I love Saturday mornings. Not only do we all get to sleep in, but we actually have time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. My kids love pancakes and waffles. I’m sharing my kid’s favorite waffle recipe that I adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbook. It’s wholesome, easy and tasty.
You can make this a fun breakfast activity for the little ones by allowing them to get creative with the toppings. Kids love to decorate their food. Getting your kids involved in the kitchen is one of the best ways to help create healthy eating habits to last a lifetime.
If casseroles are more of your weekend breakfast jam, then you should definitely try this Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole. It’s easy and the whole family will devour it! If you prefer pancakes, then I’ve got you covered from protein-packed pancake recipes to sweet potato pancakes! Just type “pancakes” in my search bar and find your new favorite.
Kid’s Favorite Waffles
Recipe adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbook.
Preheat a waffle iron. Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
In another bowl, blend together:
1 stick smart balance blend butter
1 1/2 cups milk (I use 1%)
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Combine with a few swift strokes with the whisk. It should resemble thick muffin batter. Do not over mix. Most waffle irons will use about heaping 1/2 cup batter per waffle. Cook waffles until lightly brown. Enjoy with real maple syrup, fresh fruit or sugar free syrup.
