Wheat Waffles

Yummy Saturday Morning Waffles!
As a very newly married couple, I am proud to say we have already established a family tradition: Saturday morning waffles and family devotion.

Since our very first Saturday in our new home, we have been taking advantage of our waffle maker (why, yes it was a wedding present) with an awesome recipe that we tweaked from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." (which, by the way, is a great cookbook but is even better as a great teaching tool on the basics of cooking.  I am happy to report my husband has made wonderful use of it.)

Our Saturday mornings start out with us getting to use two of our favorite appliances.

LOOOVE my Kitchen Aid!

Healthy, Yummy, Wheat Waffles

1/2 cup whole wheat all purpose flour
1/2 cup white all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup of yogurt thinned with 1/8 cup of milk
1 egg, separated
2 tablespoons butter

Combine the dry ingrediants in a large bowl.  In another bowl wisk the yogurt with milk and egg yolk.  Stir the butter into this mix. Combine all the ingredients. Then, in a separate bowl, beat the egg white until it holds soft peaks.  Fold these into the batter.
Brush the preheated waffle iron with a neutral oil (we use grapeseed oil).  Pour 1/3 to 1/2 of the batter into the waffle iron. When the iron is finished (3-5 minutes), enjoy soft, golden waffles.
*We divide our batter to make 3 waffles, we learned the hard way not to overfill your waffle iron*

Top Waffles with honey, agave, or just good ole fashioned Maple Syrup!

Bon App├ętit!
