Super Healthy Kids Whole Wheat Waffles

M recently went on a cooking rampage and spent the day making healthy meals and snacks. She made several loaves of fresh zucchini bread, mini cupcake frittatas, and a load of flavorful whole grain waffles. One of her favorite go-to websites is called superhealthykids.com so M rifled through their pages to find what she thought would be a delicious breakfast recipe. She settled on the whole wheat waffle recipe. Earlier in the week, M and I had visited a local farm stand where we picked out loads of beautiful berries. She thought they could be used to add a bit of pizzaz to her breakfast accompanied by a hefty dollop of creamy Greek yogurt.
So if you’re in the mood, head on over to superhealthykids.com and check out this great recipe for waffles. Dress them up with your favorite healthy toppings. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer and pop one in the toaster for a fresh baked taste every morning. As you know, breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day!

Super Healthy Kids Whole Wheat Waffles

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

5 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    • I received the waffle iron as a wedding gift (years ago). The family loves waffles so this is a worthwhile small appliance to have. It’s a Belgian waffle maker so the waffle turn out thick and plentiful. Yum-yum!

  1. Our waffle iron is broken… too bad. The kids and I love a special waffle treat. 🙂 You could probably use maple syrup or agave in place of the white sugar for extra flavor. I like to use white wheat flour when white flour is called for; it tastes the same and has fiber, etc. The toppings look amazing. I love Greek yogurt and berries in the summer! M is a great cook!

  2. Never really tried waffles but I am sure these are something my daughter will love. Will look into getting a waffle maker – they seem like a good appliance to have, especially with the oven not working!
