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

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks, melted butter and milk, then pour mixture into dry ingredients and stir just until combined; then stir in potatoes after. 
  • In another bowl, beat egg whites until medium-soft peaks form, then fold into batter.
  • Coat waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about 3/4 cup (depending on your waffle iron size) of batter onto iron. 
  • 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.
