IMG_4855

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

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!

  1. Just wanted to let you know that we started using your curriculum. I have provided a link back to your blog. :)http://asinglegypsy.blogspot.com/

  2. Your little one looks so happy to have cleaned her plate!I wish I had a good waffle iron! One of these days… right?

  3. We cooked these up this morning. They were a hit! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh I cannot wait to try this! We have yet to purchase agave and I am glad you included your tip on purchasing in bulk! We love using whole wheat and our favorite flour for sure is Kamut! I cannot wait to try these :)

  5. I made these for dinner tonight. 2 thumbs up from my family!

  6. I made these waffles for my family several times so far and they are always a hit! I tried them once with white chocolate chips as a treat and they LOVED them. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Tracey at tot Play

  7. I love your blog! We have been doing your letter of the week curriculum for several months now. Thanks so much!! I wanted to show you an article about agave nectar that another blogger had posted. Basically the article states that agave nectar is worse than high fructose corn syrup. Dr. Mercola is a very well known doctor so i feel it is probably trusted information. You may have already read this but wanted to share. http://www.drmercola.com/2010/03/7-reasons-why-you-should-avoid-agave-syrup/ So confusing. I have some agave nectar in my pantry too. Thanks again for all you do!

  8. I found this recipe on your site a while back, but wanted to say that it’s the only waffle recipe we use now! I never was a fan of waffles cause they are usually so sweet and cakey (I don’t like that in the morning – I know, I’m odd). THese are the perfect balance of sweet-cakiness for the waffle lovers in my family and lighter, healthier tasting for me. THey stick with syrup or fruit yogurt for dipping, I go with heated (previously frozen) mixed berries on mine. Yum! Thanks!!

  9. Just made this tonight for dinner. My kids are eating them up w/o complaint. Can’t wait for my husband to try them……also, I had mine with vanilla ice cream, choc syrup and rainbow sprinkles……yummy. Thanks
