Clean Eating Thursday #6- Whole Wheat Blender Waffles

I told you.... we LOVE waffles. You will be seeing lots of waffles here at The Bakery Box. This recipe is hearty. The wheat berries leave a nice subtle nutty crunch. Wheat berries? Yes, wheat berries. If you are like me, you have never heard of such a thing. Don't worry...truck on down to your nearest health food stores and ask someone. At my Sunflower Market they are in the bulk food bin area. A bag of wheat berries is about $3 and it will last you months with this recipe. Give it a try. These are so filling, half a waffle will fill you up and keep you full for awhile.
Whole Wheat Blender Waffles
Put the following ingredients into your cart...
1 c. plus 1 Tb whole wheat berries

1 c. milk

2 eggs

4 Tb oil

2 Tb sugar (or honey)

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Blend wheat berries and milk on high for 4-5 minutes, until batter is smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend on low for a minute, or until incorporated. Cook on hot waffle iron. (Stir batter before pouring into waffle iron, because the heavier wheat particles will settle at the bottom.) Makes about 10 waffles.(To make pancakes instead of waffles, use 1 c. wheat berries and 2 Tb oil.)
