This healthy waffle recipe is originally from the cookbook called “Delectable Collectibles”. It’s my Dad’s go to waffle recipe and its simple. My dad is not a cook, yet always made a big fancy breakfast for our family every Saturday and Sunday. It was pancakes, waffles, French toast or eggs, sliced fried potatoes, bacon, and biscuits or toast. What a hard act to follow!
Many people don’t make their pancakes or waffles from scratch, but simply buy a pancake mix. If my Dad can make this recipe from scratch, anyone can! The use of better ingredients is the best reason to be a scratch cook and collect healthy recipes!
I have upgraded the original recipe a bit. I use white whole wheat flour, or whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white flour, organic eggs, and olive oil. I also use soy, almond, or coconut milk because of dairy allergies in our family. I added blueberries to the mix, and fruit to top the waffles with a little whipped cream that I had left over from another meal, but usually I use yogurt with the fruit.
I usually double or triple this recipe which is one of my healthy diet habits that can save you time and money. If I am going to the trouble of digging my waffle iron out of the cupboard, I usually bake extra waffles and freeze them. They are excellent simply popped into the toaster and a nice treat on a busy weekday!
