothing to do with baby cereal, these were great for him to get a decent breakfast.  I make a double batch,what we don’t eat goes into  Tupperware or Ziplock and into the freezer, pull one out when I need one and stick it in the toaster and that works for me!

3 Grain Waffles

Mix:

1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 C Unbleached All Purpose Flour

1/4 C rolled oats

2 TBS  ground flax seed

1 tsp baking soda

pinch salt

Then add:

1-1/4 Cups low-fat buttermilk (I usually use regular milk)

2 TBS maple syrup

1 LG Egg, lightly beaten

1 TBS canola oil

1 tsp vanilla

Mix together and let set a couple minutes.  Cook according to your waffle makers directions.  This recipe also makes great pancakes.   Serve with butter  and maple syrup, or Strawberries and Chocolate Chips, or Whip Cream, or…..you get the picture.
