Low Fat Pumpkin Waffles
This is a variation of my low fat waffle recipe for those with heart issues. Only 3 grams of fat, but very filling with satisfying pumpkin spice flavour.
- 2 large eggs separated
- 1 large egg white
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp pumpkin spices
- 1 Pinch salt
- First, separate the eggs, putting the whites in 1 bowl and the egg yolks into another. You could use all three egg yolks, but if you have concerns about cholesterol, leave one out and save for another dish like truffled egg toast*
- Add the flour, baking powder, pumpkin spices and pumpkin puree to the egg yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter.
- Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the batter. It is now ready to use. Thin with a little milk if the batter is too thick.
- Crank up the heat on your waffle iron and lightly oil. Spoon a portion in the middle of the iron and close the lid so that it will spread to the edges without overflowing. Your waffle should be done in a minute, but keep an eye on it.
*Use your extra egg yolk for truffled egg toast.
