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.
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.
Stir egg mixture into flour mixture and mix until just combined.
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).
Serve with strawberries, a dollop of yogurt, and a drizzle of syrup.
Griddle Alert No waffle maker? No problem. This foolproof whole-grain waffle recipe also makes killer pancakes.
