Oreo Waffle

Whoop here it is.  As some of you know my brother is home.  Somehow I’m going to relate this waffle to my brother being home.  I don’t really know how that is working out but I’m going with it.

I don’t even know how I thought of it but I think it’s one of my better waffle creations.

The “Healthier” Oreo Waffle

chocolatewaffle

As a kid, I really enjoyed oreos.  As a human I really enjoy oreos…however, you can’t really go eat oreos for every meal and expect to run well or feel great.  That isn’t quite how life works.  So with that I sought on trying to make a healthier oreo waffle.  It’s also extremely easy and the hardest part would be making the frosting…or filling.

(Because I guess you can eat that more often)

Ingredients:

For the waffle:

2/3 cup flour

¼ cup dark cocoa powder

¼ cup sweetener (I used ¼ cup stevia)

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

1 tablespoon oil

½ cup milk

Directions: Add wet ingredients and then mix in dry.

For the frosting:

½ cup vanilla greek yogurt

2 packets truvia

2 tablespoons French vanilla creamer

2 tablespoons syrup

Mix the frosting and top on waffle.

I don’t have much to say about this except for that since creating it, I feel like a true healthy living blogger by making a healthier version of something.  (This doesn’t happen often ha).  I have probably had this waffle (and shared with my family 4 times in the last week…which is a lot of waffles).  I still like my oreos but I enjoy this and has already become one of my top favorite waffle recipes.

Questions for you:

Do you like oreos?

What recipe have you “healthified”?

  1. I “healthify” a lot of things, mostly by using Greek yogurt instead of oil and sometimes fewer eggs (sub out egg whites), things like that. Or whole wheat flour blends, just little changes which is kinda what you did :). This looks really tasty and it must be if you guys ate so many of them in the last few days.

    Oreos… I don’t really eat the cookies much, actually. BUT I love everything Oreo flavored, like cookies and cream ice cream. I bet I’d like this waffle too.

    • I don’t sub out egg whites for waffles because it messes with how crispy they become. They just turn out soggy in my experience. I have used egg whites in other things, but I really like eggs.

      • Yeah, it depends on the recipe and what the egg in it is used for. I agree it wouldn’t work in waffles, as the egg would “bind” the waffle so it wouldn’t turn out soggy. Sometimes it does work in other recipes- especially if something calls for a lot of eggs and you don’t want to use as many. But for something that called for “1 egg”, that wouldn’t be worth it :).

  2. I healthified rice krispie squares this weekend by using AB and honey instead of marshmallows and butter. I have to admit that I’ve been a little hard on healthified recipes in the past, probably because of the issues I was dealing with surrounding food, but lots of healthier eats taste pretty darn good and don’t leave you feeling like crap afterwards. So yes to Oreos and yes to healthier Oreo things 🙂

  3. I don’t tend to “healthify” recipes because I just don’t cook. The closest to changing up a recipe for me is using less boxed cheese and subbing it with real cheese- or using skim milk instead of whole because that’s what I have in the house. I love oreos but don’t eat them that often unless you count cookies and cream ice cream on the regular. I would absolutely eat this though- too bad I can’t make waffles on the boat.

  4. My grandma eats oreos for breakfast 😀 So they have a VERY special place in my heart therefore this is my favorite recipe of yours!

  5. I like to make recipes more healthified but not to the point they taste like shit. Most times, I’ll just replace half the butter with applesauce or greek yogurt but I will never completely rid myself of the oil or butter because that’s when things just start to taste like dirt. These look pretty darn delicious, though, you little healthy living blogger 😉 I kind of want to make the waffles and fill them with straight up marshmallow fluff. I wonder if you can mix fluff and greek yogurt together?

    • Exactly, what is the point of making a recipe that tastes like crap? I don’t really mind calling myself a healthy living blogger…that’s what I’m trying to do…as well with running LOL.

  6. Oreos are fabulous but I have to crave them specifically. Which does happen, probably more than it should.

    I healthify things, but only to a point because I still want it to taste yummy,and still want the general flavors to be there. I.E. I have a “healthified” baked cheesecake recipe, but use half light cream cheese, and 1/2 regular, etc. It’s not going to kill you. I do believe that some things should just be left unhealthy though, they taste fabulous and you wanna enjoy it!

  7. This post makes me sad that I don’t have a waffle maker. That waffle looks amazing! I think I might have to add one to my wedding registry so that I can try out this recipe. 🙂 Seriously, Oreos (or Oreo-inspired flavors) and carb-laden breakfast foods? What could be better!

  8. I like Oreos when I eat them, but I rarely eat them. I’ve bought them a few times in the past but they just stay in the cabinets forever!

  9. I’ll healthify within reason – as in, I might sub out half of the butter in a recipe for applesauce, or half the sugar with maple syrup, or half-3/4 of the flour for white…enough to make it healthier, but not enough to ruin it or make it taste too ‘healthy’.
    I can’t even remember the last time I broke out my waffle maker…I may have to dig that out soon.

  10. Okay so I don’t really like oreos….I’m that girl that eats the cream fillin and gives the cookies to my friends hahaha. BUT oreo waffles I can get behind, especially with copious amounts of the frosting…..if you wanted to de-healthify it (the horror!!!) you could even add crushed up oreos into the batter lol!

  11. Love the new layout and the pictures (GORGEOUS – I would make the G bigger but I can’t). I make ice cream healthy by adding fruit to it.

    (PS, I’m having another giveaway on my blog – this time for RoadIDs)

  12. Girl after my own heart 🙂
    Cookies n Cream (anything Oreo really) is always my go to. I am a sucker for Cookies N Cream marketing. Case in point – impulse buy of the new Cookies & Cream Cereal by General Mills. I usually have a healthy twist to my recipes. My wafflers are always made with buckwheat or whole wheat pastry flour depending on my moood.
