Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles

Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles

These Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles are an excellent alternative to plain old-fashioned waffles! They are fantastic for a Saturday morning breakfast or even breakfast for dinner! The whole wheat flour gives them a hearty and filling twist to keep you feeling full!

Are you a pancake person or a waffle person? I am a waffle person, for sure. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my fair share of pancakes, but waffles are just better, in my opinion. They’re fluffy, crispy, and have little holes to hold all of the syrup. Yum, so good! We’re divided in my household because my husband prefers pancakes over waffles. But who am I kidding? He’ll happily eat both!

I got my awesome waffle maker from my sister for a wedding present, and I’ve been using that thing like crazy ever since. I probably make waffles for dinner more than I ever have for breakfast, because they’re just that good! I love experimenting with flavors too. I’ve done pumpkin, apple, gingerbread, chocolate. It’s so much fun playing with the flavors. But this recipe is a classic, and there is nothing wrong with that!

How to Get Crispy Waffles

So, I like my Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles nice and crispy on the outside. My best tip to getting crispy waffles is adding a little cornstarch to the batter. Not too much, because it’ll affect the taste. But just enough so that it’ll give you that delicious waffle texture. Also, make sure your waffle maker is turned up high enough! I always crank mine up to get them extra crispy.

  • 2 Large mixing bowls
  • Measuring Cups
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Waffle maker


  • 1 Cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1 Cup Unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp Turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups Unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut oil melted and cooled slightly


  • Turn a waffle maker on to a high temperature.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, cornstarch, turbinado sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Whisk the ingredients until distributed.
  • Add the egg, almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla to the other mixing bowl. Whisk all the ingredients until they are combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk the mixture until it becomes smooth. Use a spatula to get the bottom of the bowl and the sides. The batter will be thicker than plain waffles because of the whole wheat flour.
  • Spray a waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray.
    Use a 1/2 cup to pour the waffle batter in the preheated waffle maker, and cook as directed by waffle maker instructions, or until they are golden brown
  • Serve with natural maple syrup, honey, or whatever toppings you desire.

  2. These waffles look like they would make the perfect breakfast or brunch, especially with our own homemade Vermont maple syrup on top. 🙂 I bet I could do some simple subs to make these gluten free, too. Thank you for this delicious looking recipe!
