Whole-Grain Waffle Recipe: The Low-Sodium Way to Start Your Day by Melissa Vickers

Whole-Grain Waffle Recipe: The Low-Sodium Way to Start Your Day

Start your morning right with these low-sodium whole-grain waffles – or make them as pancakes. These healthy waffles are whole grain, with oat bran and whole-wheat flour, and sodium is minimal.

You can choose how to sweeten this homemade waffle batter recipe – either with some added sugar or use sweetened applesauce, which I did because it was what I had. And try it with egg whites only if you are cutting back on cholesterol, too! The one ingredient in this mix that you may have to order rather than pick up in your local grocery store is the sodium-free baking powder (see link to order in the ingredient list). It’s an obvious place to drop the sodium content that comes in regular baking powder.

Serve these wholesome homemade waffles for breakfast, brunch or as a snack. Top these hearty waffles with some fresh fruit and you are good to go for the day!
