Whole Wheat Waffles

When I was a little girl, every weekend either Saturday or Sunday we had a family breakfast. It most often consisted of waffles, with piles of fresh fruit, warm maple syrup and powder sugar. In the summer, it was always a requirement to serve breakfast on the patio, where we would watch the paragliders sailing down from the tops of the mountains. In the winter, we always enjoyed a big breakfast before hitting the slopes. This recipe is a taste of my childhood. Now, every time we make waffles, I am filled with joy and reminiscent of memories of my childhood. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
