Recipe by: Serena Ball from Teaspoon of Spice

These Maple Cheddar Potato Waffles are sweet and savory with a ‘secret’ ingredient of mashed potatoes, which makes them extra moist. They are also a great way to refuel after a workout!


  • 1 1/2 cup whole grain pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 eggs, separated into yolks and whites
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 cup cooked, mashed, cooled potatoes (from 1-2 peeled potatoes) about 6 ounces mashed
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat sharp white Cheddar cheese, shredded

Prep Time: 40min | Cook Time: 20min

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks, melted butter and milk.
  2. Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until combined; stir in potatoes.
  3. In another bowl, beat egg whites until medium-soft peaks form. Fold into batter.
  4. Coat waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about 3/4 cup (depending on your waffle iron size) better onto iron.
  5. Scatter 1 heaping tablespoon cheese over batter and close iron lid to cook until golden brown and cooked through. If desired, keep warm in a 200-degree oven while making remaining waffles. Serve with pure maple syrup.
