Who says that waffles can not be healthy?! I am here to disagree! I have found a DELICIOUS healthy waffle recipe that even my kids love!! No sugar, no artificial ingredients – pure whole food!! I found this recipe in my Vitamix recipe book (which by the way if you don’t have a Vitamix you are so missing out). This recipe actually made quite a large batch of waffles so whatever we didn’t eat I put in the freezer to enjoy later.
To make them even healthier, I topped mine with honey flavored greek yogurt and fresh strawberries! YUM!!
Whole Wheat Banana Waffles:
1 cup (125 g) all purpose flour – unbleached
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups low fat milk (or almond milk)
2 ripe bananas
3 tablespoons butter (melted and cooled if using a blender…but in Vitamix you do not need to melt)
2 tablespoons honey
Whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
In this order, place the eggs, milk, banana, melted butter and honey into the Vitamix (Now here you try your blender – or even food processor). Blend on high for 20 second (may take longer with a regular blender – mix until smooth).
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold gently until dry ingredients incorporated.
Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Then cook as instructed by waffle maker.
