Stormy Sunday Whole Wheat Waffles

Hurricane Sandy is just about here, which means it’s time to…make waffles, of course!  I try to do a hot breakfast on the weekends (pancakes, eggs, etc.) but was feeling waffles yesterday.

I went to my old standby, Tasty Kitchen, and found this recipe from Lauren’s Latest.  If you’re not familiar with Lauren’s blog, you’re totally missing out.  She’s kind of a cooking rock star.

These waffles were really perfect for a lazy Sunday.  One bowl, quick cooking, hearty and healthy.  Doesn’t get much better.  And ever since I visited McCormick a few weeks ago, I’ve been trying to use more spices in my life.  This recipe includes both cinnamon and nutmeg which gives it such a great fall flavor.

Only change I’d make?  Next time I’d double the recipe.  It made 3 large waffles (using this waffle iron) which was great for the three of us, but I’d have liked to have a few leftovers to freeze for next time I’m feeling lazy.
