Classic Belgian Waffles - Low Fat & Refined Sugar Free!


It's starting to get really cold here in Minnesota. I'm not happy about it - but what are you gonna do? There was already a possible snow alert a couple of nights ago, but luckily I didn't wake up to a Winter wonderland. I'll be ok with Mother Nature holding off on the snow as long as possible!

The nice thing I like about the weather cooling down is the chance to make more hearty comfort foods. I absolutely love waffles. I really don't know why I don't eat them more. I guess in my mind I think it's such a hassle, but it's really not! I just throw a few ingredients together and my waffle maker does the rest! My grandma got me a waffle maker for Christmas last year and I've only gotten around to using it two or three times. Hopefully this winter I can bring it out more often. Maybe even try out some Autumn and Winter favorites? Pumpkin Spice waffles anyone?

I also have a really yummy pancake recipe coming up soon. One that my grandma used to make all the time when my Mom was younger! I can't wait to share it with all of you! This recipe made two giant waffles with my waffle maker. This recipe can easily be doubled to feed a large crowd! If you're wanting an extra decadent waffle and aren't trying to stay away from fats and sugars - add 2 tbsp of oil and use 1 tbsp of sugar instead of maple syrup! That's what I did for my Dad and he loved them!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (I used Bob's Red Mill White Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk or water (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium sized bowl mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. In a separate, larger bowl mix together the maple syrup, apple sauce, non-dairy milk, and vanilla. Once the wet ingredients are well incorporated - add in the dry ingredients and mix well until combined. Cook according to your waffle maker's directions!
