Green Good Morning Waffles

What you need

  • 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs – separated
  • 1 3/4 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (cashew, soy, oat works too!)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 scoops Shaklee organic greens
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp baking power
  • 1 Tbsp Stevia (or other sugar substitute)

Let’s do this thing!

Preheat your waffle iron (and actually you could probably turn these into pancakes just as easily if you do not have an iron).

Separate your yolks and put them in a medium sized bowl. Keep your whites and place them in a small-ish bowl (something you can get a hand mixer in). Now add applesauce, almond milk, vanilla to your yolks. The lunch box applesauce containers work awesome! Just put one of those in. Mix well.

Add your dry ingredients right into your mixed up wet. Stir it up – expect it to be a bit lumpy.

Next, take your whites and whip them with a hand mixer on low until they are nice and fluffy. add your whites to you batter and fold in, get the lumps of the whipped whites out, but don’t go crazy and over mix. This is what makes your waffles light and fluffy.

You know your waffle iron better than me, but for mine I used about 3/4 c. of batter per waffle set on medium heat. I feel like it took about 10 min. p er waffle, but I did do a couple checks to determine when they were done.
