Serves: 4Hands-on: 40 minutesTotal: 1 hourDifficulty: Easy
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. apple pie spice
- ¾ cups warm water
- 1 tsp. honey
- 2 tsp. active dry yeast
- 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and grated
- 3 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- 2 egg whites
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flours, salt, and apple pie spice. Place aside.
- In a separate medium mixing bowl, stir together the water and honey. Sprinkle the yeast over the surface of the water/honey mixture. Let this stand for about 5 minutes, in order to dissolve. When the yeast has dissolved, stir in the apples, applesauce, milk, and egg whites until well blended.
- Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients. Cover and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 200°F. Heat a waffle iron, and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the waffle batter into the waffle iron (about 3 to 4 heaping tablespoons). Close the iron. Cook waffle for about 6 to 7 minutes, or until the steam stops coming out and the waffle can be easily removed.
- Continue with remaining batter. Keep finished waffles warm in the oven until finished. Sprinkle with sugar before serving.
