These waffles are healthy and an excellent alternative to dairy and refined sugar. You can use gluten-free flour instead of all-purpose flour to make them if you are sensitive to gluten.
What should you use instead of sugar?
You can use any other alternatives to refined sugar. In this recipe, I have used maple syrup and orange juice. These are naturally sweet but you can as well use other sweeteners like coconut sugar, honey, or stervia.
Why should you use natural sugars instead of refined sugars?
When refined sugars are consumed in large amounts they are quickly absorbed into the body which causes a spike in insulin and blood sugar levels.
Refined sugar contains zero fiber and nutrients. It lowers the level of good cholesterol but increases those of bad cholesterol in the blood which can contribute to obesity, weight gain, and other lifestyle diseases.
Natural sugars are rich in fiber and nutrients that helps to nourish and keep the body healthy. The fiber in the natural sugars helps to lower your metabolism and keep you fuller for a long time.
