  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 2 cups milk


  1. Plug in your waffle iron to get it heating. (I love this inexpensive animal waffle maker!)
  2. In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar.  Use a whisk to combine them.
  3. Make a well in the center of your flour mixture and crack the eggs into it, add the melted butter and the milk.  Whisk to combine well.
  4. Ladle into the waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Eat piping hot or keep warm in a 200 degree oven until you are ready to serve.
  6. Delicious with blueberries and freshly whipped cream on top, butter and syrup, jam, or whatever else you enjoy on a waffle.


  • You'll have the best luck if you use a finely ground wheat flour. I have great luck using whole wheat pastry flour (which is very finely ground).
  • I normally use 2% milk for this recipe but have also made it with almond milk with great success. If you'd like to try alternative milks, I think they'd work fine.
