Each week Dinner @ 6 will highlight a recipe using just 6 ingredients that was submitted by a reader. This week’s recipe is actually one I’ve been using for awhile.  I found it at moneysavingmom.com.  I’m considering starting Waffle Sundays at our house and making them every week, either for breakfast or dinner.  While this whole wheat homemade waffle recipe technically has more than 6 ingredients, it can be made with just six.  The recipe below is tripled and makes over 2 dozen large waffles.  We like to freeze the extras and pop them in the toaster for snacks or easy breakfasts during the week:

This one has mini chocolate chips!

HOMEMADE WHOLE WHEAT WAFFLES

5 1/4 Cups Flour
6 Teaspoons Sugar
3 Teaspoons Baking Poweder
6 Eggs
1.5 cups oil or melted butter (Up to 100% can be substituted with applesauce. we like to use 50/50 applesauce/oil)
5 1/4 Cups Milk (up to half can be substituted with water)
3 Tablespoons Vanilla (optional)
mini chocolate chips or blueberries (optional)

Mix together wet ingredients with a mixer.  Mix dry ingredients separately and add slowly to wet ingredients.  Don’t over mix.  Pour batter into your waffle iron and cool until done.  To freeze, just wait until cool then put in freezer bags or wrap in plastic.  I like to do mine in stacks of 3 (one for each kid).
