Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle maker and spray with a cooking spray.

  • In a separate small bowl, add the egg whites and beat for 3-4 minutes using a stand mixer or hand mixer at medium speed until stiff peaks form.
  • In another medium bowl, add the egg yolks, ricotta, milk, oil, and vanilla and gently mix together.

Notes

Example of waffle iron - an 8” waffle maker would use about 1 cup of batter for large, whole waffles.
Make extra and freeze the waffles for up to 2 months in a freezer friendly zip bag. Then reheat them in the oven when you’re ready to use.
Substitute vegetable oil for canola oil.
Substitute unsweetened applesauce for the oil.
