If you love waffles, this is the recipe for you. Healthy, hearty, and delicious, this is our favorite recipe for waffles made with natural yeast starter!
I am now DAYS away from having this baby boy, instead of weeks! It’s a little frightening and I don’t think I’m quite ready, mentally, but babies never wait for that sort of thing. Whether I am ready or not, he will come on his own time. For now, my to-do list has dwindled to almost nothing and I find myself wandering around almost wishing I had more to do.
Just kidding, my body is ready to get this baby out and I take any chance I can to sit down with my heating pad. I have so many things to post and I feel like limited time. I will definitely take a break from posting when this baby comes, so I will try and get a few more recipes up before then. I finally found a waffle recipe that I love, so let’s start there!
These waffles are really good. I have a bag full of them in my freezer right now, ready to throw in the toaster on a busy morning. Our tried and true favorite toppings are still pure maple syrup (with peanut butter for me) and my homemade chokecherry syrup.
I love that this recipe makes a bunch, because leftovers are never turned down around here. If you eat them plain you can get that slight sourdough taste, but it’s completely masked when you put anything on these. I love a great breakfast dish!

- 2 c whole wheat pastry flour
