^that is what you get when you ask your spouse who’s mouth is full of ice cream to “quick, think up a clever title with the word waffle in it”. He’s taken ladies. He’s alllllllll mine.
So, ordinarily, little man Jack is not a fan of waffles. Let’s add that to the list of traditional toddler things my weird child won’t eat (ketchup, ranch, fries, etc.). But, on Sunday morning I really wanted waffles and that’s that.
Whole Wheat Waffles
A hearty and filling batch of whole wheat waffles to start your day off on the right foot.
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp vital wheat gluten
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil or butter
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients, whisking well.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet. Whisk to combine, without over mixing. Allow to sit for 10 minutes while you preheat the waffle iron. Don't rush this step, as resting the batter allows it to develop the air bubbles that will create a fluffy product.
Make waffles according to your waffle maker's instructions.
This is the only photo I got. I gave Jack his waffle quarter and said “hold on, mommy needs to go get her camera”. Came back to this.
The plastic pizza and potato chip are his current scoops of choice for eating applesauce. Yep. For reals.
