Low Calorie Christmas Waffles


For the waffles:

For the Christmasy toppings:

  • Fresh strawberries, sliced to create Santa hat shapes
  • Fresh banana slices or banana chips for Santa's beard
  • Mini chocolate chips for Santa's eyes
  • Greek yogurt or low-fat yogurt
  • Sugar-free maple syrup or honey (use sparingly for fewer calories)
  • Chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts) for added crunch (optional)
  • A dusting of powdered sugar for a snowy effect (optional)


  1. Begin by preheating your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the CleanFoods RawPancake Red Velvet mix and almond milk. Stir until the batter is smooth and well combined. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk if necessary.
  3. Lightly grease the waffle iron with cooking spray or a small amount of oil to prevent sticking. Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron and cook according to the waffle maker's instructions. Typically, it takes about 3-5 minutes for the waffles to become crispy and golden brown.
  4. Once the waffles are cooked, arrange them on a serving plate. Transform them into Santa Claus faces by placing fresh strawberry slices at the top to create Santa's hat. Use banana slices or chips for Santa's beard and mini chocolate chips for his eyes.
  5. Along with the Santa decorations, add a dollop of Greek yogurt at the bottom of each waffle for Santa's fluffy white beard. Optionally, sprinkle some chopped nuts for a festive crunch, and you can also dust the waffles with powdered sugar to create a snowy effect.
  6. Present your Christmasy waffles while they're still warm. Drizzle them with sugar-free maple syrup or honey for a touch of sweetness. Enjoy these adorable and low-calorie Christmas waffles that will surely bring a smile to your face and your holiday spirit to life.
