Whole Wheat Waffle Recipe
I have seriously fond memories of spending weekends with my Grandma; she would get up early to make us crispy golden waffles and fluffy, cheesy eggs for breakfast. They were the best, and she always used these heavy old vintage waffle irons that now have got to be sixty years old. I had to make up my own whole wheat waffle recipe because my sweet grandma used all-purpose flour ( which is fine), but I wanted a complete wheat version.
I just made a video that shows me using a vintage waffle iron I purchased for five dollars at a thrift store ( much like the one my grandma used ) and how I grind my wheat for this whole wheat waffle recipe. But no problem if you don’t have your wheat grinder; you can always buy whole wheat flour.
Is it hard to grind whole wheat?
No, it’s super easy! However, you do need to invest in a grain grinder. This is the one I use Nutrimill It’s as simple as adding whole grain into the grain grinder hopper, and you have fresh flour. It’s amazing. If you aren’t ready to fall down the rabbit hole of freshly ground wheat at home… No problem, you can order whole wheat online or buy it locally.
So… why not dive into whole wheat by making this super easy whole wheat waffle recipe and try out my whole wheat chocolate cookies too!

We shot a cozy day at home on our Youtube Forgotten Way Farms; I will add it to today’s post! I hope it will get you in the mood to make some whole wheat waffles and have a cozy day at home. I make Daniel his favorite mocha latte in the video with my homemade chocolate syrup recipe here.
Whole Wheat Waffles
- 3 Eggs

- 2/3 cup Butter Melted
- 3 to 3-1/2 cups Milk
- 3 tsp. Baking powder

- 4 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
Mix the eggs, sugar, butter until combined. Add the dry ingredients combine slowly with the milk until you get a smooth batter ready for the waffle iron. Cook on High heat for about 4 mins for a crispy golden waffle—less time for softer ones. Makes a Large batch of waffles. These freeze great, simple toast in the toaster to reheat.
I love to bake, and I always try something new in my kitchen. Filling my pantry with homemade goodness made by my own hands is a big hobby. I get asked where I get things for my cozy kitchen, so here are some links!
