Skinny S’more Waffles remind me of my childhood. Let me explain. I went to camp growing up. We didn’t make s’mores or anything, but when I eat s’mores, I think about camp. You understand that, right? I did go on a trip with my fiancé’s family, and we stayed in a house on a beach an hour-or-so outside of Portland. We made a fire in the sand, watched fireworks and roasted marshmallows. Ryan had to roast my marshmallow for me because I’m so clumsy, I would’ve dropped it before I could’ve sandwiched it between my graham crackers. I remember how my chocolate bar melted immediately as the toasted marshmallow struck it. It was magical. I knew in that moment why kids at camp always demanded a bonfire with s’mores, and why counselors were usually cool with it. There is no quiet like a child stuffing his or her face with a marshmallow mess. Needless to say, my kitchen was pretty quiet this morning.Here’s some awesome equipment for your Skinny S’more Waffles:
Croquade Croque Monsieur Waffle Plate I Breville Smart Waffle Pro I Nordic Ware Waffle Stick Pan I Williams-Sonoma Ultimate Silicone Waffle Tongs, Red I Belleville Cheese Knives I Moderno Glass Dinner Plate I Ceres Gravy Boat
Favorites? I am obsessed with that Croquade Croque Monsieur Waffle Plate – I mean, look at that bubbly, lightly fried cheese. I also have to have the Nordic Ware Waffle Stick Pan. I drool just thinking about dunking them in a a bowl of Joseph’s Maltitol-Sweetened Maple Syrup, only 35 calories per 1/4 cup (or marinara sauce if doing cheese stick waffles)! And finally, give me those Moderno Glass Dinner Plates!
- 1/3 cups pastry flour (110 calories – if using whole wheat pastry flour, you may want to increase milk by one tablespoon)
- 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum (2 calories - optional to make batter thicker)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (2 calories)
- 2 tablespoons Hershey’s Special Dark Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (20 calories)
- 1/6 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons liquid egg-whites (17 calories)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (2 calories)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (14 calories)
- 2 1/2 tablespoons Truvia
- 1 teaspoon I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, "Lite" (13 calories)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (12 calories)
- 1/2 sheet graham cracker, crushed for sprinkling (32.5 calories)
- 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows (40 calories)
- In a medium sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients followed by wet ingredients, excluding graham crackers, marshmallows and butter.
- When ingredients have been well mixed, turn on your waffle maker. Allow it to heat for at least three minutes before using.
- If your waffle-maker (favorite) is not non-stick, you will need to spray it with an organic cooking spray, such as Spectrum, before using.
- Once your waffle-maker has heated up, pour half of your batter onto the hot plate.
- Sprinkle marshmallows on top of batter (half of which you can save and add on top of waffles once done if you’d like) on hot plate and follow by the remaining waffle mix, trying to fold over marshmallows completely. Close the lid. Once lid is closed, you may hear some sizzling or see some steam, but don’t freak out. That is completely normal!
- While your waffle is cooking, crumble the graham cracker well.
- Your waffles will need to cook for approximately two – three minutes. This completely depends on your waffle-maker, though. There is no way to measure exactly what temperature your waffles are cooking at, so keep an eye on it. Try not to lift it until it is done cooking, which you will get a feel for the more you use it. Mine only takes about two minutes before it is nice, fluffy and just a little crisp in the center.
- Take your waffle out and decorate with graham cracker crumbles and any remaining marshmallows. Drizzle with butter.
