I have been searching everywhere and playing around with the idea of healthy yet savoury waffles, it’s difficult as you pretty much always need to use milk, butter & flour and finding substitutes became a little tricky, especially while trying to get the right consistency for batter.
Finally I have came up with this recipe which each waffle contains only 175 calories per waffle and 6g of fat, I think it’s reasonable if you are looking for a light snack, however if you wish to add toppings such as bacon, eggs or even more cheese then this would be prefect to whip up on a cheat day for brunch. My daughter loves them also, I split them up into individual hearts and popped sliced ham on the top. You can get very creative with any extras you add to the batter itself, at the end of this batch I added some spinach and tomato.
I had 2 for lunch with some sliced avocado on top and it sure was delicious! Below is the recipe, let me know if you try these yummy waffles and what extras or topping you added. Without further ado…
Yield: 8-10 Waffles depending on waffle iron type/size
1 Waffle = Calories: 175 Fat: 6g Carbs: 19g Protein: 9g
1 medium egg
3 egg whites
2 cups of whole wheat flour (You may use any type of flour)
4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup of light grated cheese
1 + 3/4 cups of water (You may use milk)
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (You may use vegetable oil)
With an electric hand mixer beat together the egg and egg whites until light and fluffy about 2 minutes, then add all other ingredients in no particular order beat together for a further minute, the batter will be a wet but not so thick/sticky texture.
Heat your waffle iron on the highest setting, spray with a light cooking spray, when the waffle iron is ready add a soup ladle full of batter and close the lid, cook on the iron until slightly golden brown about 5 minutes each.
Serve immediately with your desired toppings and…
