Clean Eating Waffles

I made these one night for myself for dinner, and they were really good. Light and fluffy on the inside, and slightly crispy on the outside. The recipe is for those who follow a “clean” diet, meaning no refined sugars, refined flours, or preservatives.

The only thing that was a little frustrating was that I tried making these without using butter or cooking spray on the waffle iron, and the first batch stuck making it very difficult to get them off of the waffle iron, then I realized, DUH, I’m not follownig a clean eating diet, and sprayed the waffle plates with cooking spray, making things way easier, so if you aren’t following a clean eating diet, I highly reccommend spraying with cooking spray or using a bit of butter :).

Clean Eating Breakfast (or Dinner) Waffles – recipe from The Gracious Pantry
Makes approximately 3 servings

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (i just used regular whole wheat flour and it turned out just fine, if you aren’t eating clean, feel free to use all purpose flour)
2 cups vanilla soy milk (or plain soy milk, or regular milk)
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat your waffle maker to medium heat (I put mine at about 325F).

Begin by putting your flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, add your milk, and stir, then add the egg whites and stir.

Add the vanilla and cinnamon, and whisk your mixture, ensuring there are no lumps.

Lightly spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and pour about 1/2 cup of batter (or however much your waffle iron needs to be covered, mine is pretty big so i needed a lot of batter) and let it cook until golden brown on both sides.

Top your waffles with any of your favourite toppings, and enjoy ! 🙂
