Grab Em and Go Waffle Recipe

 

Alrighty!

 

Here are the waffles that we make ALL THE TIME at the Ronne house.  Our kids are up and at em early – 6:00 a.m. early, which about made me die when we first moved to Tennessee, but I have to admit, I’ve gotten used to the early mornings  (or I’m now 40 and don’t require as much sleep).  Whatever it is, these waffles are life savers.  They are easy, filling, one bowl wonders full of nutrition, and the best part of all?  They don’t require syrup which saves you (mom and dad) the hassle of needing to clean up (house and kid).  All of my kids love them.  One little factoid, I used spelt flour in the recipe, but you can adjust the flour to your liking: whole wheat, white, bread, almond, or use a combination of a few.  We really like the nutty lightness of spelt, and it’s a healthier option than white or bread.  Check the tutorial out and then go subscribe to jessplusthemess on YouTube.  Continue reading “Grab Em and Go Waffle Recipe”
