Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons oil of choice
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries, chopped
  • 2 cups part skim ricotta
  • -- Strawberry sauce --
  • 3 cups frozen strawberries, slightly softened
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat waffle iron. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa, flax seed, cornstarch, and baking powder to combine.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together oil, milk, yogurt, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk together until smooth and no lumps are present. Fold in chopped strawberries.
  5. Spray inside of waffle iron with cooking spray. Ladle batter on waffle iron, being careful not to pour too much. About ½ cup of batter per waffle square is a good starting place. Once waffle is done cooking, remove with tongs and put straight onto bare, pre-heated oven racks to keep warm until serving.
  6. While the waffles are cooking, prepare strawberry sauce. Put 3 cups of slightly softened strawberries, cornstarch and sugar in blender or food processor. Pulse until strawberries are mealy and no large pieces remain. Pour contents into a saucepan and heat over medium low heat until a gentle boil occurs, about 5-8 minutes. Reduce to lowest setting until ready to serve.
  7. To serve, top waffles with ½ cup ricotta per person, then pour strawberry sauce on top.
