Until today, I always had to answer this question with a friendly “No, thank you”. Healthy waffles or waffles as part of a strict diet? I just couldn’t see it. But the saying „Waffles are pancakes, just with abs“ gave me massive cravings for waffles.
The smell of freshly baked waffles in the air… sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? Luckily, waffles can be prepared in a healthy way too!
Until I came across a fun invention: Waffle shapes made from silicon. Just make sure, that the silicon is free from substances that can be dangerous to your health. I recommend the use of these silicon shapes, which I use every week.
The best part: Cleaning up afterward will only take a minute!
And, feeling the waffle cravings kicking in yet? Waffles don’t have to be calorie bombs, because there is always a healthy option!
- 250 g low-fat curd
- 50 g grounded oats or yield oats flakes
- 50 ml plant-based milk
- A pinch of baking powder
- Sweetener of your choice
- Should you be using the shapes in your oven, preheat it to 180°C. Alternatively you can also use a regular waffle iron. In a bowl, mix curd, egg and milk, then add the oats and the baking powder.
- Blend well, until all ingredients are combined into a smooth dough.
- Then - if desired, add a sweetener of your choice.
- Give the dough into four shapes of the same size or your waffle iron. A little tip: Wash the shapes with cold water and don’t dry them before use. You won’t need to use any oil to keep the dough from sticking to the shapes. The silicon shapes should stay in the oven for 15 minutes.
