In these whole wheat waffles the fluffiness comes from using hot milk which is later mixed with baking powder. Baking powder reacts in the liquid medium to release carbon dioxide which aerates the batter, which in turn makes the waffles fluffy and soft.

Making waffles is easy and won’t take much time. these whole wheat waffles are not sweet. So they are best served with some jam like strawberry jam or fig jam or mango jam or mixed fruit jam or with whipped cream or syrups like honey or maple syrup or dates syrup or jaggery syrup.

If using honey, then pour honey on the pancakes when they become warm. If you or your family loves chocolate then you can use chocolate syrup.

To make sweet waffles you can always add more sugar. You can even skip adding sugar for sugar free waffles. For a healthier variation add jaggery or coconut sugar or palm jaggery. The recipe yields 6 waffles and can be easily halved or doubled or tripled.
