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!)
Whole-Wheat Waffles with Sliced Strawberries and Yogurt
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
It’s hard to believe these crisp, light waffles are made with only whole-wheat flour (and toasted wheat germ); make sure to use a regular variety of whole-wheat flour—not stone ground, which would produce a heavier texture. You can use this recipe to make fluffy pancakes, too.
  • 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
  1. Preheat a waffle iron (preferably Belgian-style).
  2. Whisk together flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
  4. 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.
  5. Top with yogurt, strawberries, and syrup and serve immediately.
