Whole Wheat Waffles

Whole Wheat Waffles

I am going to interrupt our regularly scheduled program (What I Ate Wednesday), and bring you a fun and healthy breakfast recipe instead.  Why?  Simply because it is Thanksgiving this week, and I think having a fun breakfast on Thanksgiving is just as important as Thanksgiving dinner :).  I promise I will bring back What I Ate next week.

Whole Wheat Waffles

This particular recipe is a simple Whole Wheat Waffles recipe.  It is a fairly traditional waffle recipe with a few “extra” ingredients.  It’s one of those healthy recipes, that is completely safe to serve to family or even friends because it’s not that “far out there.”  Plus all of the ingredients are pantry staples, so you shouldn’t have to go buy a bunch of groceries.

I like this recipe for Thanksgiving morning, because it is so simple, but also delicious.  And it doesn’t compete with all of the other flavors in a traditional Thanksgiving spread.

Whenever I make this recipe, I like to double it and freeze the extras.  My kids LOVE to have waffles in the morning, so it is nice to have some healthy and budget friendly waffles ready to go.  All I have to do is heat them up and serve.  My husband even likes it, and it makes me feel like a super mom and wife when I am prepared with delicious and healthy meals that my family actually requests.
