When I cook for my family, I'm always looking for opportunities to add fruit, veggies and nutrition to regular foods. My kids love waffles (but not pancakes for some odd reason) but I don't love all the sweet syrup and white flour. It's empty calories and carbs with no nutritional value. I've made mixed berry waffles, banana waffles, peanut butter & jelly waffles, etc. You name it, and I've probably tried it in my waffles.
Yesterday, I made up a double batch of apple waffles. Apples were on sale and I wanted to take advantage of it. They aren't as fluffy or crisp as I'd like so I need to keep working on the recipe. I'm open to suggestions! Here's what I did....
2 cups white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup honey
2 tablespoon baking powder
3 cups milk
4 large apples, cored and finely diced (I use the food processor to pulverize)
1/2 cup oil
Um. Now that I look at the recipe, I realize that I left out the baking powder.
That explains a lot.
