Description

Inspired by comfortablydomestic’s wonderful TK recipe, and my old standby Alton Brown buttermilk waffle recipe, I came up with a batch of multigrain waffles that we just loved! If you have a waffle iron that doesn’t remind you that it’s on, like mine, don’t walk away and forget about your waffles–you’ll be sorry!

Serves 3 generously, but if you have many other dishes (eggs, potatoes, meat, fruit, etc.), you could serve 4.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 2 whole Ripe Bananas (can Be Previously Frozen, Thawed, We're Talking A Good 2/3 To 3/4 Cup Of Mashed Bananas)
  • 1-½ cup Buttermilk
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour (I Use Unbleached, But Use Whatever You've Got)
  • ½ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ cups Uncooked Hot Cereal (I Used Bob's Red Mill 8 Grain Whole Grain Hot Cereal, But Any Ground–Not Rolled–Hot Cereal Will Work)
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ cups Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, Or Finely Chopped Semi-sweet Chocolate

Preparation

Preheat waffle iron (see note below).

Wet team: In a large bowl, beat eggs until well mixed. Add bananas and beat until bananas are mashed and thoroughly combined with the eggs. Add buttermilk, oil, brown sugar, and vanilla and mix thoroughly.

Dry team: In a strainer placed over the bowl (see note below), combine the flours, cereal, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Sift onto the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Dump the remaining bits of whole grains in the bowl if they don’t fall through the strainer. We want them too. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Note: If you’ve got a decent waffle iron, then feel free to preheat starting now. Mine needs all the help it can get, so I start preheating it before I make the batter.

Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup batter per section of the waffle iron (or whatever your manufacturer recommends). Bake for 5-8 minutes or until steaming stops, lid lifts easily, and waffles are golden brown.

Note: I do enough dishes, so in place of a separate bowl for the dry ingredients, I usually combine my dry ingredients in a strainer placed over the large bowl, then sift them down into the wet ingredients. Try it that way, or use a separate bowl, or just dump them all in together.
