Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indulgence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ or cornmeal

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 each large eggs , lightly beaten

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.

  2. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.

  3. Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.

  4. Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
