Add Fiber One bran cereal to the batter and create delicious fiber-rich, whole-grain waffles.
- 1 cup Fiber One™ Original bran cereal
- 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 cup Gold Meda™l whole wheat or all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Maple syrup, if desired
- Fresh raspberries, if desired
- Heat waffle maker. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
- In large bowl, mix crushed cereal and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in egg, oil and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients except syrup and raspberries just until smooth. (Batter will be thick.)
- For each waffle, brush hot waffle maker with vegetable oil. Spread batter onto center of hot waffle maker. (Waffle makers vary in size; check manufacturer's directions for recommended amount of batter.) Close lid of waffle maker.
- Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown. Carefully remove waffle. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup and raspberries.
- Serve waffles immediately, or keep warm in a single layer on a cooling rack or paper towel-lined cookie sheet in a 200°F oven. If you stack them, they'll become soggy.
