Wheat Waffles

The nutty whole wheat taste comes through in these delicious waffles. Crispy and light with a subtle orange flavor, they make an appealing breakfast or supper when served with sausage. Topped with your favorite fruit and whipped cream, they even make a satisfying dessert. -Phyllis Herlocker, Farlington, Kansas

    We make this every time we have waffles because they are so good and healthy as well!

    I love the fact that I can use all whole wheat flour in this recipe and the waffles turn out fluffy and delicious every time. I don't usually have grated orange peel on hand, so I have never used that in the recipe, but they are amazing without it. There is one more thing I will mention: I never seem to be able to get five waffles out of this recipe. Usually it is only about three.

    I have a very picky 4 year old, a heath nut 6 year old so it is hard trying to find something that they both like. This won them both over! They LOVED it!!

    This was the first recipe I tried with my new waffle iron and they turned out light and fluffy, not to mention delicious! I even froze the leftover waffles.
