Whole-Grain Waffles with Sliced Strawberries and Yogurt

Serving Size: 4

This recipe uses only a handful of baking ingredients and is sure to become your back-pocket breakfast (and not just on weekends). The batter whisks up so light, it's hard to believe the waffles (or pancakes) are fully whole wheat.


  • 1.5 cup whole-wheat flour (not stone-ground)
  • 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 0.25 cup canola oil
  • 1.5 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 0.5 tsp coarse salt
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 Tbsp toasted wheat germ
  • Maple syrup, for drizzling


  1. Preheat waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg, and vanilla.
  2. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  3. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. For deep, Belgian-style waffles, fill each cavity with 1/2 cup batter and cook until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes (or according to manufacturer's instructions).
  4. Serve with strawberries, a dollop of yogurt, and a drizzle of syrup.
