post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
so we bought a great belgium waffle maker and I need a good, healthy, kid approved waffle recipe
I've tried two already and the girls dont approve, and I thought the super experienced moms here would help more then me randomly trying more concoctions off of recipes.com!!
thanks

I don't have kids yet but DH is super picky and doesn't like the taste of "healthy" baked good or pancakes and waffles. I use the Alton Brown (good eats on food network) Waffle recipe it uses 1/2 whole wheat flour and half reg flour.

When using whole wheat in baked goods the trick is to use White Whole Wheat flour ( it is a variety that is slightly lighter in color and a bit milder tasting, but still whole grain) I can even use some of it in cookies without DH noticing.

I think it is also called whole wheat pastry flour.

My kids eat any sort of waffle. I think they would eat anything with berries or maple syrup on it.

If you use equal parts white, whole wheat and wheat germ it's super healthy and "white."

Hi there, I have 3 beautiful children that love breakfast. I use 1/3 of the flour for wheat and a few tablespoons of wheatgerm. Here is the fun part with kids. I seperate the batter into 3 bowls and each kid pick what color they want their waffles or what flavor. I add a few drops of food coloring and if they want flavor, I add fruit. If they want strawberry, no need for food coloring, I just add smashed strawberries.

I make my own baking mix and use it to make waffles - it's based on the LLL Whole Foods for the Whole Family recipe. It's heartier than white flour recipes, but tastes great with the buttermilk.

8 cups whole-wheat flour (or you can use some other proportion)
2 cups buttermilk powder (try the bulk food store or just use regular milk powder)
5 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp salt
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredient together, then work in oil until crumbly. Store in fridge. (You can add dried fruit like blueberries too) Makes approx. 11 cups.

Large Batch Waffles or Pancakes

5 cups Baking Mix
3 cups water
3 eggs (use 4 for waffles)

Mix until no large lumps appear and cook on lightly greased griddle or waffle pan. Makes about 25 pancakes (3-4" each) - can be halved or doubled.

Enjoy!

How long does this stay good in the fridge? I've been looking for something like this, although the Kodiak waffles are pretty darn tasty....
