Happy Healthy Holidays!

No need for bland waffles! These are low in calories and fat but not flavor with honey, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and allspice making them a festive fall favorite. The use of egg substitute and low fat milk are the trick to reducing the fat and calories.

Gingerbread Waffles

Recipe Ingredients

1/4 cup light butter at room temperature
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 cup low fat milk
2 cups sifted unbleached flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 egg whites

Recipe Directions

Preheat a waffle iron.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, honey and molasses until well-blended. Beat in the egg substitute and milk.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture just enough to moisten all ingredients.

In a clean, dry medium bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold the whites into the batter.

Bake in the waffle iron until lightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Serving Suggestion: Top gingerbread waffles with your favorite fresh fruit.
