Homemade Whole Grain Waffles

What is not to love about waffles?  Waffles are delicious and you can customize them in oh so many ways.  It is easy to make your very own organic whole grain waffles at home for a fraction of the price that you would spend buying them in the store and they are great for freezing so that you can pop them in the toaster oven on busy or lazy mornings.

This whole grain waffle recipe is very basic and allows you to shake it up by adding different mix-ins or toppings.  Most days we enjoy basic whole grain waffles but every now and then we enjoy adding berries or cacao nibs to our waffles and it is very easy to get carried away adding toppings!  I typically double this recipe and freeze the leftovers allowing me to enjoy not cooking on several future mornings (yay!).

If you are making a bulk batch here are a few tips for storage:

I try to cook the waffles that I will be saving for later for a bit less time so that they will be a bit softer, this is so they don’t get too crunchy when re-heating in the toaster oven.

I freeze them in glass Pyrex containers with a cloth napkin between each one so they don’t freeze together, this makes it a lot easier when grabbing them from the freezer to re-heat.
