Why You Should Use Whole Wheat Flour in Your Waffle Mix
We’ve used whole wheat flour as the base for our homemade fruity multigrain waffles to give you an extra boost of fiber and nutrients. Whole wheat flour is packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy diet. It also has a high fiber content, which can help to regulate your digestive system. Adding whole wheat flour to your diet is a great way to get all the benefits of a healthy grain without sacrificing taste or texture. These waffles are light and fluffy with a perfect crispy exterior. They’re also loaded with fresh fruit and make a satisfying breakfast or snack.
An Unusual Add in – Flaxseed
When it comes to waffles, there are a lot of different ways you can make them. You can make them fruity, savory, or even add some extra nutrients. One way to do this is by adding flaxseed to the mix like we did with our Fruity Multigrain Waffles recipe.
Flaxseed is a great source of protein and fiber, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. Adding it to your waffles will not only make them more nutritious, but also help keep you full longer. To add flaxseed to the Fruity Multigrain Waffles recipe, simply add four tablespoons of ground flaxseed to the wet ingredients before mixing everything together. This will help not only to thicken the batter, but it will also give the waffles a nutty flavor.
Why Use Syrup When You Can Add Fruit Instead?
A lot of people love waffles, but what they may not realize is that by adding fruit to their waffles, they can reduce the need for syrup. This is because the fruit will add sweetness and flavor to the waffles, making them more enjoyable to eat. Additionally, the fruit will also add even more nutritional value to the meal. We used pineapple and bananas, but this recipe would actually be yummy with several different fruit blends.
How Long Will the Fruity Multigrain Waffles Last After Making Them
Waffles are a delicious breakfast, but you might not have time to make them daily! Since they can be enjoyed any time of day, you might be wondering how long they can last after making them.
Here’s a quick guide to how long your waffles will last, depending on how you store them:
– If you keep them in the fridge, they’ll last for about 2-3 days.
– If you freeze them, they’ll stay fresh for up to 2 months.
– And if you want to keep them at room temperature, they’ll only last for a few hours before starting to go stale.
So there you have it! These Fruity Multigrain Waffles are perfect for a quick snack or a leisurely meal, and they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge or freezer for later.
