Do you ever see Martha Stewart recipes and think: “Man, no way can I pull something like that off”?
Well, think again, because today we have a whole-wheat waffles recipe from her new cookbook — Clean Slate: A Cookbook and Guide: Reset Your Health, Detox Your Body, and Feel Your Best — and although it is gorgeous and perfectly Pinterest-looking, we promise it is easy to make. Plus, it’s totally healthy!
Clean Slate is all about recipes that are easy and emphasize eating clean, whole, unprocessed foods as part of a primarily plant-based diet. Which we can totally get behind.
Plus, um, waffles. (With lots of protein and fiber, woot!)
- 11/2 cups whole-wheat flour (not stone ground)
- 2 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
- 2 tablespoons cane sugar
- 11/2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon coarse salt
- 11/2 cups milk
- ¼ cup canola oil, plus more for waffle iron
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
- Pure maple syrup, for serving
- Preheat a waffle iron (preferably Belgian-style).
- Whisk together flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
- Brush oil over waffle iron. Ladle ½ cup batter onto each square of the grid (or according to manufacturer’s instructions), and cook until golden brown.
- Top with yogurt, strawberries, and syrup and serve immediately.
What do you like to top your waffles with? Hard to go wrong with strawberries and yogurt, although I love me some peanut butter, too! —Jenn
