Healthy Savory Waffles

I’m usually pretty stoked about new recipes, but this recipe for Healthy Savory Waffles is one of my latest favorite creations! Everybody is always in for a good waffle, usually made during weekends, since it’s not that healthy to have everyday (especially for the ones who like to have a few slabs of bacon and drown the waffle in maple syrup!).

This version still requires flour, but instead of white flour, we used a 50/50 mix of rye and spelt flour, but you can use any type you like. Ok, the cheese is not the most low-cal ingredient, but I believe cheese is an essential part of making things savory (cheese addict, I admit it). Also, we added spinach, olives and spring onion! Lovely combo and I even brought these with me as an afternoon snack the next day! Who said waffles are only for the weekends?

List of Ingredients (makes about 10 pieces):
  • 1¾ cups of flour of choice
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 ¾ cups (Nut) Milk
  • ½ cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Eggs (where egg whites are separated and beaten stiffly)
  • 2 hands of Spinach
  • 1/4 cup of Black Olives (stones removed)
  • 2 Spring Onions
  • 1 cup grated Cheese (e.g. Cheddar)
  • 6 Tbsp of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Pesto (optional)
