Delicious Whole Grain Waffles

This recipe is one created from scratch in our teaching kitchen.  It is so versatile, you can top with fruit, berries, or syrup.  If you want to add some protein to your meal, think about topping it with peanut butter, hazelnut butter or even an egg.  It is one of those foods that has some substance to it, so it will stick with you and not leave you hungry an hour later.

Also, the bonus to this recipe is there is no messy batter bowl to clean up!  Wahoo! Everything is mixed in a zippered plastic bag.  Extension Staff rated it an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up!
