Cinnamon waffles with tropical fruit Salsa


A waffle machine is an inexpensive kitchen appliance that’s fun to use when you have a little more time—weekend brunch is perfect. Use different fruits to create your own combination.

1. Combine both flours and the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.

2. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, oil and egg substitute. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and whisk together until well blended.

3. Preheat a 6-inch waffle iron, and lightly coat it with cooking spray. Spoon one-third of the batter over the waffle pan, covering it completely. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the steam¬ing stops; repeat this procedure with the remaining batter.

4. Combine the mango, kiwis and maple syrup in a bowl and divide over the waffles. Serve with extra maple syrup if desired.
