Whole wheat waffles

February 5, 2011

I am literally typing this post and licking my plate at the same time. CONFESSION: I just ate 4 waffles and have only one thing to say to those shaking their heads at me. Suck it!

Ok, moving on.

Found this recipe this morning on AllRecipes.com but made just one minor modification. I can also suggestion some alterations that might fit with the left over ingredients in your household.  🙂

Whole wheat waffles

2 cups flour (I did half all purpose and half whole wheat – works great)

4 tspn baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup milk

6 tbsp veg oil (* I often use half apple sauce and half veg oil – you can play around with these proportions to your liking)

2 eggs, separated

Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle iron
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in bowl; use a whisk so they mix together thoroughly.
  3. Stir in milk, oil, and egg yolks (um – the yellow stuff) – mix together until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix egg whites until stiff (I use my braun hand mixer which has an egg-beating adapter for the end; takes only a couple minutes)
  5. Gently fold egg whites into mixture; don’t over mix at this point. Want to keep these babies light and fluffy so they feel calorie-less.  😉
  6. Spoon onto waffle iron.

Now for the fun part. I added chocolate chips to the batter this morning, then gave Simone the waffle to eat WITHOUT syrup and she did, no problem. Like her mum, she inhaled the waffle in an instant.

Other great topping ideas:

  • frozen blueberries
  • mash bananas
  • apple sauce

If you have any modifications you can share please do! Oh, and for the record, I ate my 4 waffles WITH syrup, while giving the kid her share without. Gotta love the power of motherhood sometimes.  😉

      These are so good, I make a batch at least once a week then freeze in a ziploc and pop into toaster in the morning. We have a Beaumark, but it was a gift so I didn’t pick it out. It works just fine, no complaints! I’m sure there are many brands, but I think you can probably get something quite basic and not spend too much $$. Every few uses I spray with Pam just to re-season it (even though it’s non-stick).

      Let me know how it turns out and how the family enjoys the waffles! 🙂

      P.S. I modified recipe – apple sauce + veg oil is totally suitable.
