Health Benefits of Afridelight

Prevents Type 2 Diabetes

Afridelight is rich in magnesium, which is a mineral that acts as a co-factor for more than 300 enzymes. These enzymes are involved in the body’s functional use of insulin and glucose secretion. The FDA permits foods that contain whole grain by at least 51% weight and are also low in saturated fat and cholesterol, which means a lower risk of coronary ailments and certain types of cancer. Moreover, regular consumption of whole grain wheat like in Afridelight promotes healthy blood sugar control. People who suffer from diabetes are able to keep their sugar levels under control by regular consumption of Afridelight.

More Than a Meal Series

 Afridelight Waffles

{Note: the yield is going to depend on the size/shape of your waffle maker. The recipe made 3 big belgian waffles in mine.}


1 1/2 cups Afridelight flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
1/3 cup canola oil


Preheat your waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you want to keep the waffles warm, preheat your oven to 200 F then place a wire rack inside of a rimmed baking sheet and pop in the oven.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the egg, milk and canola oil. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix just until barely combined (lumpy batter is a-ok!).

Fill the wells of your waffle maker and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions (4 minutes in my waffle maker). To keep the first waffles warm while you finish up the batter, transfer to the wire rack in the oven. Serve with your favorite toppings!
