Yogurt Waffles

This is another Everyday Food recipe, that gives waffles a healthy twist. They are great for the kids, and it is one of my Grandma’s favourites too. I follow the groundwork for the original recipe, I have just adjusted using Splenda (for my grandmother), and have a few product suggestions. They are really delicious! Like my pancakes I also tend to make a full batch, place in freezer bags and then freeze the waffles for easy breakfast anytime . . . all you have to do is re-heat them in the toaster or toaster oven until warm and crisp!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar OR 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Blend Splenda (I choose to use Splenda)
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter OR margarine (I use Lactancia Healthy Attitude Omega 3 Margarine)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups plain, low-fat yogurt (my favourite is Astro Biobest Plain Probiotic Yogurt)
Directions:
  1. In a large bowl combine the flours, oats, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, and stir with a whisk.
  2. In another bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter/margarine, eggs, and yogurt, and stir well with a whisk until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Pour your wet ingredients into the dry, and combine well with a large spatula, without over-mixing the batter.
  4. Let the batter sit for 15 minutes.
  5. 5 minutes before the batter will be ready, heat your waffle iron.
  6. Lightly spray the waffle iron with some cooking spray to ensure the batter won’t stick. Be sure to spray in between each waffle.
  7. Use approximately 1/2 cup of batter for each waffle. Cook for about 5 minutes, however all waffle irons are different so make sure you watch your first waffle, and then note how long it takes.
  8. Serve waffles immediately with your favourite toppings (like fruit and maple syrup), or let them cool and freeze for breakfast anytime!
**New note – Just tried 1/4 cup rolled oats (instead of 1/2 cup) with 1/4 cup wheat germ and they taste great!
