Waffles are a go-to breakfast food for many people. There are frozen waffles, homemade, Belgian waffles, Norwegian waffles, and everything in between. However, finding a waffle that can help keep you on track for your diet and weight loss or just a generally healthy lifestyle can be a hard thing to do. That is why Benedicte Engen created Viking Waffles.
These Viking Waffles are great to have, especially when you’re hosting a themed party. Kids and adults alike will surely love them! Then, you can even add in more Viking merch here to make the whole event look more put-together.
Benedicte started off with a plan to go to medical school to become a doctor. She quickly realized that this was not the path intended for her. She decided to give business a try feeling that she had nothing to lose if she failed. That is where her waffle adventure began.
A lot has changed for Benedicte and her business due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Like many other businesses, shortages have affected her business. She has been able to overcome the challenges and work hard to make sure her waffles were still in stock for the people who enjoy them.
Benedicte is hoping to continue to grow despite the challenges of Covid-19 and all that 2020 has brought. They hope to be able to launch their product in Europe as well in order to grow and expand the market reach of Viking Waffles.
Along with the healthy Viking waffles made by Benedicte, here are other healthy waffle recipes for you to try out:
1. Gluten-Free Banana-Oat Waffles
The key to making this kind of waffle is to replace wheat flour with oats. The outcome will still be very delicious, like something in between an oatmeal cookie and a banana bread.
2. Chocolate And Buckwheat Waffles
If you’ve got kids to feed, give them something sweet but still healthy. The buckwheat is what makes the recipe rich in protein, which is also highly needed for growing children.
3. Chai Waffles With Berry Compote
For a fruitier kind of waffle, this is one is also great to try out. The waffles that come out with this recipe have that fruity, spicy taste. It’s perfect to combine with your chai latte.
4. Flourless Peanut Butter Waffles
Peanut butter waffles are healthy because of the nutrients that are packed in one serving of peanut butter. You can choose to put honey, maple syrup, or any other form of healthy syrup. Sugar-free jelly is also an excellent, healthier alternative.
5. Single-Serve Vegan Protein Waffles
As its name implies, the protein source in this kind of waffle comes from vegetables. It’s a mix of blueberries and store-bought vanilla spice protein. For some added sweetness, instead of the usual sugar, this recipe calls for coconut sugar.
6. Vegan Carrot Waffles
This is just like any other waffle recipe, except that a whole cup of finely grated carrots is added. It’s a great recipe to cheat in some vegetables for your toddler who may not otherwise want to have waffles. You can have this for their breakfast or school lunch, then complete the healthy day with these quick instant pot recipes for dinner.
7. Blue Cornmeal Waffles
Looking for creative ways to add color to your pancakes? Blue cornmeal is a healthier alternative to artificial colored sweeteners. If blue cornmeal is unavailable, then yellow cornmeal is just as good, too.
