Healthy Decadence

Dessert for Breakfast? Why not, with this sweet treat that is low fat, low calorie and full of fiber.
Chocolate Cornmeal Waffles
3/4 cup stone-ground cornmeal
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 oz semisweet chocolate, finely grated
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup 2% milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, separated
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1/4 cup nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt (per square)
1 tablespoon chocolate sauce (per square)
Fresh raspberries (optional)
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)
Heat waffle iron. Combine first seven ingredients in a bowl. Stir in milk, oil and 1/2 cup water until just combined. Add vanilla, but don’t stir. Add yolks to batter; stir until just combined. Beat egg whites in another bowl until they just hold firm peaks; fold whites into batter until combined. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Cook batter in batches, three to six minutes. Break waffles into four pieces; top each square with frozen yogurt and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Garnish with raspberries and confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
