Whole Grain Waffles


waffleJust a quick how d’ya do and a waffle recipe. After I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram today, I was asked by a few people how I made them. As with many of my recipes, I start with a recipe that I’ve found on-line somewhere and then clean it up and change a few ingredients, depending on what I have in my pantry. I would imagine you could do the very same thing with this and still come up with something even deliciouser! To ‘health’ it up even more…use all applesauce. I’m sure it would work just fine. The kids LOVED them and would never have suspected that they were good for them! So here you go:

*Makes 6-8 waffles

1/3 C. egg whites
1 3/4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oatmeal (grind in a food processor or blender)
1/4 cup wheat germ
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat flour, ground oatmeal, wheat germ, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth.
Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown.

Made this way, 1 waffle = 184 calories

Made with all applesauce (no oil), 1 waffle = 127 calories
