These waffles are filled with whole grain flour, nuts and citrus fruits. Easy to prepare and fun for all to make. Often times, I place the waffle iron in the middle of the table and everybody helps themselves. Serve them with maple syrup and fresh berries.

Waffles are a great alternative to pancakes and you can even send the individual triangles to school as snack.

Last week, we topped the waffles with sweet, ripe yellow peaches and pecans which turned out to be a delicious combination.
