Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour (see flour notes)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle iron to medium heat.

Notes

Freezer-Friendly: take any leftovers and place in a freezer zip-lock baggie and freeze. To reheat, place in toaster and toast until warm. Will last 2-3 months in the freezer. 
Notes on Flour: you can use all-purpose, white whole wheat or whole wheat flour in any combination that you prefer, I will usually use a combo of 1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup whole wheat or 2 cups white wheat flour. You can also make these gluten-free using a gluten free flour mix (this is our favorite). If using whole wheat flour, you may need to add in extra milk to thin it out as whole wheat flour is extra absorbent.
