Whole Grain Waffles

I recently had the opportunity to try out a Nutrimill Grain Grinder at my Aunt's house. She allowed me and my good friend to use HER grain and her grinder to make whole wheat flour. I had never baked with fresh whole wheat flour and was a little apprehensive about it. I couldn't find any recipes that said it specifically used fresh whole wheat flour. I decided to use the flour and make waffles. I used the following recipe. You can make this recipe using normal all-purpose flour, that how I normally would make the recipe. I just used freshly ground soft wheat flour instead and decreased the milk by 2 TBS. I ate this waffle recipe my WHOLE life and honestly thing it taste better with the fresh whole wheat flour! Click here to see the nutrional benefits of fresh milled flour. Goes great with my Brown Sugar Bacon.

Whole Grain Waffles

  1. These sound wonderful. I'll make them this morning, but I have no wheat to grind (reminds me of the story of the Little Red Hen!) so I'll just make them from whole wheat flour. Does your Aunt grown her own wheat?

  2. no, my aunt doesn't grow her own wheat (that would be cool though!) she gets her grain from a co-op that buys it from a farm in montana!

  3. I love love love waffles!!! I'm going to try your recipe soon! How cool was it to grind your own flour? I would love to do that.


  4. These were wonderful. I used buttermilk, and added a bit of baking soda. Yum! Thank you for the inspiration.

  5. Yum! I love waffles and whole wheat is surely a good idea to make them! :) I just hope we had wheat readily available here.

  6. These look very good. I'd have to use my gluten free flour blend in place, but I think it work just fine. I'm going to have to learn how to freeze waffles -- it's so much cheaper than buying them in the store -- and no preservatives.

    Thanks for linking up. And blessings on your weekend.
