Introduction

A terrific way to start your day, much better than the frozen waffles you can find at the grocery store. A terrific way to start your day, much better than the frozen waffles you can find at the grocery store.
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1-3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 tsp of salt
    1 tbsp baking powder
    2 egg yolks
    2 egg whites
    1-3/4 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    3 tsp Splenda
    1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

In a large mixing bowl stir flour, baking powder, Splenda and salt.
In a small mixing bowl beat egg yolks, milk, vanilla and applesauce.
Add to the flour mixture all at once.
Stir mixture until blended.
In small mixer bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into original mixture and do not over mix.
Pour batter onto preheated waffle maker which has been sprayed with non-fat cooking spray.
They take about 3-5 minutes depending on your waffle maker.
To keep waffles warm while making the batch, turn oven on to 200 and place the cooked waffles on the wire rack.
These waffles freeze well and will reheat in a toaster. This is a much healther choice than frozen ones from the grocery.

    Great waffles! I used regular sugar. It's only 1 Tbsp, and I try to eliminate artificial ingredients when I cook. I think these will become a regular addition to our weekend menus. - 4/14/08

    Hi guys. The reason for the sogginess of the waffles is likely Splenda. Regular waffles are crispy because the sugar in them caramelizes. Splenda doesn't do that as well as regular sugar. If you must have your waffles crispy, try replacing the Splenda with sugar. - 6/11/09

    These tasted wonderful! I accidentally left out the vanilla and purposely left out the sugar. Yum-yum. They were enjoyed by all seven of my children. I took it one step further: I spread a little natural peanut butter and cut banana on top with a light drizzle of sugar-free syrup. Tasty! - 9/4/09

    Very similar to the recipe I have been using for years. JABLESON, I just add a little more liquid when I make pancakes--about 1/8 cup milk more for this recipe--than when I make waffles.
    For anyone who craves those wonderful Danish Aebleskivers (and has a pan) this recipe is the right consistancy. - 8/20/09

    These waffles were great!I selected this particular recipe because it mentions they freeze and reheat well in a toaster which is what I was looking to do. The recipe is absolutely right! I had one for breakfast this morning and it was fantastic! Possibly even better than fresh off the waffle maker. - 11/4/09

    I used brown sugar instead of the Splenda, added some tart cherries. I'll use all egg white next time to reduce fat and cholesterol. And try it with some ground flax seed. - 8/7/09

    My husband and I both enjoyed these. Very light, not dry. I did not beat the egg whites as instructed and they still turned out well.

    I made these this morning and added stevia instead of splenda. I think next time I won't sweeten them. They are delicious and I froze some. - 10/3/09

    It isn't the Splenda that makes these soggy, it's the applesauce!!! My family liked the store bought wheat waffles better, but I preferred these. - 10/1/09

    Nice taste. The cooking spray is absolutely essential on every waffle. Had some stick to the non-stick waffle iron! The tended to fall apart upon removing them from the iron.

    Made 8 waffles in my 'two spot' iron. - 8/11/07

    The whole family loved them. They have so much more flavor than the 'boxed' waffle mix. Mine weren't really crispy, but that might be more the fault of my waffle maker than the mix. They were still really good though. And frozen the left over reheated well in the toaster! - 5/18/09

    This was my first attempt at making anything with whole wheat flour. The waffles turned out great. I made them on my Geroge Foreman 5 in 1 grill and they didn't stick one time. Awesome recipe - 1/8/08
