Whole wheat waffles

Patrick loves waffles! A few years ago I gave him a waffle maker so he could enjoy waffles whenever he wanted. We make them for weekend brunch quite a bit. Ever since he received the waffle maker we've made this buttermilk waffle recipe. Sometime recently he revealed that they weren't his absolute favorite so I set off to find a new recipe to try. I came across a whole wheat waffle recipe that sounded good. We enjoyed this new waffle and will definitely try it again. There was a slight learning curve this first time we made them since the batter consistency was quite a bit different than the other recipe.

Whole Wheat Waffles from 100 Days of Real Food blog
   Serves 4-5 (we cut the recipe in half)

2 large eggs
1 ¾ cups milk
¼ cup oil or melted butter
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
Warmed 100% pure maple syrup for serving
Fresh fruit for serving

   Preheat your waffle iron.
   In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, honey, cinnamon, and baking soda until well combined.
   Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together just until the large lumps disappear.
When the waffle iron is hot, dab it with a little butter and then ladle some batter onto the center of the iron. Follow the instructions that came with your waffle maker to know how long it should be cooked.
   Keep waffles warm until you finish cooking all of them. Top with pure maple syrup and fruit. Enjoy!
