  • 473 grams buttermilk
  • 43 grams old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 90 grams whole-wheat flour
  • 90 grams all-purpose flour
  • 32 grams toasted wheat germ or cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 55 grams packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  • Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
  • Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat.
  • Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron).
  • Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.


Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indul- gence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.
To make ahead: Wrap any leftovers individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven.
