We’ve been making these whole wheat blueberry waffles about twice a week for the past few months. We’re a little obsessed with our new waffle maker I guess.

This recipe is everything you want in a waffle; crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s modified from the waffle recipe we found on allrecipes.com. We made the waffles healthy by substituting with whole wheat flour, sea salt, olive oil, honey and of course we added some blueberries. With all these “healthifications” (you’ll know by now I make up words when it seems appropriate), you’ll feel great about serving them to your family.

Ingredients for Whole Wheat Waffles:

2 large eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp fine sea salt or table salt
1 3/4 cups milk (any kind, we use 1%)
1/2 cup olive oil (we use extra light olive oil), canola oil also works well
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp honey
1 cup fresh blueberries (or 1 cup frozen with 1 tsp whole wheat flour)

How to Make Whole Wheat Honey Waffles:

1. Preheat your waffle maker to medium heat. In a large bowl beat 2 eggs on high speed until frothy and bubbly (1 min)

2. Place your sifter over your beaten eggs and sift in your 2 cups flour, 4 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Add the bran that’s left behind in your sifter; this is the oober healthy part of these waffles.

4. In a small bowl, Mix together 1 cup blueberries with 1 tsp whole wheat flour. The flour coating will keep the blueberries from getting juicy. Use a spatula to fold in the frozen blueberries. Try not to over-mix or you’ll start getting blue streaks in your batter.

5. Pour your batter into your preheated waffle almost to the edges (you’ll know if you poured too much if you get batter that leaks out of the sides (put a paper towel underneath just in case). Serve waffles right away or let them rest on a wire rack. Don’t stack them while they are warm or they will become squishy and no one likes squishy waffles.

See that strange hole on the edge of the waffle? That’s how you know they are homemade. What do you love on your waffles?

    You are an absolute genius for the tip to whip the eggs (instead of separating egg whites) which saved me time & effort. I’ve tried several recipes in search for the perfect waffle recipe and assumed a good waffle needed yeast, buttermilk or separated egg whites but your recipe blew them all away. Your waffles turned out perfect.
    Whipping the eggs for 3 mins by mixer in the beginning made all the difference and saved me so much effort. I made a hybrid of your whole wheat & regular waffles (1 cup whole wheat & 1 cup all purpose and it was light, fluffy & crispy. Thank you so much for this recipe!

    This recipe is awesome!!! Thank you!! I added hemp seeds and cinnamon and used brown sugar because I was out of honey and turned out great. I used a mini waffle maker and made 13 waffles . The perfect quick morning snack!
