Simply A (RD) Fact: Instead of drowning your waffles in syrup, top your waffles with fresh fruit for a touch of sweetness for less calories!
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1¾ cup + 1 tablespoon skim milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacture’s instructions.
  2. Separate the eggs, placing the egg whites in a small bowl and the egg yolks into a large bowl. Whip the egg whites until they form soft peaks, about 1-2 minutes. Set them aside.
  3. In the large bowl with the egg whites, add in the milk and oil. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add in the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Gently stir to combine – don’t over mix (a few small lumps are okay!).
  4. Add the beaten egg whites to the batter and gently fold to combine, leaving some patches of egg white.
  5. Grease your preheated waffle iron with some cooking spray. Portion out the batter into your waffle iron according to the manufacture’s directions – make sure you cook until golden brown and crisp!
  6. Serve with your favorite toppings (the possibilities are endless!).
  7. Enjoy!
