Ingredients
Directions

Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.

Whisk the flour with the oats, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, then add the milk, butter, and oil.

Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, to make a batter. Take care not to over work the batter, it's fine if there are a few lumps.

Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter per waffle (it depends on the size of your waffle iron) and cook until the outside of the waffle is crisp and inside is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. (The time varies depending on the size and spread of a waffle iron). Serve warm with maple syrup. Repeat with remaining batter.

Very good recipe. I didn't have wheat germ, so I just left it out. I was in the mood for some banana waffles so I added 2 medium bananas and cut down the milk by 1/4 cup. Also added 1 tsp more baking powder and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I'd make them again and even try some different types of ingredients. Great base recipe, but with the bananas they didn't get very crispy, if that is what you wanted. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used whole wheat flour and deleted the wheat germ. I added raisins to the batter which gave them a different and most tasty twist. Even my fussy eater ate them. Definitely try the raisins... item not reviewed by moderator and published
These turned pretty good. They were much sweeter than I expected. I used whole wheat flour and added a tsp of vanilla. The only problem was they didn't get crispy on the edges, so once the syrup hit them, they got soggy pretty quick. They still tasted good and were healthier than most waffle recipes. Even my husband ate them, and he runs when words like whole wheat are mentioned : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can you really call it whole wheat using white flour?. I Substituted the white flour with actual whole wheat flour and added a touch more brown sugar. Also upped the flavor ante with 1 tsp vanilla. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best waffle I've made with the following changes. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of AP flour and replaced the butter and oil with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce. I also used Splenda brown sugar. My batter came out thin so I just added more flour (about 1/3-1/2 cup to thicken up the batter. I used a little more than 1/2 cup of batter per belgian waffle and was able to make 5 waffles. Like some others, my waffles did not come out crispy but it was still delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super Yummy! The only thing I changed was to separate the eggs and whip the egg whites before adding them at the very end. Next time I will use whole wheat flour. I can't wait to make these waffles again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So Good! Didn't even "need" syrup, but even better with a drizzle of maple syrup. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Very good recipe! I added some allspice, nutmeg, vanilla, and honey to the batter for my 2 year old son. He loves french toast and i suspected he would appreciate the added ingredients! Also added some blueberries to the batter! Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delish! We substituted butter and oil for safflower oil, whole wheat flour for AP and eggbeaters for eggs and the waffles turned out great. Topped off with some fresh summer strawberries, it was a fantastic breakfast! item not reviewed by moderator and published
