Homemade waffles!!!

Have you ever looked at what is in store-bought waffles?! Well, let’s just say that making your own is much better for you, saves money, and tastes amazing!  I make large batch and freeze whatever we don’t eat. When it’s time to eat them, I pop them in the toaster to thaw and brown a little more and…. voila! 👌🏼


I found a single-serve waffle maker at Marshalls (of course! It’s my favorite store!) and have used it regularly. It was only $7.99!


This waffle recipe has become a new favorite of ours:

For the batter

2 eggs

2 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour

1 3/4 cups milk

1/2 cup applesauce (in place of the oil in traditional recipes). I used cinnamon applesauce today… yumm!

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon organic cane sugar 

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

*this makes about 15-16 single-serve waffles, so I will sometimes cut it in half if I don’t plan on freezing the extras 
Toppings 

I put frozen strawberries and blueberries together, warm them, and add a sprinkle of sugar to make a good glaze. 

You can also sprinkle powdered sugar on, or even make “icing” by mixing powdered sugar with a teaspoon of milk… not the healthiest, but still better than store-bought! 

Here are some more picture of the “process”:

Stay Healthy,
