Easy Whole Wheat Waffles

These whole wheat waffles are delicious and easy to make. As a bonus, they are also higher in fiber and have less fat than regular waffles! (This recipe is adapted from the Waffle recipe in Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book, copyright 1989)

To make your waffles even healthier, use organic flour, pasture raised eggs, and homemade applesauce. Top your waffles with real maple syrup, homemade jam, applesauce, or pie filling for a special breakfast.

Whole Wheat Waffles

  • 2 cups unbleached or pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • oil to grease waffle iron


Preheat waffle iron. Use a heat proof pastry brush to coat waffle iron with vegetable oil.

Sift together dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

In separate bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add milk, applesauce, and vegetable oil to eggs and combine.

When waffle iron is hot, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine. There may be lumps in batter. Do not beat batter to remove lumps.

Pour batter onto waffle iron and close iron. Bake until browned and remove from iron. Lightly grease waffle iron between waffles as needed. Repeat until batter is gone.

Recipe makes approximately 8 large waffles.

Note: You may replace all of vegetable oil with applesauce for a lower fat waffle.
