Multi-Grain Waffles

Submitted by: MOXIE6

Introduction

Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indulgence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.

Ingredients

    4 cups lowfat buttermilk (or use a combo of plain yogurt and milk)
    1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    2 cups whole-wheat flour
    2/3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup cornmeal or toasted wheat germ
    1 TB baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3/4 cup egg whites or 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 to 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
    2 tablespoon canola oil
    4 teaspoons vanilla extract



Directions

Preparation
1.Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.
2.Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ or cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
3.Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
4.Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
