These whole-wheat waffles -- recipe courtesy of art director Anduin Havens -- are an irresistible family breakfast you'll want to make again and again.


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon plus ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon plus pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

  • ¼ cup plus 1 ½ teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 5 large eggs

  • 2 cups milk, plus more as needed

  • 1 ½ 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.
