Waffles are a big deal around here.
When I ended the unnecessary sugar in my diet, I found that I also had to omit premade baking mixes including the mixes used for most waffles and pancakes.
Sometimes I am surprised when I learn that there has been sugar added to something that I like to eat.
You can really learn a lot when you start reading those food labels. Sugar is added to a lot of food that may surprise us. Because I am the kind of a person who likes to know what they are eating, I almost always read the label on food these days.
Making your own homemade baking mix for waffles really is not that hard to do.
I like to make my own baking mix so that I can control what is in the food that I make and also eliminate the added sugar whenever I can eliminate the added sugar.
When I eliminate the sugar from the mix, I can add fresh fruit to my breakfast.
Topping my sugar free waffles with a bit of fruit, such as blueberries or strawberries, makes for a delicious breakfast.
What do you like to top your waffles with?
I know that some folks like powdered sugar on their waffles. Syrup on waffles is always a safe choice. Luckily, there are syrups without a lot of sugar in them. I use sugar free syrup for many of the food that I make at home since sugar free syrup adds that sweet taste without all of the sugar.
I like to add lemon to my pancakes and waffles.
By 'lemon' I mean a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice or lemon extract. If you are unsure about the lemon taste in your waffles or pancakes, simply stick with some vanilla extract instead. Vanilla brings us a great taste that we like as well in our baked foods.
This is how I make my waffles without any sugar added to the mix.
