Number of Servings: 5


    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


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

    Thanks so much! I have since switched to regular raw sugar also. I find it makes a crisper waffle without artificial sweeteners. I originally submitted this recipe when Splenda was a miracle. Little did we know. Thanks again. I am glad you like the recipe. Happy eating

    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

    I left out the sweetner entirely,my regular waffle recipe has no sugar in it either,but I added cinnamon because of the applesauce. MMMM good! - 5/1/09

    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.
