Sunday Morning Waffles

Sunday mornings are precious to us.  A time to stay in our jammies a little longer, talk about everything from weather to Noah and the flood to why the leaves fall off the trees.  One amazing blessing this week was someone had given me a vintage Kitchen Aid Mixer so I was anxious to take it for a test drive. My husband and I decided to make a new waffle recipe and we were excited about how it turned out.  May it bless you as much as it blessed our tummies. 

These waffles are low fat because they use applesauce instead of oil and there is no egg in it.  You may need to spray your waffle iron thoroughly because low fat waffles tend to stick to the iron a bit more (stubborn but healthier).  This recipe makes enough for a family of 6.

Here it is

1 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
6 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond)
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 cup applesauce

Combine the flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Add the non-dairy milk, almond extract and applesauce.  Mix well.  

Pour into a lightly greased waffle iron and cook until golden brown.  Top with maple syrup, agave, powdered sugar, or fruit.



  1. can i just make these for dinner tonight? it's almost 90 degrees here and i don't have the energy to think of something wonderful to do with vegies --- i can picture your sweet and slow sunday mornings and it makes me happy ! hello and love to all !

  2. i did make these waffles for dinner with red pears on the side --- i sprinkled mine with diced red pears and flaxmeal and chia seeds and chopped walnuts --- and then drizzled it all with a mixture of maple syrup and lucuma powder --- a combo that tastes like caramel --- so very delicious and pretty nutritious !
