I probably wouldn’t call any waffle recipe healthy. But as far as waffle recipes go, this buttermilk waffle recipe is probably one of the healthier ones.
Many waffles are made with butter, while this one is made with canola oil, which is a healthier fat.
Also, these waffles call for half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour, which bumps up the nutrient and fiber content while preserving the traditional waffle flavor.
- 2 large eggs
- 1½ cup buttermilk
- ½ cup canola oil
- 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cups all purpose flour
- ¾ cups whole wheat flour (all purpose flour could be substituted for whole wheat flour)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. Add the oil and vanilla and whisk to combine.
- In a large bowl, stir together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir just until all the flour moistened. Batter may be lumpy.
- Once the batter is prepared, let it rest at room temperature while a waffle iron preheats. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Add the batter to the waffle iron and cook according to the manufacturers directions (usually around 3 minutes). Serve warm.
