Healthy Waffle Recipe!

Healthy Waffle Recipe!

Waffles have always intrigued me, but given that the majority are loaded with sugar and calories I’ve never been a big fan.. until now! Waffles can actually make the perfect healthy breakfast, snack or dessert (when made in the right way) and I couldn’t wait to share this super healthy waffle recipe with you.

 

This recipe is low calorie, low GI, high in fibre and protein and so PERFECT for any time of day (I’ve also blogged a chocolate protein waffle recipe too!).

 

There are lots of waffle makers on sale but I got mine from Amazon. There are some cheaper as well as more expensive brands, however I really have been impressed with mine; it heats up quickly, makes 2 square waffles at a time, is easy to use and clean and it looks good too!

Healthy Waffle Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-large banana, mashed
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 50g oat flour*
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • Optional: 1-2 tsp vanilla, cinnamon, ginger or stevia**
  • Toppings: yoghurt, blueberries, honey (anything you want!)
  • Spray oil

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the banana, eggs, egg whites, oat flour and baking powder in a bowl (plus any extras - see below for my apple pie version!)
  2. Lightly spritz your waffle maker with spray oil (to prevent the waffles from sticking)
  3. Pour 1/3 of the mixture (if your waffle maker has room for 2 - or use 1/6 of the mixture for 1 waffle) into the waffle maker, close & cook for 5-6 minutes (the cooking time will reduce as the waffle maker gets hotter)
  4. Serve your waffles with yoghurt, fresh fruit & honey (my choice or see below for my apple pie version!) - or anything that you fancy!

Notes

*To make oat flour simply blend oats in your blender! To make this recipe gluten free use gluten free oats.

**To make an apple pie version simply add 1 tsp cinnamon. 1/2 tsp ginger, a dash of nutmeg & 2 tsp xylitol (a healthier alternative to sugar which is also kind to teeth) to the mixture & top with 1/2 apple microwaved for 1 minute, cinnamon, xylitol & some Wheyhey/Oppo ice-cream (optional but amazing!!!) or yoghurt!

    Could I use whole meal flour? Would it still work okay do you think?

    When my waffle maker arrived I sprinted to the kitchen with the box under my arm (think Jonny Wilkinson style), desperate to try waffle making. This is a great, healthy recipe again from Nic. I really enjoyed making these this morning, and enjoyed eating them even more!

    Needless to say, it’d been a day full of waffle tasting and we can’t wait to do a savoury day too!

    Thanks Nic, wonderful as always.
