Slow Rise, Vegan, Low Fat, Waffle Recipe (improved with lower sodium!)

OK, so I think I cracked the code for a low fat, vegan, low salt waffle.  I scoured the web and couldn't fine one that fit all those crazy requirements so I had to come up with one on my own.  I think you'll be happy with the results!


These waffles are a little crispy out of the waffle maker but if you are a super crispy waffle fan just give 'em a quick toast in the toaster oven once they're done.  We like them as-is.

Ingredients:

3 cups whole wheat flour (you can use pastry flour)
3 1/4 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 TB sugar (this is needed for yeast to feed, you can try turbinado but I didn't)
1 TB agave nectar
2 1/4 cup non dairy milk (we use almond milk)
1 cup warm water (you can use more almond milk but this will raise sodium content)
1/4 cup applesauce
1 1/2 Energ-g Egg prepared (i.e. 2 1/3 tsp mixed with 3 TB water)

Method:

In a large bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients, then add the wet and mix just until combined.  Allow it to rise in your fridge overnight.  Remove from the fridge and allow to sit on the counter for 20 to 30 minutes.  Proceed as you would any waffle recipe.  Most modern waffle makers have a nice nonstick surface so you don't need pam but you may need it.  Add blueberries or vegan chocolate chips or make them plain as my hubby prefers them.  As they come out of the waffle maker, we put ours in a 200 degree pre-heated oven until all the waffles are all done so we can sit and enjoy them together!  Top with a bunch of yummy fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.  Yummy and guilt free!

If you really want to relish the traditionally made waffles then it would be better for you to choose the iron Maker comprising of cast iron material than the aluminium one. The cast iron maker offers you with great aromatic wafflers by locking its flavor.
