We have "brinner" (breakfast for dinner) fairly regularly, but we usually do pancakes. I decided it was worth getting out the waffle iron--and cleaning it afterward--to mix it up a bit.
I searched the internet for a wheat waffle mix recipe. I still wanted our dinner to be somewhat healthy.
I found a great recipe on AllRecipes.com. I read the recipe and all the reviews, and I made my own modified version.
Low Fat Wheat Waffles
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup applesauce (I used natural, no sugar added)
- 1 tablespoon oil (I used canola)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- Separate eggs so yolks are in your main mixing bowl and whites are in a separate bowl.
- Whisk egg yolks, milk, applesauce, oil, sugar, baking powder, salt, and vanilla together.
- Mix in both types of flour, mixing just until all ingredients are well incorporated.
- Beat egg whites in a separate bowl (with hand mixer or stand mixer) until fluffy. Fold egg whites into waffle batter.
- Cook waffles in pre-heated waffle iron. Enjoy!
Wouldn't it have been nice if I had taken some pictures to show you? Yeah, I didn't. I didn't think I was going to blog about this recipe, and I'm not in the habit of photographing our regular dinners. Then when we loved the waffles so much, I decided I'd share my modified recipe with you. Plus now I have documentation of my recipe for my own future use! :)
