I stopped buying waffles since we started eating primarily real food because Eggo belongs to a chemistry lab and not my freezer.

There is even colour in those waffles but they are “a source of 9 essential vitamins and minerals”. Wow, really?! Thank you! Kellogg’s also suggests to pair them with a glass of GMO milk to provide “a complete and balanced breakfast”. Double thanks!

Then I found organic waffles but the cost prevented me from buying them. My boys LOVE waffles (what kids don’t?!) and will eat that $5 box for breakfast. I always kept thinking “Not a necessity, next time. I’d rather buy a bag of organic apples with saved money”.

One day, I got so tired of boys begging for waffles, I wiped years worth of dust off my over decade old waffle maker, cleaned out the pantry ingredients and made these applesauce waffles. Then I made them again and stocked my freezer. Whoa, this is cheap and easy! Since then, me and my waffle maker have regular dates. My latest creation is this amazing healthy waffle recipe, followed by protein waffles. Thick, crunchy on the outside and a bit chewy, they keep me sane on many mornings.

How to Make Healthy Waffles Recipe

  1. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add milk, maple syrup, olive oil, vanilla, baking powder and salt; whisk until well combined. Add whole wheat flour, mix well.  Healthy Waffle Recipe with whole wheat flour, olive oil and maple syrup. Double the batch and freeze for healthy breakfasts and snacks. | ifoodreal.com
  2. Preheat waffle maker and make waffles according to your waffle maker’s instructions. Amount of batter depends on the size of your waffle maker. I have similar to this non-stick one and used about 1/3 cup batter per waffle. If your waffle maker is cast iron you might have to spray it with cooking spray to prevent waffles from sticking but maybe not since batter has enough oil. Try one and see how it comes out. Healthy Waffle Recipe with whole wheat flour, olive oil and maple syrup. Double the batch and freeze for healthy breakfasts and snacks. | ifoodreal.com
  3. To freeze, let waffles cool for 10 – 15 minutes, then place in a resealable Ziploc bag, let as much air out as possible, seal and freeze. Call me crazy but I also wash, dry and reuse not heavily soiled bags. I wouldn’t save a bag from meat or fish but from waffles why not?!Healthy Waffle Recipe with whole wheat flour, olive oil and maple syrup.

  1. These were delicious & my mom thinks so, too! She wants me to make them again soon, & I don’t blame her. (gotta love that almond milk)

  2. Made these as pancakes as i dont have a waffle iron and oh my god, they were incredible!
    Was also out of honey so used mashed banana as a sweetner, I think this made them a slight bit drier so would probably need double or 1.5 times the amount.

  3. Hi Olena. I’m really excited to try this recipe. Is it possible to pre-make the waffle batter the night before and store it in the fridge, so that it’s ready to cook in the morning? TIA

    1. Totally. I just made these on Sunday. Triple batch and froze. Took me a few hours but I was cleaning the kitchen along the way. So much cheaper than store-bought organic.

  4. Hm I make mine with pancake mix and protein mix – egg whites folded in. They have been dry lately? any suggestions? thanks!

    1. Because they lack fats. Ideally I would use eggs instead of whites or at least half and half. Or coconut oil. Applesauce is a low calorie moisturizer too. Look up I have Gluten Free Applesauce Waffles.

  5. hello. i put all the ingredients into a calorie counter and got 535 calories for 2 waffles. i don’t really understand the HUGE difference.

    1. That doesn’t sound right. If you are using someone else’s ingredients nutritional info, they have many mistakes, you have to double check every ingredient nutr. info. That’s what I do.

  6. How do you reheat the frozen waffles? In the microwave? If so for how long and what power level? Thanks! Can’t wait to try these and stop buying the store bought freezer waffles!

    1. Just a cheap two waffle iron you can find under my Shop page and then Kitchen appliances. Sorry I am on the phone. No link. Just dont pour too much batter and they will come out round and small.
