      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Whole Grain Waffles

8 posts in this topic

I am a waffle lover! Sadly, they are a study in poor nutrition in their conventional form...I found this recipe on the back of the box ages ago...Made a couple of minor changes and Voila! Waffles with 10g of fiber and 200 cal per serving (depending on what you top them with

High Fiber Waffles

1 cup Fiber One™ original bran cereal (I use the store brand)

1 1/4 cups buttermilk 

1 egg, slightly beaten

2 tablespoons vegetable oil 

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Serve with nut butters, jam, butter & syrup or fruit sauces & nuts

xpert Tips

·         Heat waffle maker. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).

·         In large bowl, mix cereal and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in egg, oil and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients just until smooth. (Batter will be thick.)

·         For each waffle, brush hot waffle maker with vegetable oil or spray with nonstick stuff. Spread batter onto center of hot waffle maker. (Waffle makers vary in size; check manufacturer's directions for recommended amount of batter.) Close lid of waffle maker.

·         Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown. Carefully remove waffle. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining batter.  Top as desired.

 

I    I usually triple everything so I have these in the freezer to pop into the toaster on work days. ½ a waffle is a whole serving. These are very filling. To freeze, wrap in waxed paper or freezer paper in a ziplock freezer bag...Don't know how long they keep in the freezer...don't last that long.

Sounds great! Just one question, have you ever added freeze dried blueberries to the batter?

And for the uber health nuts or those with dairy issues:

So, you may want to experiment, try using 2 egg whites instead of an egg to cut cholesterol (beat to soft peaks, add to batter last for making a lighter texture), replace the cereal with Bob's wheat germ BRAN or wheat germ/wheat bran mix (to get rid of processed cereal), replace buttermilk with skim milk and 1-2T vinegar (room temp) or use nut milk or soy milk. King Arthur flours have great texture.

We use pancake and waffle recipes interchangeably.

Beings pancakes are quicker to cook in quantity, if time matters, pancakes could be made instead. Freeze and re-heat well.

After TG, enough leftover turkey to feed a village, we usually make creamed turkey on waffles at least once. Healthy, easy, frugal.

The amend the flour choice in the waffle recipe to 1/2 corn flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour for a more savory products...corn meal instead of the corn flour will give a more unique texture.
