Apple WafflesSubmitted by: BEARSROCK
IntroductionI grew up eating these homemade waffles and wanted to tweak them to make them healthier. I tested them the other day and they were almost as good but with much fewer calories and virtually no fat per serving. Enjoy!

1 cup egg beaters (equiv of 4 eggs)
3 cups flour
2 1/4 cups skim milk
5 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
2 tbsp. Sugar
3 1/2 cups pared & shredded raw apple
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Salt
2/3 C applesauce (subs for the 2/3 cup veg oil)
salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Put egg beaters, skim milk, and vanilla into a small mixer bowl and beat on high speed one minute or so. Then add mixture to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed about 1 1/2 minutes until blended. Scrape bowl, while beating. Add applesauce and whisk only until blended. Then add shredded apples and whisk just until combined.
Make sure to preheat waffle iron until it beeps. Then spray with cooking spray to make sure the waffles do not stick. I sprayed before each waffle was cooked and had no problems with sticking. The waffles turned out better than I guessed they would, especially using applesauce instead of oil. It made a total of about 27 individual waffles (6-7 full-size waffle maker portions each made up of 4 waffles). I usually eat about 3 waffles for a meal. Syrup would be extra.
Number of Servings: 27

Pretty good. My batter was really thick, so I added a little extra milk. Also subbed some whole wheat flour (which may have resulted in them being a little tough) and used a little nutmeg for extra flavor. Rather than adding apples in to batter, just used diced as a topping! Will make again!! - 12/14/09
How much of the mixture makes each individual waffle (like 1/2 a cup, 1 cup, etc.)? Looks great, just need to know how much to pour per waffle. Thanks! - 10/21/09

Good question. My waffle iron cooks basically 4 waffles at once (one large waffle that is in 4 sections) and I used about 2 ladlefuls of batter per waffle. So 2 ladelfuls = about 4 waffles. Not sure what that is in a cup conversion. Hope that helps!
