This delicious Peanut Butter Waffles recipe is made with oatmeal flour, organic peanut butter, coconut milk, baking powder, and two egg whites. Healthy and tasty! Enjoy!
The first time I ate waffles was at my mother-in-law’s house. She made the batter from scratch and I absolutely loved it. It was so good that I ate about four at once. Hum… I topped them with pure Canadian maple syrup and blueberries. It was delightful for me, someone who had only seen them in movies and TV shows. Waffles are not part of a Brazilian breakfast meal, but I have to tell you, Brazilians are missing something really good.
I asked my mother-in-law for her recipe and she even gave us our first waffle maker as a wedding gift. But since we decided to eat healthier, I was trying to find substitutions for some of her recipe ingredients. I was certain my husband and I wouldn’t give up eating waffles on the weekends.
One thing I love about cooking healthy is finding good quality substitutes for all those unhealthy ingredients in popular recipes. So, I decided to replace the all-propose flour for oatmeal flour to get more fiber. Also, I substituted two tablespoons of vegetable oil for organic peanut butter. If you don’t have organic peanut butter, just use what you have. But I really recommended you use a brand that uses only peanuts as an ingredient. In my opinion, peanut butter is only healthy for you if you are eating 100% peanuts. I also didn’t use yolk in this recipe to cut some calories, but if you want to, go ahead and try it. Instead of traditional milk, I use coconut milk.
My mother-in-law’s recipe doesn’t ask for sugar, which is a good thing since we top our waffles with pure Canadian maple syrup. In the end, the substitutions worked marvelously and my husband and I keep eating waffles on the weekends guilt free 😉
The key to a light and fluffy waffle is beating your egg whites until they form soft white peaks. Why? Because you will gently fold them into your mixture. If you’re a waffle lover like me, you will love this recipe!! I am not kidding. Just try it and tell me how yours end up. Don’t forget to top with your favorite fruit and pure maple syrup. It’s totally fine to enjoy something sweet sometimes, especially when it is naturally sweet.
I hope I inspired you to create something healthy and tasty in your own kitchen today.
