Made with greek yogurt and flax, these Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles are delicious and perfect for freezing. Meal prep a batch for quick and easy breakfasts.

These Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles have been a staple in our family for many years now. I started making them in an effort to make school mornings a little easier. I wanted something quick and nutritious to make the kids for breakfast, and now they just make it themselves. Because these waffles are made with whole wheat flour, greek yogurt and ground flax seeds, they provide a lot of fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. Make sure you use ground flax or flax meal; the body won’t digest whole flax seeds.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles are a healthy start to the day, and keep the kids full until lunch. And, the kids like the waffles, a lot, which means they’ll eat them without complaint. In fact, the kids want you to know that they each give the waffles 2 thumbs up.

This Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffle Recipe makes a lot of waffles, for 2 reasons. 1) We’re meal prepping, so why not prep a lot? 2) The waffles smell so good, and the kids always want some fresh ones right out of the waffle maker. I make my waffles on Saturday morning, when there’s no reason to rush. The tantalizing aroma draws the kids to the kitchen, and we visit while I’m cooking. The girls enjoy a few freshly made waffles, and the rest go in the freezer for another day.

Easy Prep: Whisk it all in One Bowl

To make the Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles, start by whisking the eggs in a large bowl. Combine the eggs with the greek yogurt, and then add in the milk. Once all the wet ingredients are mixed well, start adding the dry ingredients. I usually mix in half of the flour first and then the rest of the ingredients. It just makes whisking easier.

While you’re mixing your ingredients, pre-heat your waffle maker. For my waffle maker, 1/3 cup of batter is the perfect amount for 1 waffle, 4 waffles per set. I get 26 waffles out of one batch of batter in my maker. Be sure to follow the directions for your waffle maker.

Cook each set of waffles until they are golden and crispy on the outside (approximately 4 minutes per set) following your waffle makers instructions. Set each on a plate to cool, and continue making Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles until the batter is gone.

Let the cooked waffles cool completely to room temperature before freezing them. I store mine in resealable freezer bags. There’s no need to separate them into individual servings. I find they break pretty easy at the seams when they’re frozen. To reheat your Fluffy Whole Wheat Waffles, toast them in a toaster oven until they are warmed through and a little crispy on the outside. Enjoy with your favorite toppings.

Total Time: 40 min
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 30 min

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 1/2 Cups Milk
  • 4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flax (Flax Meal)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat your waffle maker. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the greek yogurt and whisk to combine. Then, add the milk and whisk again.
  2. To the same bowl, add half the flour and mix until it’s fully incorporated. Finally, add the remaining flour, baking powder, salt and ground flax. Whisk one last time, until the waffle batter is thoroughly mixed.
  3. Once your waffle maker if pre-heated, spray with non-stick spray, fill with batter and cook according to the waffle maker’s directions. For my waffle maker, I use 1/3 cup of batter for each waffle (4 waffles per set), and each set takes about 4 minutes to cook. Repeat with the remaining batter until all the waffles are cooked.
  4. Enjoy the waffles right out of the waffle maker. It makes a big batch so there’s some to eat right away and some to freeze.
  5. To Freeze: let the waffles cool to room temperature. Then, place the cooled waffles in resealable freezer bags, and put them in the freezer. Simply pull a couple waffles out of the freezer and toast them in a toaster oven for a quick breakfast.
