Healthy

To cut down on fat, this recipe only uses the egg whites. Then cottage cheese and oats are used as a low calorie substitution for flour and milk. Enough flavor is added with some sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and apple. Overall, you have a dense, delicious waffle low in fat and calories.

There are benefits to cooking with cinnamon, it’sĀ a healthy choice in and of itself.

Keep this meal healthy by topping the waffles with Zoi Vanilla Greek yogurt. It’s much better for you than syrup and I think it tastes amazing!

Delicious

Waffles that deliver flavor along with a nice denseness are perfection, in my opinion. These waffles never disappoint, except when they’re all gone.

These waffles have the perfect boost of flavor with the added apple. I’ve tried pears, but apples give it the essence of sweet with the cinnamon that’s my favorite.
