Homemade Waffles Recipe (Low-Sugar)

homemade waffles

We had this waffle iron with the toasted sandwich maker for ages but never used it. The other day, when the kids requested baking – cookies or cupcakes – and I just wasn’t in the mood, I made a counter offer: let’s try our homemade waffles recipe. The idea was instantly sold, of course. 

Now waffles are normally a sweet thing, but I chose to make them with less sugar as we add lots of maple syrup or sometimes chocolate spread (palm oil free) – there is no negotiation about that! I also like to add banana, strawberries, raspberries or apple slices to it. One of these waffles will keep us going till dinner if we eat it as an afternoon snack.

It’s super simple of course, just put everything into a bowl and mix. I’ve tried to save the leftover batter on two occasions but I didn’t like the look of it after 4 days in the fridge, so I’d probably not recommend to keep in in the fridge for more that 2 days. The measurements in the recipe is easy enough to halve, if you need to make less.

All waffle makers are different, so you might need to bake them for more or less as my indicated 5 minutes – be mindful of that.
