Most mornings, the hubby is responsible for getting breakfast for Mini Me since he works from home and I leave for work at 6am. So, in order to make sure there are healthy, easy to fix breakfast options, we set out to makeover our traditional waffle recipe. When we run low on the stock of waffles in the freezer, we usually make a couple big batches on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Of course, that morning we get to sample our hot, fresh creations as our breakfast or brunch. Then, the rest are cooled, divided and frozen.
I always get a nice little bonus when I make waffles too. Mini Me cleans up around the house after breakfast!
We’ve been making our own waffles for a couple years because the last thing I wanted to feed her were waffles containing these ingredients:
In my opinion, the best waffles are fluffy and crispy with fruit on top. Even as a kid, I was not much of a syrup fan and usually ate my waffles plain (dry) or with cream cheese and jam.
We’ve tried a number of variations on our waffle recipe in the last 2 years, but have been using our current recipe for 6+ months. I haven’t tried the recipe with gluten free flour yet, so that will be next on my list.
The first step is to heat the waffle iron. Then, mix all the ingredients together.
Brush some oil onto the waffle iron so the batter doesn’t stick. Then, add the manufacturer’s recommended amount of batter to the waffle iron. My iron came with its own little measuring cup, so I use that.
Cook the waffles until your waffle iron indicates they are done.
Cool on wire racks. Divide each waffle in half and place in plastic freezer baggies. Freeze.
When you’re ready to eat some of these yummy waffles, remove from the freezer, place in a toaster oven to heat through, then top with your favorite fresh of frozen (thawed) fruit!
