Healthy Whole Grain Waffles

I love recipes with alliterations! I wonder, is it still considered alliteration if the letters are different, but the sounds are the same? (EXAMPLE: ‘Healthy’ and ‘Whole’) Hmmmm, I wonder… Probably not, but either way, this still seems like an awesome recipe that I cannot wait to try. It’s tasty and healthy. Plus it gives me an excuse to use my new Panini Press that also turns into a waffle maker. I am really excited!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 ¾ cups skim milk
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup flax-seed meal
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat pastry flour, flax-seed meal, wheat germ, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth.
  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown.
