WHOLE-GRAIN STRAWBERRY WAFFLES
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- ¼ cup ground flaxseed
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp vegetable oil or oil of choice
- 1½ cups skim milk
- ½ cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp sugar

TO MAKE WHOLE-GRAIN STRAWBERRY WAFFLES:
- Preheat waffle iron. Preheat oven to 200°F.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa, flaxseed, cornstarch, and baking powder to combine.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together oil, milk, yogurt, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and whisk together until smooth and no lumps are present. Fold in chopped strawberries.
- Spray inside of waffle iron with cooking spray. Ladle batter on waffle iron, being careful not to pour too much. About ½ cup of batter per waffle square is a good starting place.
- Once waffle is done cooking, remove with tongs and put straight onto bare, preheated oven racks to keep warm until serving.
TO MAKE STRAWBERRY COMPOTE
- To make the compote, combine the strawberries, cane sugar, lemon or lime juice, and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low.
- Stirring frequently, continue cooking until the mixture has thickened and formed a syrup consistency, about 7-10 minutes. If desired, use a fork or a potato masher to break the strawberries into smaller pieces
