Low Fat Apple Pie Waffles

Low Fat Apple Pie Waffles

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp honey
1/2 cup wheat bran
1 cup skim milk
2 tsp dry yeast
2 egg whites or egg replacer
1 tsp apple pie spice
2 apples grated
3 tbl applesauce
3/4 cup water

In a 2 quart measuring bowl or other utensil that will pour easily, mix flour, bran, salt and spice; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine yeast, water, and honey, and let rest 5 minutes while peeling, coring, and grating apple.

Add grated apples, applesauce, milk, and egg whites to yeast mixture; mix well.

Stir into dry ingredients. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.

Pour about 1 cup of batter into a hot waffle iron* and cook for 7 – 8 minutes, or until the lid lifts easily.

* Pancakes:
Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto a medium-hot, nonstick griddle and flatten cakes so the enter will cook. Cook about 10 minutes on first side, about 6 – 8 minutes on the other side. Don’t turn until bubbles form on top. These cakes are thicker than regular pancakes and take longer to cook.

* NOTES :Lightly oil a nonstick waffle iron before heating to prevent sticking. To keep warm before serving, place cooked waffles in a warm oven on a bare oven rack.
