NBM - Simple Whole Wheat Waffles...

NBM = National Bread Month, btw...

This is the waffle recipe I use. I add in all kinds of things as I cook them. I sprinkle them with nuts and seeds or add berries. Sometimes I add in stuff as I mix like a bit of pumpkin or mashed banana and cinnamon and nutmeg. The sky is the limit on these wonderful healthy breakfast treats. The above picture is a pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg waffle with little pumpkin seeds in it. We had these for dinner on Saturday night...

1 cup freshly ground red or white hard wheat flour (or just use wheat flour from the store)
1/4 level tsp salt
2 level tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup milk (I often substitute 1/3 powdered milk and 1 cup water to save a bit of money)
2 Tbsp. melted butter (or you can substitute oil for this)

Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a medium size bowl.
Beat in the eggs and milk until batter is smooth. (you can separate the eggs, add yolks as you mix and beat the whites separately and fold in at the end of mixing for lighter waffles with a little crisp to them) Stir in the melted butter or oil and mix well.
Pour the batter into a hot, well-oiled waffle iron. Cook until the waffle is brown.
