  • 2 C whole-wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • up to 1/4 C ground flax
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 Tbsp butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 C 0% Greek yogurt plain or vanilla
  • 1/2 to 1 C water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Heat waffle iron per manufacturer directions
  • In a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat eggs, butter & sugar together until well combined
  • Add yogurt, 1/2 C water & vanilla to the wet mixture & mix until combined
  • Stir in dry ingredients (add flour in ~1/2C increments) & mix until there are no lumps. Note: this will be a pretty thick batter, but if needed, add a little more water to create a thinner consistency (up to another 1/2 cup)
  • Use a 1/4 C measure to scoop batter into waffle iron, close lid & bake per manufacturer directions until golden brown (if you have a larger waffle iron, a 1/3 C measure may work better). Continue until all batter has been used
  • Keep finished waffles warm while you continue to cook the remaining batter by placing the waffles on a baking sheet in the oven at 200°F
  • Serve with your favorite toppings!


*For the ground flaxseed, I like to use the full 1/4 cup in my waffles. If you are unsure about this ingredient, I recommend starting with 2 Tbsp and increasing the amount from there! Incorporating flax is a great way to add fiber, protein, & omega-3s (as well as many other nutrients) to your waffles while imparting a very mild, nutty flavor.
