- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup wheat germ
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter, melted
Preheat waffle iron to desired browning setting. Spray waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until combined. Don’t overmix.
Pour ½ – 3/4 cup batter into center of hot waffle iron and close the lid. For best results, do not open waffle maker during cooking process. Cook until golden-brown and crisp, or until the light illuminates, indicating the waffle is done, 2 – 5 minutes.
Remove waffle carefully and repeat with remaining batter. The waffles may be kept warm until serving by arranging on a rack placed on a cookie sheet in a 200°F oven. Serve hot waffles with fresh fruit, jam, confectioners’ sugar, warm syrup, whipped cream or fried chicken strips.
