Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
