For the last few days I have been craving waffles! So, last night I indulged my craving by making whole wheat & oatmeal waffles accompanied by a simple, yet delicious egg bake.

Whole Grain Waffles
Preheat your waffle iron.
In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients:
2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 cups oat flour (grind up rolled oats in a blender)
4 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp sucanat
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the wet ingredients:
2 cups skim milk
4 egg whites, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp maple extract
Whisk together until just moistened. Do not over mix, batter should be lumpy.
If desired, add 1 cup of berries.
Pour 1/2 c waffle batter onto preheated waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's guidelines.
