Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles/Pancakes

Sara B Principle #2 Balanced Meal: whole grain (waffles), protein (eggs/whites), healthy fat (avocado)

If you haven't noticed...J and I love breakfast foods...anytime of the day!
Here is another yummy recipe from my bridal shower book. This one actually comes from my Mom, Kay.

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles/Pancakes (works for both)
1 C buttermilk (if you don't have use skim milk mixed with a tsp of lemon juice OR use yogurt)
1 egg
1 T canola oil
1/2t Watkins vanilla
BEAT together
Stir in:
1 C whole wheat flour (or other varieties)
1 t Stevia or sugar
1/2 t sea salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
bake away in your waffle iron or pancake griddle!

I like a little natural Parker's peanut butter on mine or unsweetned applesauce

check out the ingredient list on this...2 items! Peanuts, salt. Sara B Principle #3 Eating Clean - Less is Best!

to come...roasted veggies and crock pot roast

Until next time...

look good, feel good, do good (under construction, sorry for the mess)


  1. Sara, is there some place on the internet to find a food list of good carbs- or is there an easy way to just know which ones are good and which are bad. thank you Beth

  2. Good question Beth! Carbs come from bread/starch products, diary, fruit, and veggies. So when we were are choosing the most nutrient dense or "good" carbs we look for whole grain whole, wheat bread/starch products (brown rice, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, ww tortillas. etc), low fat/nonfat dairy products, and really any fruit and vegetable.

    Limit and avoid: white starches!
    Hope that helps!

    Think WHOLE GRAIN!
