One of my all time favorite breakfast food is waffles! I am a huge waffle lover and once in a while I go to my favorite waffle spot, Waffle House. I think they make one of the best waffles period! I have so many amazing Waffle House stories. Here is one, before I was supposed to check-in to the hospital to have my son, I made my husband take me on a trip there to enjoy their yummy waffles before I went into labor, LOL. Glad I did, because I wasn't allowed to eat any meal for the next 12 hours!
So you know, I have been on a quest for the fluffiest waffle recipe for a while now. I had this nice recipe for years, but not until recently did I think it was amazing enough to blog about. My husband actually made the recipe better when he accidentally added an extra ingredient to my recipe, lol. I use a mix of wheat and white flour for a healthier waffle, you definitely don't have to do this and can even try other kinds of flour like almond. I hope you try it out one day and let me know what you think.
This recipe makes about 6-7 waffles on my waffle maker.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups of milk (I use soy)
1 stick and 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
2 egg whites beaten to a peak
Hand mixer or you can use your hands, it will just take a longer time
Place your dry ingredients (flours, sugar, baking powder and salt) in a medium to large size bowl. Place your butter in a bowl and melt for 30 seconds. Add the melted butter, and milk to the flour mix. Using your hand mixer, mix them all together. Break eggs, separating the whites and mix until it forms a nice white foamy peak. Using a spatula, add the egg whites into the mix and stir until well blended. That's it! Takes me about 20 minutes or less to make these yummy goodness:) Spray your waffle maker and add the mix in, following the waffle maker's instructions. You can keep the mix for up to 3 days, just make sure you cover it and place it in the refrigerator. It is so good, I even skip using syrup sometimes:)
The calorie count for each waffle is 370 calorie and just one is so filling! Add some fruits, veggies or eggs and sausage meat and you have a well balanced breakfast. Make it a super breakfast by adding chai seeds and blueberries before putting it in the mixer, its amazing trust me:)
