Simple (Healthy) Waffle Recipe

Simple (Healthy) Waffle Recipe

Waffles. I love waffles. My kids love waffles. Who doesn't love waffles? Especially homemade waffles. Mmmm...

I'm trying to make healthier food choices not just for myself, but for the kids as well. These waffles are great because they're made with whole wheat flour, minimal sugar, no oil, and they're also dairy free. Bonus, they're so simple to make that even your kids can help!


This recipe makes 4 large waffles. You can double or triple this recipe as needed.

You'll need:


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 large bowl
  • waffle iron
  • cooking spray (or something to grease the waffle iron)


Mix the dry ingredients together in the bowl.


Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and mix it all together.


Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray and heat.


Once it's heated, add about 1 ladle of batter and cook.


Repeat for the rest of the batter.



If you want, you could also make a super simple berry sauce to go on top while the waffles are cooking.

You'll need:


  • frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries all work - use only one or a mixture)
  • 1/2 tbsp. sugar (you can omit if you don't want something too sweet or you're trying to be healthier)
  • 1 tbsp. water


Add the frozen berries, sugar and water into a small saucepan and cook on medium heat for approximately 10-15 min. until hot, berries are soft and the sauce is bubbly.
