Da Capo -- From Eatwell -- Yummy for Sunday -- Sunshine Waffles for a crowd

Sunshine waffles with fresh local strawberries and maple syrup, and (non local) bananas and cheesey sausage.  

Here's a treat from Eatwell -- a cookbook I compiled for our 30th anniversary Stairwell Carollers reunion.
You need a waffle iron for these.

I haunt second-hand stores and found an antique Sunbeam iron. 

Scrubbed well and coated with non-stick spray it works amazingly.

Preheat waffle iron.
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups large flake oatmeal
½  cup buckwheat flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. wheat germ
Add in with mixer on low:
3 ½   cups plain low-fat yogurt
4 eggs
½   cup light extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. honey  OR  2 tbsp. artificial sweetener
2 tsp. vanilla extract
½  cup orange juice
1 cup chopped nuts (we prefer pecans or slivered almonds)
2 tbsp.  baking powder
Don't overmix!
Batter should hold its shape but not be stiff.  If loose, add an additional  ½   cup large flake oatmeal.
If you are using an older waffle iron, coat surface with non-stick spray.  Drop approximately 2 ½  ladles of batter per large waffle and cook as your waffle iron’s   
directions or until golden brown.
Serve with maple syrup or sugar-free syrup, sliced bananas or strawberries and sausages or bacon.

I like to vary the ingredients -- adding fruit or different grains.  As long as your dry and wet ingredients are balanced, have fun!
IMPORTANT-- if you own a pet bird do not to use any non-stick appliances; the fumes from an overheated teflon surface will kill them instantly.


  1. Delicious looking waffles! Pinning this to my Pinterest board. Thank you for linking up.

    1. Thanks for pinning! I've been making these for years!
      Another nice variation is with berries or even corn niblets (my dad's idea -- from childhood) added to the batter.
