Whole Wheat & Oat Waffles w/ Blueberries

Waffles mark the presence of weekends in our house. They are a guilty pleasure of mine and can usually be found swimming in maple syrup...the real kind (after all, it would be un-Canadian of me not to). So when I received an email recipe, with what I would classify a 'healthy' waffle, I thought I would give it a shot...GASP, mid-week!

The waffle maker is a relatively new kitchen appliance in our home. Up until then I relied on restaurants like Cora's, to supply me with my weekly waffle fix. This new addition is an absolute gem. It is my second favourite in the kitchen, right behind my Artisan mixer, which has made my life infinitely easier. Gone are the days of the handheld mixer with only one speed. But that's another story...back to the waffles!

These waffles are delicious, and higher in fiber thanks to the whole wheat flour and oats. They are also low in fat, given the butter to applesauce substitution. It makes eating more than one of these a little easier on my conscious. Thursdays, have now been renamed to Waffle Day! I know my little boy shares my enthusiasm in this. (As for the husband, well, he gets the leftovers, which freeze well and can be reheated)

Happy Waffling!


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
