Whole Wheat Chocolate Waffles

Hope all had a relaxing weekend and are busy back again in yet another week.Today's recipe is a whole wheat chocolate waffles.I recently added a new appliance in my kitchen,the most awaited waffle maker.Kids are a big fan of waffles and that's the only reason of buying this new gadget at home.But I never wanted to try the restaurant style waffles loaded with all purpose flour.I wished to sneak in a healthy waffle that can be tried at home with whole wheat flour.I know the first thing that comes to your mind is a dense waffle with whole wheat flour but I must admit that these are very light and soft in texture and my kids really enjoyed having these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and strawberries.This is a very healthy alternative and a varied option to regular breakfast,enjoy !!!!

wheat flour 1 1/2 cups
baking powder 2 tsp
cocoa powder 1/2 cup
sugar granulated 4 tbsp
eggs 2 separated
canola oil or any vegetable oil 1/3 cup
milk 1 1/2 cup
vanilla extract 1 tsp
salt to taste

-Sift the wheat flour,cocoa powder,granulated sugar,baking powder twice,mix it well.
-Beat the egg yolk and milk.Mix in oil and vanilla extract.Add in the mixed dry ingredients in batches.Mix slowly without lumps.(If there are lumps then don't bother much but don't overmix it)
-Using an electric mixer,beat the egg whites till stiff peaks.Fold in the egg whites to the batter without mixing it too much.
-Heat a waffle maker according to manufacturer's instruction.Spray a cooking spray all around.Pour half cup of batter in each or pour using a laddle or until the plate is full reaching all over.
-Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or as per each manufacturer instruction.Using a fork gently flip it unto a wire rack and let them cool.(Don't stack the waffles one upon the other when it is hot as they become soggy)
-Enjoy them with chocolate chips or chocolate sauce or whipped cream or just a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

* Sifting the flour is an important step as this will aerate the batter well.
* Add a pinch of salt when beating egg whites and also the bowl in which you're beating egg white should be grease free.
* Add sugar as per sweet tooth.As per this you get a bitter sweet chocolate waffles which tastes good with  a scoop of vanilla ice cream.Add chocolate chips if you wish that way too.

@Nivedhanams Sowmya You can omit the eggs dear,still works good.Just give an additional minute or 2 to cook as waffles without eggs will take longer to cook.Also,add half of all purpose flour and wheat flour,I think the texture will be taken care of.These are my suggestions,I haven't tried these personally without eggs:)
