Earlier this summer I pulled/torn/hurt/something my groin. Not fun. I don't recommend trying it because, although it sounds funny, your groin is this mass of interconnected core muscles that you use for everything. So, finally, after 8 weeks of a slow improvement and no running, I started seeing a chiropractor to maybe help. Sure, a chiropractor is not going to heal a torn muscle, I know that. But, as this is my first time seeing a chiropractor for anything, I can kind of say they are the boom shiznit. She pops, cracks, pulls, and stretches me.
What makes this story funny, is still that it's a groin injury. So, I am forced to lay on a table with a lack of humility while someone pokes and prods asking if this or that hurts. It has resulted in some magic pulse treatments boarding on delicate boundaries. And this last week, I got to do some funky yoga poses in hoochie mama shorts (because its easier to use the stem machine) on the floor of the doctors office (imagine you are a tiny froggie). A move I have to repeat at home for my boyfriends bemusement. All dignity abandoned at the front door.
- 1 ½ cups lukewarm milk
- 6 tbs butter
- 2 to 3 tbs maple syrup
- ¾ teas salt
- 1 teas vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 ½ teas active yeast
- In a small saucepan over low heat, stir the butter with the milk until just melted. Remove from heat and stir in the yeast do dissolve, milk should be warm to the touch, but not scalding. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir until combined. Don’t worry about it being smooth and perfect, a few lumps are totally ok.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for at least 1 hour. Mixture will grow and begin to bubble. *At this point you can refrigerate the batter overnight.
- When ready to cook, preheat your waffle iron. Spray with cooking spray and pour batter into iron. Be cautious not to over fill like I do every. single. time. Cook until waffle is golden brown and cooked through.
- Serve immediately.

I seriously need to try yeast waffles! These sound awesome!
Belinda @zomppa says
Hoochie mama shorts...nice one!! These waffles are picture perfect.
I have never made yeasted waffles, but i am loving the idea! These look perfect!
I was shocked at how easy they were. I read yeast and thought it would require work - like dough - but these are a breeze to make and really really good!
SOrry about your injury! I remember the first time I got seriously injured on the farm, and I thought I would recover immediately. Something about being young & invincible? Not so much. Take your time. Chiros are amazing! In the mean time, eat waffles 🙂

Yeah, I was pretty taken up with the hoochie mama short comment. I might have even smirked. The waffles look amazing, but I gotta tell you, it's your photography that puts them over the top. Is there anything you can't do????
Vicki @ WITK says
Groin injury? Not so fun! Hope you heal up soon! And Now I want waffles for lunch. I was going to be good and have salad...
I've never made or had yeast waffles, but they look way more fluffy!! Mmmmmm
Emily @ Life on Food says
Waffles yes. Chiropractors scare me. I hope you feel better.
Yeasted waffles are the best, and definitely less work than expected! I am cracking up at the visuals in my head of you doing your exercises 🙂 Hope you feel better soon.

I've been lucky enough (knock on wood) to have avoided serious injury up until this point. My husband, however, hurt his sciatic nerve over the summer. It was intense. So I feel for you on the injury front. I hope you recover soon! In the mean time, eat these waffles. Daily. As a form of medicine and healing.

My daughter is a runner. She always has something going on in the pain department. Perhaps just walking? She'd kill me if I said that! I made waffles for her over the weekend. Similar to yours, but I added sugar chunks. Yum!Hope they made you feel better.

Oh no! A torn groin muscle is never fun!! It sucks how you never realize how much you use a muscle until you can't use it anymore... poor thing. I hope these waffles helped you feel better!
