Heart Healthy Perfect Waffle

Heart Healthy Perfect Waffle

As we continue the tradition at our house of making waffles every Saturday morning…we decided to develop a more heart healthy version for 2020.  We switched up the ingredients in the test kitchen until we came up with the Heart Healthy Perfect Waffle Recipe.  We hope you will make healthy adjustments to every part of your life in 2020…because we want you around for a long time!  So cheers to a healthy 2020!

Text says "2020Heart Healthy Recipe". The letters are white and the background has a white plate with heart shaped waffles on it.

(We added some ingredient substitutions for a more heart healthy waffle for 2020!)


Ingredients for the Healthy Waffle include:

1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

1/2 Cup Almond Flour

1 Tablespoon Cornmeal

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Buttermilk

2 eggs separated

3 Tablespoons California Olive Oil


Whisk both flours, cornmeal,  baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.  In a separate medium bowl whisk the buttermilk, egg yolks, and California Olive Oil together.  Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-low until foamy, then increase to high until stiff peaks (3-4 minutes)…this is one of the secrets to the “Heart Healthy Perfect Waffle” Recipe.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients in a slow steady stream while mixing with spatula. Near the end of the liquid use a folding motion.  Next, gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

(Heart Healthy deliciousness!)

We set our Cuisinart waffle maker on level 4 heat (There are heating levels 1-5).  Butter the waffle iron surface. Add 1/2 cup batter to the waffle iron and close lid, allowing the waffle to cook for 3 min.  While cooking, Spread 1 teaspoon California Olive Oil on the plate.  After 3 min, remove waffle and place on top of olive oil on the plate, then butter the top with a small amount.  For the heart healthy waffles (best experience) use only real maple syrup
