These sound really disgusting, I know–but they’re actually really delicious.

Whole Wheat Waffles with Tofu

This recipe ultimately makes non-dairy waffles that have a higher fiber content and lower sugar content than most treats of this nature. I use my vitamix blender to do these, but you could just as well use a whisk or hand mixer very thoroughly. I’d recommend a bowl with high sides and a narrower bottom, if you must go that route.

Makes 4-6 waffles (not meant for Belgian style molds; you’ll find it too thin of a batter)

1/2 C flour
1/2 C whole wheat flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup light soy milk
3 oz silken tofu
1 egg
1 T honey
1/2 tsp – 1 tsp cinnamon, orange zest, almond extract or other flavorings you prefer
real maple syrup

Mix dry ingredients and set aside. Mix rest of ingredients and blend very well; if in blender, on high for 1-2 minutes, if with hand mixer or whisk, until very, very smooth and thin. Slowly add dry mixture. Let sit 2 minutes before using.

Warm your syrup and plates when serving.
