Whole Wheat and Chocolate Waffles

These are super delicious. The whole wheat gives them such a rich flavor and if you don't like wheat then add the coco and all you will taste is chocolate. These are very healthy and by the taste you would never guess. Who doesn't love chocolate in their breakfast? I top with non-dairy and meringue toppings, my famous mango syrup and fresh berries. Serve with an egg white omelet. I just love that you can enjoy a large waffle and egg breakfast for only 1/3 of the calories.

Whole Wheat and Chocolate Waffles

Divide the batter into 2 bowls. Add 1/4 cup baking cocoa to one of the batters for chocolate waffles. That way you can try both.

  • 1-3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1-3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl stir flour, baking powder, honey and salt. In a small mixing bowl beat 1/2 of egg whites, milk, vanilla and applesauce. Add to the flour mixture all at once. Stir mixture until blended. In a small bowl beat remaining egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into original mixture and do not over mix.

Pour batter onto preheated waffle maker which has been sprayed with non-fat cooking spray. They take about 3-5 minutes depending on your waffle maker. To keep waffles warm while making the batch, turn oven on to 200 and place the cooked waffles on the wire rack. These waffles freeze well and will reheat in a toaster.
