Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles

This past weekend was the first weekend all summer we woke up Sunday morning with no plans. So I decided to try my luck at making home made waffles and home made blueberry syrup. (ok the real reason I made my own syrup is because I forgot to buy it at the store.. but it actually turned out great). The waffles were very light and fluffy and the syrup was super easy and tasted like we bought it at a farmers market. We will definately be making this recipe again!

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles
Prep 10 mins Cook 30 mins Serves 8

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 cup fat free egg substitute (I used egg beaters)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
  2. Mix whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, egg substitute, brown sugar, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth, Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined (mixture will be lumpy).
  3. When waffle iron is hot ladle 1/2 cup batter onto surface until golden (3-5 mins). Repeat with remaining batter to make a total of 8 waffles.
  4. When waffles are cooled, divide between 2 large zip - close plastic freezer bags. Squeeze out air to seal bags. Freeze up to one month. To serve, transfer 1 frozen waffle to rack in preheated 350 degree oven or toaster oven. Bake until heated through, about 5 mins.
Per serving- (1 waffle w/o syrup) 170 cal, 3g fat, 3g fiber, Points Value 3
