A Fat Man's Journey (Working my way back…)

An Attempt to Journey from Fat to Fit in a Lifetime. Eat right, Eat less, Move more

Waffle and Pancake Batter

3 Comments


We have used this recipe for a few months now and we really enjoy it.  It is so easy to make that we no longer buy the boxed mixes.  The boys love it because Dad makes it fresh just for them.  Missus loves it because it is one more thing that I cook.  We toss in blue berries or strawberries sometimes…
Instead of maple syrup I warm up unsweetened apple sauce as a topping……
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups low-fat milk (we use lactose free, 2% fat)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional, we don’t use it but if you like your waffles sweeter…)

Mix wet ingredients together, add dry ingredients, mix until slightly lumpy. Do Not Over Mix…

Ladle on to your waffle iron according to the manufacturers instructions. Serve golden brown.

Comes to about 164 calories per waffle if you omit the sugar and make 8 waffles……. all depends on the waffle iron. The entire batch is about 1320 calories so divide 1320 by the number of waffles you make and you have the calories per waffle (of course).  Adding the sugar adds only about 6 calories per waffle….

Also makes good pancakes……The silly reference to Alcohol in the nutritional profile is because of the tiny amount of alcohol in the vanilla extract.

  1. Where did you find the nutritional values calculator? That’s pretty neat.
