Whole-Grain Waffle Mix
- 4 cup coarse, whole-grain yellow cornmeal
- 3 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup baking powder
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Mix it all together in a really big bowl. Spoon or pour into a large container, seal closed, and store in a cool, dark pantry for up to 3 months.
To make the waffles: Place 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons mix in a large bowl; whisk in 1 large egg, 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk (or any sort), 2 tablespoons oil (preferably a nut oil), and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes. Then prepare the waffles in a heated waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
NB: To substitute melted butter for the oil, use 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled.
