Looking for whole-wheat yeasted waffle recipe (or thoughts)

Scott_R | May 17, 2017 04:58 PM

I don't have a sweet tooth, especially for meals. I never get waffles or pancakes or French toast out because, invariably, I find them too sweet. So I've settled on a waffle recipe that works for me:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup other flour (I change this around as the mood strikes me or what I have at hand. I've used oat flour, corn flour, buckwheat, cricket flour, and more)
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or others)
1 nice handful of diced, dried apple pieces (the Bob's Red Mill product)
a few times, a few tablespoons candied ginger, the most I go with sweetness.
Basically mix the dry, then the wet, put into wafflemaker.
So unlike most waffle recipes this has no fat (other than the eggs) and no sweeteners. This isn't just going for healthy, it's just that, tastewise, I prefer savory, and this is how I run for waffles.

So, to switch things up, I'm looking to do a yeast-raised version. So far, the closest thing I've seen online is this:

this more or less hits the mark, except for the 1/4 cup molasses. I know it's not a lot, but I *really* don't have a sweet tooth. Normally I'd just leave it out, but I was wondering if it serves some purpose for feeding the yeast, though the recipe already has the 1 tablespoon sugar/honey.

I'd probably make the overnight refrigerated version, so a quick rise wouldn't be needed.

Any thoughts?
