Blender Waffles

My mom made us a hot breakfast every morning growing up, so I work really hard to do the same for our kids. I am always looking for easy recipes that are quick and delicious.  This is an old family recipe and perfect for people that want to use their wheat but don't have a grinder.  I have made it before but my kids didn't like the chunks in their waffles, so I haven't made them in a long time. But the other night when I was thinking about recipes to share, this is the first one that came to mind because it is so easy. The recipe says to put whole wheat berries in the blender with some milk for 5 minutes but in my cheap blender they wouldn't grind very well. So I decided I would wait till we could afford a nicer one and filled it away. But I still have my cheap blender so I decided to soak them all night and it worked great. This recipe made 5 waffles, I have 8 people in my family and I had enough but next time I will probably double it.

Last night  I put 1 Cup of milk (I only used whole milk because I had it, 2% or 1% would work to) and 3/4 Cup Wheat berries right into the blender and put it in the refrigerator over night.

This morning I got up and started the blender first thing. Then I went to wake everyone up it only took about five minutes or so. I then added the rest of ingredients:

2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
2 eggs
1/4 Cup oil
2 Tbl sugar or honey

Start the blender again for only a minute or so this time until will mixed. Then cook in a waffle iron.
My kids love buttermilk syrup

1/2 Cup butter melted and browned
Then add
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Buttermilk
cook over med heat for 2-3 minutes
remove from heat add
1/2 Tbl Baking Soda

I know not super healthy but the are having whole wheat pancakes and I don't butter the waffles before I add the syrup. The LOVED them this morning!

Our oldest had basketball practice this morning so he missed out. But everyone else loved them this recipe will be added to our weekly rotation.  The waffles recipe had to be less then .10 cents per serving.  Healthy and cheap even better!  Win/Win Good luck!


  1. 5 waffles was enough to feed 8 people? The recipe sounds really good, but I don't see how it would come anywhere close to feeding my 8... especially the 14 and 12 year old boys.

  2. My 13 year old boy was gone so my 11 and two 7yr old and two 3 yr ate half of a waffle, me and my husband had a hole. I will double it next time but it made more then I thought.

  3. This hit the spot. Thanks for the recipe. The flavor was good. The batter seems runny, compared to other waffle batter, however it did rise and form just fine. Next time I will double the recipe. With a family of 5, young kids, 12 and under, there was just enough. I did not tell them how it was made, or else they would not have eaten it, I will let them discover that in a few years. Thanks for the good waffles.
