The BEST Whole Wheat Waffles!

Balanced ingredients make for a waffle that's as tasty as it is healthy!

Whole wheat waffle recipe

As many of you may know, brunch is my favorite meal of the day! And while I love a traditional white flour waffle, I'm trying to incorporate more nutritious food/ingredients into my day-to-day eating. I found this Whole Wheat Waffle recipe years ago, and I can honestly say it's the best one I've tried yet! A mixture of whole wheat, flax seed, wheat germ, and regular flour make for well balanced flavor in this waffle. It's not dry, as it calls for applesauce (even a mushy banana will do), and it bakes just as well as a regular waffle. So if you're looking to enhance your waffle game, this recipe has you set!

Whole Wheat Waffles


  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 3/4 cups skim milk

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or mashed banana)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal

  • 1/4 cup wheat germ

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat pastry flour, flax seed meal, wheat germ, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth.

  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown

Lafaci Tip: I like to separate out the egg whites from the yolks, whip the egg whites, and then gently incorporate them into the batter for a fluffier waffle. This recipe first originated on Allrecipes here.
