These are 100% whole grain, but they look like they're made from white flour!
1 c. white wheat pastry grains
2 c. buttermilk
2 T melted butter or olive oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
2- 3 T honey or sucanat
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
The night before you want to eat waffles, put 1 c. white wheat pastry grains into 2 c. buttermilk (if your buttermilk is super thick, use 1-1/2 c buttermilk & 1/2 cup water.) Blend in powerful blender (like blendtec) for about 2 minutes, or until smooth. Let sit for at least 7 hrs in the covered blender.
When you're ready to cook the waffles, preheat the waffle irons. Add the eggs, oil, vanilla and honey. Blend until mixed. You want a good vortex going in the middle, so add more water if necessary. Mix together the baking soda, baking powder & salt. Turn the blender on low speed and pour in the dry mix slowly. Once it is added, turn off the blender and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Spray the waffle irons with oil. Pour batter in and cook for 2.5 to 3 minutes.
