Whole Grain Yogurt Waffles
Because really what could be better that waking up on the weekend and filling your belly with warm waffles?
3/4 cup of a whole grains mix (If you cannot find this in your local market, it's ok, just substitute it with whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup of GROUND Flax Seeds
1 tsp of salt
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/3 cup of brown sugar
4 T. melted butter (cooled a bit after melting)
3 large eggs
1 3/4 cups plain yogurt, click here for homemade recipe.
Directions:1. Whisk together all dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl whisk together butter, eggs and yogurt until smooth. Mix two mixtures together.
2. Cook on the waffle iron and serve with honey or maple syrup.
Getting Kids to Eat Healthy: Kids love choices, my kids aren't always happy to eat all the healthy things I make them BUT when I give them choices it makes a world of difference. Choices of different honey to choose from, letting them pick what kind of berries to top the waffle with or even what plate to eat it on.
Flax Seeds: I felt so silly the day that a nutrition expert told me that all the flax seed I thought I was so lovingly putting in our food was doing no good. Flax seed has to be GROUND to actually be digested, you can buy it ground so now I do!
