Whole Wheat Blueberry Waffles

After our ice storm on Friday night, there is only one meal that is appropriate to enjoy while staring into a backyard “winter wonderland.”

Usually the hubs give a slight grumble when I bake things with whole wheat flour. So when he came into the kitchen and saw the whole wheat flour out, I received a low, but quiet, grumble.  When all was said, done, and happily resting inside our stomachs, he goes “I would’ve never known those were made with whole wheat flour if I hadn’t had seen it.”

Score! Success!

This recipe is super easy and delicious! The recipe creates a perfectly crispy shell, with a warm and moist inside that leaves you begging for more.

Ingredients:

1.5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp  sea salt
3 tbsp raw sugar
5 tbsp butter, melted (so worth it! 🙂
1.5 cups lukewarm milk
1 large egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp orange juice, fresh
1/2 cup – 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Directions: 
1. Mix dry ingredients together.

3. Stir just until mixed, careful to not over-stir.

4. Fold in the blueberries.

5. Place into a greased waffle maker. My waffle maker shows a “green light” when finished…so I don’t know the exact time…. but I would guess about 5-7 minutes.

6.  Drizzle with fresh blueberries and maple syrup.
