Turning Deals Into Meals - Whole Wheat Waffles from The Baby Bistro

I probably shouldn't categorize this recipe under "deals." None of the ingredients involved were actually sale items, but for lack of a better place, here it is.

This was my second attempt at a Baby Bistro Cookbook recipe; this time Whole Wheat Waffles. I admit that I don't have much, or any, experience making my own whole wheat waffles. When the hubs and I normally fire up the waffle maker, it's for fatty, regular old waffles, drenched in syrup and frozen berries. Given that I don't have experience making the whole wheat version, I might be way off here, but the Baby Bistro recipe seems to be a bit lower in fat and sugar than a typical recipe.

The waffles were quick and easy to throw together, N seemed to enjoy them, and I was able to throw a few leftovers in the freezer to use another day.

The recipe follows.
