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.

  • 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.
