I recently took on the Whole Foods Market Cooking “Your Best Recipe with Cornmeal” Contest. And I must say my Whole Wheat n’ Cornmeal Waffles turned out quite deliciously! Here are the dets:

These waffles are a super easy substitute for your usual boxed waffle mix! Plus they’ve been healthified, using whole wheat flour & cornmeal, so they’re bursting with whole grain goodness (perfect for February’s Heart Month!). And you can freeze any leftover waffles for a quick breakfast option for later.
