1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour (or cake flour)
1/2 cup oats (or ground flax seed, or bran)
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder (without aluminum)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon (or nutmeg, or a teaspoon of allspice)
1 tablespoon raw sugar (or honey) (Leave the sweetener out if using the waffles with a savory recipe.)
7 tablespoons olive oil (or melted butter)
1 1/2 cups milk (or buttermilk)
2 teaspoons vanilla
100 % maple syrup
Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs well and stir in the oil, the milk, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in the liquid ingredients and stir altogether until blended, with a pebbled look, like a muffin batter. Don't over mix. Put about 1/3-1/2 cup of the batter into the waffle iron and cook until the waffles are done according to your waffle maker.
Pour warmed syrup over the waffle and sprinkle on top fresh fruit or berries, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, pureed dried fruit or raisins, shredded sharp cheese, butter, or chopped nuts. (I buy Lily's Chocolate Chips sweetened with stevia, at Whole Foods Market.) Some people eat their waffles with chicken, which I have yet to do !!
