Healthified Waffles??

Somehow I knew Saturday night that I would want some yummy waffles Sunday morning! I was browsing before bed (yes, while I had my burnt finger stuck in a cup of ice water) and found this recipe. It seemed very easy and suggested making the night ahead and putting in the fridge- perfect! The boyfriend gave me a "SERIOUSLY?!" look when I turned the mixer on again (he hates the noise AND was stunned that I was already back in the kitchen). But it only took 5 minutes to whip the ingredients together. Sunday morning I heated up the waffle iron and we were good to go! I added a mashed up banana to mine-delicious! I didn't even mention to the bf that these were "healthified" with whole wheat flour and applesauce. hehe :) Next time I'll try using all whole wheat flour and maybe some splenda.

The bf is never too happy with the sogginess of the waffles this waffle iron produces though. It was a cheap waffle iron from Target, and it really is BAD. We use it so infrequently though, that its not really worth buying another one right now. Anyone have a better waffle maker they would recommend that won't break the bank? I much prefer waffles to pancakes!

Waffle recipe
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour (I used 1 whole wheat, 1 all purpose)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil ( I used 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 1-2 TSP sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • sprinkle of nutmeg
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/2-1 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 bananas, mashed (optional)
In a large bowl, beat eggs until fluffy. Add other ingredients until smooth. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.Cook until golden brown. YUM!

Oops, I made a mess!

Sonny wanted to know if he could have one...

They do look pretty darn delicious, don't they?

Orangina and Orange Julius (our clown fish) have been feeling left out lately...
