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.

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.
