I hear that blueberries are really good for you, hence my need to make Skinny Blueberry Parfait Waffles. Yup, I hear they’re high in antioxidants. I hear they have a highly-active fat-burning component. I hear they protect your brain, fight free radicals to prevent wrinkles and can even protect your body against cancer. I hear all of these things and I realize that blueberries are awesome for all kinds of reasons, but to be honest, I just eat them because they’re really, really delicious!I love blueberries for their sweet flavor, but the idea of mixing them with vanilla and sugar just makes sense. Thus, I created my Skinny Blueberry Parfait Waffles. Here’s what you’ll need to make these:
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!
- Waffle Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup pastry flour (110 calories - if using whole wheat pastry flour, you may need to add one - two tablespoons of milk)
- 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum (2 calories)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (2 calories)
- 1/6 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons Truvia
- 1 teaspoon sprinkles (20 calories)
- 2 tablespoons liquid egg-whites (17 calories)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (2 calories)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (14 calories)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (12 calories)
- 1/4 cup blueberries, frozen or thawed (20 calories)
- Blueberry Vanilla Glaze Ingredients (double if you want):
- Blueberry juice
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (3 calories)
- 1 tablespoon powdered Swerve or organic powdered sugar (30 calories)
- Mix the dry ingredients for your waffles in a medium-sized bowl. Include sprinkles. Do not include blueberries.
- Add in wet ingredients for your waffles, one-by-one, mixing well after each addition. Do not include blueberries.
- Now, measure out your blueberries. If frozen, microwave for approximately 30 seconds or until warm and juices run loose. If thawed, pour blueberries into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for approximately 15 seconds, or until juices run loose. Spoon blueberries in batter, making sure that juice remains in bowl - you will use it for the vanilla glaze. Set aside bowl. Carefully stir blueberries through batter.
- Power on waffle maker. This is my favorite waffle maker. Allow it to heat for at least three minutes before using.
- Once your waffle-maker has heated up, pour your batter onto the hot plate and close the lid. If your waffle-maker is not non-stick, you will need to spray it with an organic cooking spray, such as Spectrum, before using. Once lid is closed, you may hear some sizzling or see some steam, but don’t freak out. That is completely normal!
- 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.
- While your waffles are baking or once they have finished, mix together the ingredients for your blueberry vanilla glaze.
- Drizzle glaze over waffles.
