Heavenly Healthy Waffles

  • 4 egg whites (or 1 cup egg substitute)
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 12 oz container of skim evaporated milk
  • 3 scoops protein powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tsp Pampered Chef Pure Bourbon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup finely ground oatmeal (about 1 1/2 cups quick oats blended in blender)
  • 1/4 cup finely ground Fiber One cereal (about 1/2 cup blended in blender or food processor)
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 6 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Splenda brown sugar blend
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. In Kitchen Aid mixer, whisk together the egg whites, milks, applesauce, pumpkin, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients until blended. Beat in flour mixture until combined.
  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron by scant 1/2 cups, and cook until crisp and golden brown.

2 waffles would = 3 points (by my calculation)

Note: Can substitute mashed bananas for pumpkin and/or applesauce. I've also used 1/4 c. organic extra virgin coconut oil in place of the applesauce.

These are excellent! So easy to make, and just sweet enough that V and I don't need any syrup or anything!
