Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups King Arthur 100% White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil

Tips from our bakers

  • If you or your family are very sensitive to whole wheat's sometimes assertive flavor, try substituting 2 tablespoons orange juice for 2 tablespoons of the milk in this recipe. The OJ tames whole wheat's potentially tannic taste, without adding any citrus flavor of its own.

Directions

see this recipe's blog »

1) Preheat your iron while you make the waffle batter.

2) Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

3) In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter or oil.

4) Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy; that's OK.

5) Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.

Yield: 3 1/2 round Belgian-style (deep-pocket) 7" waffles.

  • Absolutely loved these waffles! To me they tasted better than the all-purpose flour version that we make and it made me feel good that I was eating something healthy! Instead of the american whole wheat flour I used Indian whole wheat flour (what we call atta), so I was a little apprehensive about how it would turn out; but I was deliciously surprised :)

  • I make these all the time and they are delicious! I am planning a brunch for Easter and I would like to know if I can make these ahead of time and freeze them then reheat in the oven before serving? Has anyone tried this?

  • This is a huge hit at my house with adults and kids. It's hard to believe it's 100% whole wheat - it's so light and crispy. I love it - thank you!

  • This recipe makes for a delicious and crispy waffle! I made the gingerbread waffle recipe on Christmas Day and though I loved the gingerbread flavor, the waffle was not as crisp. This waffle however is awesome. And I'm a whole wheat lover so have no problem with the flavor! Will definitely be making these again (after I finish the ones up in the freezer!)

  • Great recipe. I used fresh ground whole wheat flour and used almond milk since that was what I had on hand. These turned out really nutty tasting. Definitely will make again.
