Waffles can be some of the easiest ways cater to the sweet tooth in your family, but on the contrary, be made healthy by the addition of fruit and protein for breakfast.
If you don’t have a waffle maker, I highly recommend purchasing one. There are so many cool recipes out there today that use waffles makers for so much beyond your normal waffle batter. I’ve recently seen brownies, quesadillas, paninnis, and even cinnamon rolls.
I want you to see my recipe below as a plain canvas. For all my work out and health nuts, I highly recommend the addition of protein powder, chai seeds, flax seeds, or even quinoa. For my sweet lovers, add something like chocolate chips, butterscotch, or peanut butter into the batter.
Prep Time- 10 minutes
Cook Time per Waffle-7 minutes
1 cup All purpose flour
1/4 cup Whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Salt – a pinch
2 teaspoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
1/4 cup almond milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Toppings of your liking: I suggest fruit, peanut butter, chocolate, nuts, or even Greek yogurt!
Preheat the waffle iron.
Mix the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl using a whisk.
Make a well in the middle. add water, oil and vanilla extract.
Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated and as smooth as possible.
Pour the batter in the pre-heated waffle iron. If your waffle maker needs, grease it with cooking oil spray before pouring the batter.
Please keep in mind that waffles made without eggs takes more time to cook then one with eggs. My personal waffle maker had taken me about 7 minutes for normal to small sized waffle. This may differ depending on your waffle maker. (Test this with your first waffle, the first waffle is never perfect!)
Top waffles with anything you’re craving! I suggest fruit, peanut butter, chocolate, nuts, or even Greek yogurt!
