Four-Grain Waffles

  • Yield: 6 servings


-- 1 cup nonfat buttermilk
-- 1 large whole egg
-- 1 large egg white
-- 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
-- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
-- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
-- 1/4 cup cornmeal
-- 1/3 cup rolled oats
-- 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
-- 2 tbsp sugar



1. Combine the buttermilk, whole egg, egg white, and oil in a large bowl.

2. Combine the flours, cornmeal, rolled oats, baking powder, and sugar in a separate bowl.

3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until moistened.

4. Preheat the waffle iron to medium-high. Lightly spray it with vegetable oil. Pour about ¾ cup of the batter onto the waffle iron and cook until the waffles are crisp, golden, and cooked through, 3 to 6 minutes per waffle.

*If you don’t have buttermilk, you can sour regular milk by adding 1 tablespoon of either lemon juice or white vinegar to 1 cup of warmed milk. Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before using.
