Honey Yogurt Waffles

I have a thing for honey. It hasn’t always been like that but this thing has developed recently. Bad, if you take into consideration that a 200g jar of honey costs about $5 here. Nevertheless, I started making different, sweet dishes using small amounts of honey to cut down on the amount of sugar that I’m using for the respective recipe.

Always with the thought of eating healthy food, I decided to go for these waffles. Yes, healthy is relative when it comes to waffles, I know, but would you please give me the satisfaction of thinking that adding oats and whole wheat flour makes it less of a sin? I loved them! More than the sweet waffles and my attempts to create chocolate waffles, which I still do not like, that I had made during the last couple of months. I liked their simpleness in taste and combined with maple syrup, it felt like a taste explosion in my mouth.


Honey Yogurt Waffles
idea adapted from Annie’s Eats

3 tablespoons of butter
120g of flour
60g of whole wheat flour
40g of oats
2 teaspoons of baking powder
pinch of baking soda
300ml of milk
180g yogurt
70ml honey
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

First step: Heat up your waffle iron to medium-high heat. Over low heat in a small pot, melt the butter and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the two kinds of flour, oats, baking powder and baking soda. Stir a bit to mix everything.

Second step: In another bowl, combine the milk, yogurt, honey, eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk until everything is smoothly combined. Add the flour mixture and whisk again to incorporate. Add the melted butter, whisking again.

Third step: Spoon the batter into the waffle iron, it takes usually about two ladles of batter per waffle. Remember that the recipe includes baking powder, the waffle will rise inside the iron, so do not add too much batter.

Fourth step: Serve directly or keep warm in the oven at about 70°C until you have finished making the complete batter.

This recipe should yield about eight waffles! :)
