Whole Wheat Waffles with Homemade Strawberry Sauce

This whole Wheat Waffles with Homemade Strawberry Sauce recipe is my breakfast of champions. Whole Wheat Waffles are made with white whole-wheat flour and a touch of nutmeg, paired with a delicious homemade strawberry sauce made with vanilla bean, pineapple juice, orange juice, and a splash of Grand Marnier Liquor.

Ah, waffles. They’re the perfect weekend breakfast treat and even better when made with whole wheat flour! But don’t stop at just having them topped with maple syrup—make a quick homemade strawberry sauce to drizzle over the top of your waffles instead! It is fresh and healthier than store-bought fruit toppings.

This homemade sauce recipe is a great way to use up any strawberries starting to get soft. The sauce can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until you’re ready, making it perfect for busy mornings.

This Whole Wheat Waffles recipe makes about eight regular-size individual home waffle makers, but if you need more, double or triple the ingredients and make as many as you need! The waffles are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, just like they should be!

Using whole wheat flour vs. regular flour

The difference between whole wheat flour and regular white flour is that the former has all the parts of the grain included, while white flour has had its fiber-rich bran and germ removed. Whole wheat flour contains more fiber, protein, and other nutrients than regular flour. Because it has more protein, whole-grain flours are best for baking bread with a high liquid ratio to dry ingredients (like cakes).

How to make whole wheat waffles

I’ve always used the King Arthur Website recipe, which has always worked for me. The original whole wheat waffle recipe does not contain nutmeg and uses regular sugar instead of organic. Those two ingredients make a huge difference in the taste. You will need the following ingredients

  • White Whole Wheat Flour: I used King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour.
  • Eggs: I prefer using brown eggs instead of white eggs.
  • Milk: regular if you prefer (almond or coconut milk are both great alternatives to cow’s milk).
  • Baking Powder (you can also use 2 teaspoons of baking soda for a fluffier waffle)
  • Salt, you can use kosher salt or sea salt
  • Organic Sugar, preferably
  • Unsalted Butter: if you use salted butter, you may want to decrease the salt amount.
  • Grated Nutmeg is optional but adds a wonderful taste to whole wheat waffles.
  • Strawberry Sauce: check out the recipe here and also the recipe below

Start by whisking the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl. Add the milk and eggs, then mix until smooth. Heat your waffle iron and grease it with butter or nonstick spray (or both). Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto each waffle plate. The amount of batter you use will depend on your particular waffle maker; some require more than others which will also affect the number of servings.

Notes and Tips to make the whole wheat waffles

  • For the Homemade Strawberry Sauce, you can use fresh or frozen strawberries. If you’re using frozen, thaw them first before pureeing them.
  • Regular milk is fine if you don’t have almond milk on hand! Just cook the waffles for a few extra minutes if you use cow’s milk.
  • If you don’t have any baking powder on hand, use 2 teaspoons of baking soda instead. This will make the waffles fluffier and lighter in texture.
  • If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container. You can reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven. If your waffles get soggy overnight, pop them into the freezer for about 30 minutes before reheating them to make them crispy again.

This recipe is a great way to start your day! It’s simple and delicious, with the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors. I hope you try it out and love it as much as we do! Also served with cooked organic sausages. What else can a tireless cook for on a beautiful Sunday morning?

Notes

  • Use ripe strawberries—you want them to be soft enough to squish easily with your fingers.
  • Chop the berries into small pieces that will fit in a food processor or blender.
  • Make sure you remove all stems and leaves from the strawberries before processing or blending! This will significantly impact how your finished sauce tastes (and looks).
  • Use fresh lemon juice and sugar, not store-bought lemon juice or sugar (store-bought versions are often too acidic or sweet).
  • If you want your sauce to be smooth, strain it through a fine-mesh strainer before serving!
