whole wheat buttermilk waffles

27 Aug

My son starts tackle football today, which he’s been waiting for years to play. I haven’t been waiting, per se; it kind of sneaked up on me, to tell the truth. We agreed that my little guy would play touch football only until 8th grade. Well, my little guy is 5’10”, 145 lbs and wears bigger shoes than his father. And he starts 8th grade tomorrow. I thought there would be plenty of time before this day came.

I guess my time is up.

He loves breakfast, so these waffles are a great start to his day. They can also be frozen for days when you don’t have as much time in the morning. Like when you are rushing around trying to find signed permission slips and mouthguards. Just let the waffles cool, then freeze them in ziplock freezer bags. Warm them up in the toaster oven or a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes.

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles

  • 1 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
    Mix white whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg substitute, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla until smooth.  Add liquid mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined (it will be lumpy).  Ladle into waffle maker and cook according to directions.
    Recipe from September/October Weight Watchers Magazine.
    Each waffle (using 1/2 cup batter) had 3 PointsPlus.

    I used to make whole wheat waffles for my boys when they were teens. That was the only way I could fill them up without standing in front of the waffle iron making waffles for a very long time.
