These are the perfect solution. Since these are made with Whole Wheat, they're healthy, and more filling than their commercial counterpart. I can make them when I have the time, cool them, and stack them in a freezer container between waxed paper sheets. Then, whenever I want a toaster waffle, I can pull one of these out and pop it in the toaster oven!
These are Whole Wheat, but since my stuffedveggies Pancake & Waffle mix uses Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, they're not at all heavy : )
Here's how it's done:
Stir Together Dry Ingredients:
1 Cup stuffedveggies Pancake & Waffle Mix
2 Tablespoons Tapioca Starch (Cornstarch or Arrowroot Powder can substitute)
1 Cup Water (approximate, may take a tad more water or more mix to achieve Pancake & Waffle batter texture)
(These are a Non-Sweet Waffle - although there is a bit of sugar in the mix, it's not enough to make these as sweet as the commercial variety. My little girl likes them this way. If you prefer a sweeter taste, don't hesitate to add a bit of your favorite sweetener.)
Prepare according to directions on your Waffle Iron.
Just to be clear: Although I call these "Toaster Waffles," they're delicious fresh, too! Although I do find a more delightful crispy-edged texture after toasting : )
Here are a few tips that work with my Waffle Iron:
I brush the Iron with a little oil from a pastry brush before each waffle is made.
I use a 1/4 cup batter per waffle.
I spread the batter around in the form with the back of a spoon before I close the Iron.
I wait until the light has gone off AND the steaming has almost completely stopped before I open the Iron to remove the waffle.
*The Tapioca Starch helps provide a nice crispy edge to the waffle without the addition of oil to the recipe.
Freezer directions: These are VERY freezer friendly! I let them cool on a wire rack
, and put them in a plastic freezer container with a sheet of waxed paper between each one. When I want Waffles for breakfast, I simply remove the desired number from the box, and heat them in the Toaster Oven. They actually are better after toasting than they are fresh out of the Iron!
