Tasty Tuesday: Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Waffles

I definitely don’t use my waffle iron enough.  And I have no excuse for that, as making waffles is so easy!  I got the itch to make waffles yesterday and decided I’d like to try adding peanut butter to the batter.   I searched around online and found a few recipes.  The one I took and adapted can be found here.  These waffles are tasty and healthy too.

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Waffles

What you need:

  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. honey
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • heaping 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • splash vanilla extract

How to make it:

  1. Put all the ingredients into the bowl of your electric mixer.
  2. Using the paddle attachment, beat until blended.
  3. Cook on your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.

I also made an apple topping to go with these.  If you’d like to go beyond the traditional waffle toppings this is a great one.
