Healthy Waffle Recipe
I swear, my Cuisinart Wafflemaker was the best thing that happened to me in 2010. I bought it on a whim at Bed Bath & Beyond for about $25 when I was supposed to be buying something lame like forks (isn’t BB&B great at getting you to make unplanned purchases?). I have gotten way too much enjoyment out of this thing and now I would like to pass my joy onto you. The simple recipe below makes 9 delicious low-calorie whole wheat waffles (137 calories each, to be exact). I like to prepare these fluffy 7-inch wide delights on a Sunday morning and freeze the leftovers to have for breakfast all week. Just make sure to put a piece of parchment paper between each waffle before placing them in a freezer bag so that they don’t stick together.
2 egg whites
½ cup white flour
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 ¾ cups fat free milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1. Preheat waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.
2. Combine ingredients and mix until smooth.
3. Pour ½ cup info waffle iron and even out with spatula before closing it.
