Whole Wheat Sourdough Waffles are always a "hit" in our house!

Below are products, ingredients and books that can be used with this recipe and ordered from Amazon.com:

I find that the sourdough breaks down the fiber and germ so that these waffles are light and fluffy. I can even serve these to kids that are used to the white flour type of waffle and they gobble them up!


2 cups sourdough starter (be sure that any flour that was added to your starter has been in there for at least 12 hours. This way it has and enough time to break down all the hard to digest parts of the whole grain and the nutrients are more available for assimilation.)

4 Tbls. melted butter or ghee

2 Tbls. sweetener (rapadura, honey, maple syrup, or a pinch of stevia powder)

2 eggs (separated)

2 Tbls. arrowroot powder

½ tsp. celtic sea salt

½ tsp. baking soda

Preheat cast iron waffle maker on stove or plug in your electric one.. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff. Mix together the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Gently fold in the eggs whites. If the batter seems a bit thick then add a little water. Pour batter into hot iron and cook for about 3-4 min. until golden brown.

Serve with butter, honey, maple syrup, yogurt, pre-soaked and dried nuts, fresh fruit or what ever you like. My all-time favorite is cinnamon fried apples, crispy walnuts, raw butter, and maple syrup.

Photo above: I try to double this recipe and then cook extra to freeze. When we are in a rush in the morning, I pull these out of the freezer and into the toaster.

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging, raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.

Sourdough waffles...what a great idea! I have a problem with fructans, so wheat is generally out for me. BUT, the fermentation process in sourdough breaks …
