Whole Grain Belgium Waffles
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 3/4 cup skim milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce (I used cinnamon apple sauce)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 C whole wheat flour (Can substitute: 1 c whole wheat flour, 1/2 c flax seed, 1/4 c wheat germ, 1/4 c all purpose flour)
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Optional: 1/4 c white chocolate chips ;o)
I have a Toastmaster Belgian Waffle Baker but its old, so I’m sure they have newer fancier ones now!
Step 1: Preheat waffle iron. In large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, oil, apple sauce, vanilla.
Step 2: Stir in remaining dry ingredients until batter is smooth. (You may have to add a little extra flour if its too runny, I didn’t measure that well!)
Step 3: Pour batter into waffle iron and cook until golden! (Spray waffle iron if it’s not non-stick)
Step 4: Serve with favorite fresh fruit and Agave Nectar (See below)
Makes about 14 waffles
I use Agave Nectar from Mudhava instead of syrup. Agave is a natural liquid sweetener made from the extract of the wild agave. It can be pricey, so I buy bulk and just refill the little container!
If you did your job correctly, your customers will look like this:
And just like the nice folks at “Kellogg’s Eggo” you can freeze these bad boys and reheat in a toaster!
