Scratch Waffles

It's so much easier to make waffles from scratch than from a mix.  And knowing me, I usually am more likely to have the ingredients on hand than have waffle mix!

These happen to be chocolate chip, but you can really mix in anything to give your waffles a little extra flavor - peanut butter, wild blueberries, oatmeal, or pumpkin were a few other options I was considering!  

Basic Waffles:
1 3/4 cups Domata Flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (or egg substitute)
1 3/4 cups milk (you can use nut or soy milk)
1/3 cooking oil (or melted butter)

**If you want to make this more complicated, you can separate the eggs and beat the egg whites, then fold them into the batter to make it more fluffy.  I'm usually in a hurry (starving!) and just add the eggs in whole.  It doesn't make a huge difference. 

Heat up your waffle iron and use accordingly.  

Top with anything really!  Peanut butter is a favorite of mine, cream cheese, greek yogurt, or berry sauce.  Get creative.  

I make waffles because I suck at making pancakes.  It's really my only flaw :)
