Waffles are a classic breakfast staple that can be made healthier with a few simple tweaks. Here are five ideas for making healthy waffles at home:

  • Use wholemeal flour: Instead of using refined white flour, choose wholemeal varieties for a healthier option. Wholemeal flour adds more fibre to your waffles and makes them more filling.
  • Add protein: Boost the protein content of your waffles by adding Greek yoghurt, cottage cheese, or protein powder to the batter. This will help keep you full and satisfied for longer.
  • Use natural sweeteners: Avoid using refined sugar and instead use natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or mashed bananas to sweeten your waffles.
  • Add fruits and veggies: Try adding grated zucchini, carrots, or mashed sweet potato to your waffle batter for added nutrition. You can also top your waffles with fresh fruit like berries or sliced bananas for a delicious and healthy breakfast.
  • Swap out the toppings: Instead of traditional toppings like butter and syrup, try healthier options like nut butter, yoghurt, or fresh fruit. You can also make a fruit compote or use a small amount of honey or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness.
