Waffles are one of my favorite make-ahead freezer breakfasts for my kiddos because they heat up so well. Plus, I can pack lots of nutrients in them and they never know! I double or triple this recipe for Kitchen Prep Days.Cool them and then store in a freezer bag.
I make this using fresh milled grain, and to increase the nutritional value you can substitute half of the oil or butter for pureed vegetables or fruits. Below are some of my favorite variations to add a little something special! Leave me your creative ideas in the comments.
- sweet potatoes
- chocolate chips (we like mini’s)
- cinnamon and/or nutmeg
- peanut butter
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar (turbinado, sucanat or honey)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cup milk (you can use half milk, half water if you are doubling or tripling)
- 3/4 cup oil or butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
- Mix all wet ingredients in one bowl, mix all dry ingredients in another bowl. Combine both just until mixed.
- Pour into heated waffle iron.
Tip: If the batter is thick, add water until it is runny enough to pour into waffle iron.
