Healthy Waffle Recipe

What could be better than a healthy waffle recipe?  I love waffles!  And nothing is better than knowing your favorite foods are healthy for you!  On the whole, another waffle recipe couldn’t be that bad for you, with the occasional refined oil, sugar, eggs, white flour. . . the usual.  To be honest, I don’t usually keep most of those ingredients in the house, so when we decided to have healthy chicken and waffles for dinner with delicious maple baked chicken, I knew I had to get creative.  Thankfully, it was not hard to find a whole wheat waffle recipe that was pretty easy to alter to my liking.

Ingredients:

2 organic, cage-free eggs (because there are only two, you could probably substitute with flax egg substitutes if you are out of eggs or are going for a vegan waffle).

1 and 3/4 cups organic whole milk (dairy-free milk would be ok here as well, though it might make your batter a little thinner.  The good news is that a thin batter for a waffle isn’t the worst thing in the world, being that you have a great waffle iron (especially the inverting kind)).

1/4 cup organic natural unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp coconut oil (plus 1 tsp set aside for greasing the waffle iron before use). You could also use olive oil, organic butter, etc. if you are nut-free, excluding coconut oil.

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp plus 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 and 1/2 cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour

Directions:

  1.  Spread 1 tsp coconut oil on waffle iron plates as evenly as possible.  Preheat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat four, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and ground cinnamon.  Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, blend eggs, milk, applesauce, oil, and 1/2 tsp baking powder with a hand miser on low until fully combined and frothy.
  4. Fold wet mixture into dry ingredients just until completely combined and free of lumps.
  5. When your waffle iron is ready, pour 1/4 cup into each side and cook until lightly browned.  My waffle iron suggested to cook between 4 and 5 minutes, but I found my best waffles to only take between 2 and 3 minutes.
  6. Keep waffles warm until all are finished and serve with organic butter, all natural 100 % maple syrup (we prefer Grade B Organic Maple Syrup :P), applesauce (my favorite), or all natural ice cream for a great dessert!

Mmmmm!!! This healthy waffle recipe turned out GREAT!  So delicious, and after a dessert of chocolate ice cream waffle sandwich (the first time my husband had tried this incredible combination) we had no leftovers (always a plus!).
