Easy to Make From Scratch Waffles
These from scratch waffles are perfect for your home waffle maker. The ingredients are simple and wholesome too so you don’t need to feel guilty when you indulge 😉
The key “special” ingredients include applesauce, coconut oil, and whole wheat pastry flour. Applesauce is a great way to keep the waffles light and moist on the inside, coconut oil instead of butter helps them to crisp up, and the whole wheat pastry flour keeps them wholesome without turning them into a dense brick. All of these elements together are what, to me, makes the absolute perfect waffle.
This recipe is really easy to pull together. Most waffle recipes require you to whip egg whites. Cut out all of that (and a few extra dishes) by using a blender to mix your ingredients. DISCLAIMER: Just be sure to add them in the order stated in the recipe! Don’t worry, I’ll remind you there too 🙂
After that, it’s simply pour and cook according to your waffle maker’s instructions. For me this means four minutes (slightly longer for the first batch). The waffles come out super crisp on the outside and light and airy on the inside.
Prep and Enjoy Later!
These waffles are JUST as good from frozen. This recipe makes enough for a family of four with maybe a couple of waffles left over depending on what else you’re serving them with. Once the waffles have cooled, wrap them in plastic wrap in single layers. Wrap a set in foil if you like, and then place in a freezer safe bag. I highly recommend going straight to the freezer and skipping the fridge altogether. When you want to make your frozen waffles, preheat your oven to 350. Place the FROZEN waffles (please don’t thaw first!!) in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for about 5-10 minutes, you’ll likely smell them when they’re ready to eat again. 🙂
I’m confident these will become a new staple in your home like they have mine.
