Nutty whole grain waffles

This is the recipe out of the book that came with my new waffle iron. I have had a cheap round waffle maker since I got married, and it finally bit the dust about a month ago. It has been a great waffle iron for as cheap of a model as it was, but I wanted something nicer now that we were getting a new one. I also wanted square so that they could be easily heated in the toaster. I ended up buying a Calphalon. I've only used it the once, but I love it. It beeps when it is ready, I can set the amount of browning I want, and it beeps when it is done. Although somehow on the very first waffle it didn't manage to beep. (or more likely I didn't manage to hear it. I left it in thinking the little light would continue to go up on the darkness meter, but it didn't and I ended up with a pretty crispy waffle. Luckily Tavio loved it that way.) The recipe was good. I just like my other waffle recipe better. This recipe also had a berry topping which I didn't try. (I guess I ought to it looks good.) The picture has a burned waffle, and a nice medium waffle. I also thought it a bit odd that the recipe makes about 3 cups of batter since the waffle maker uses 2 cups for 1 batch. Tavio only ate 2 pieces and was full. I'm happy because it is much quicker to make them that way. It find it to be a cross between a Belgian and regular waffle. I think the holes are deeper than normal, but not as deep as a Belgian. I also think the spaces between the wholes are a lot wider than a Belgian making it a heartier waffle. I like that for the filling up the kids factor.

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow corn meal
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon satl
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup plain low fat yogurt (I used sour cream because that is what I had)
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. In another bowl combine the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and stir until thick and smooth. Bake in waffle iron.
