Here’s a quick homemade breakfast idea for busy weekday mornings! Consider making a batch of waffles, freezing them and then quickly popping them in the toaster when you are ready to eat. Not only are they great tasting, but they are also healthier and less expensive than their store bought counterpart!
Don’t have a waffle iron? Use your favorite pancake recipe instead and freeze!
Recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com
2 cups flour (all-purpose or wheat)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 3/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions: Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add in the rest of ingredients and mix until smooth. Spray waffle iron with nonstick spray. Pour mix onto iron and cook until golden brown – about 5 minutes or so. Place waffles on cooling racks. Serve warm and add desired toppings. Makes about 7-8 waffles in my Cuisinart WAF-300 Belgian Waffle Maker.
Freezing Directions: I like to double this recipe and freeze waffles flat on a cookie sheet for a few hours. Use parchment paper between each layer so waffles don’t stick. When completely frozen, place waffles in freezer bags. To remove any excess air in freezer bag, just insert a straw into the freezer bag after filling bag with waffles, close bag around straw, and suck out the air. Waffles should stay good for up to a few months. To reheat, just pop a frozen waffle into the toaster.
