  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk, plus more as needed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for waffle iron
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving (optional)
  • Blueberries, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat waffle iron. Sift together both flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg three times; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oil and honey. Add eggs, milk, vanilla, and molasses; whisk well to combine. Add flour mixture and stir to combine; mixture should be easily pourable, but not too thick. If mixture seems too thick, add a little more milk.

  3. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup batter into waffle iron. Cook until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Carefully remove waffle from iron and repeat process with remaining batter. Serve immediately.

    I made these for my 1 and 2 yr old this morning. I added about 1/4 cup of sugar to sweeten it a bit. They did have a strong wheat taste so next time i will put more regular flour and less wheat.

    I make homemade pankcakes every Sunday so my answer is yes you do need to change just a couple of things. I only use 2 tsp of baking powder and 2 eggs for a similar recipe. i also substitute 1 cup of plain yogurt for 1 cup of milk for more of a buttermilk taste. I use oat flour instead of the whole wheat flour and add 2 heaping TBL of ground flax seed and 2 scoops of plain whey protein powder for less of a sugar rush. Hope this helps....

    Can you make this recipe into pancakes? Would you need to modify any of the ingredients?
