This is one of my all time favorite recipes. A good waffle iron and a batch of super nutritious multi-grain batter makes for the ultimate breakfast. Great for when guests are over and you want to make something mind blowing. I am showing here how to grind your own flour and the amounts of each grain to exactly make the best mix. If you don’t have a grinder, (very sad) I encourage you to get one. It is one of those things you use over and over. You can buy whole grains (very cheaply) and not be reliant on going to the store.
But, if you don’t, which is okay, get multi-grain flour from the health food stores.
2 Cups flour
2 Tbls flax seeds
1 Tbls baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
Grape seed oil (instead of butter)
Fresh cut fruits (banana, peaches, strawberries, blueberries etc.)
FLOUR (grind the following)
Wheat (soft white) 2 cups
Oats 1 cup
Kamut 1/2 cup
Rye 1/2 cup
Spelt 1/2 cup
Corn 1/2 cup
PREHEAT: waffle iron.
MIX: In a large mixing bowl, add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add dry ingredients to the wet and gently stir in with a whisk.
DO NOT over mix. One of the secrets is to mix quick at first till everything is blended, but then stop. Allow the baking powder to raise the batter without beating it down which happens if you mix when the batter is raising.
COOK: Spray waffle iron with non-stick oil, then gently pour enough to make a good waffle. Serve with pure maple syrup.
Note: We recommend using healthy oils on the waffle instead of artery clogging butter. Try it! It is actually better, and better for you! We always use grape seed oil as our favorite. It is the best!
