Waffles are a favorite breakfast food at our house. When the boys were younger we always kept a box of Eggos in the freezer for easy fixings in the morning. Now that we are all more health-conscious, I love to make this more nutritious version. They freeze really well, take only a couple minutes to heat up in the toaster (especially if you like a slightly crispy waffle) and taste really good with a little peanut butter spread on top. Or for a special treat at night I sometimes toast a half a waffle and spread it with about a tablespoon of Nutella.
So without further ado, here is my recipe for Whole Wheat Waffles, adapted from Sparkpeople.
Recipe: Whole Wheat Waffles
Summary: Easy to make, nutritious waffles that freeze well.
- 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup 1% milk
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Gradually mix in the eggs, milk, vanilla, applesauce and honey.
- Stir until well blended.
- Pour batter onto preheated waffle maker which has been sprayed with non-fat cooking spray. For my waffle maker, I use about a half cup of batter per waffle.
- Keep in mind that if you use a Belgian waffle maker, you will get bigger waffles and the nutrition information below will be different. (i.e. more calories)

This is a great recipe and I’ll probably make waffles tomorrow for breakfast. That sounds delicious!
Have a good day!
I found you through the Alexa Blog Hop over at Racing and Saving Momma’s blog. I’m following you. 🙂
Those waffles look beautiful and delicious. I will need to make those for my kids.
I am just stopping by to leave some alexa love from the blog hop. Please stop by my blog to return the love
Those look wonderful! Now can you blog about an easy way to clean the blessed waffle iron? I never have figured that one out!
Nancy – I wish I knew!! The inside of mine is non-stick so pretty easy cleaning, but the outside and especially the hinged part – yucky!! If anyone has an idea – feel free to comment!!
These look great! Maybe I can get Jesse to eat one, too! He’s not much of a breakfast food eater.
