Whole-Grain Waffles with Sliced Strawberries and Yogurt

This recipe uses only a handful of baking ingredients and is sure to become your back-pocket breakfast (and not just on weekends). The batter whisks up so light, it's hard to believe the waffles (or pancakes) are fully whole wheat.

  • 2 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • Maple syrup, for drizzling

Cook's Note

Griddle Alert
No waffle maker? No problem. This foolproof whole-grain waffle recipe also makes killer pancakes.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg, and vanilla.

  2. Step 2

    Stir egg mixture into flour mixture and mix until just combined.

  3. Step 3

    Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. For deep, Belgian-style waffles, fill each cavity with 1/2 cup batter and cook until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes (or according to manufacturer's instructions).

  4. Step 4

    Serve with strawberries, a dollop of yogurt, and a drizzle of syrup.
