Spotting Breakfast - Sunday Morning Waffles

Lately I've been in the mood for "sweet" breakfast foods. I love pancakes and homemade waffles. They are a real "treat" for me, probably because I don't eat them very often and usually have egg white omelets. I got a waffle iron for Christmas two years ago, and it has been a "blessing". Homemade waffles are AMAZING, so when I came across aggieskitchen's Sunday Morning Waffles I knew that would be "breakfast".

Sunday Morning Waffles
Recipe from Aggie's Kitchen

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup turbinado sugar (or regular sugar)
3 TB baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups lowfat buttermilk (can substitute lowfat milk)
3 eggs
1/3 cup applesauce
2 TB flax meal
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, applesauce and flax meal to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Pour approximately 1/3 cup of the batter per waffle into the waffle maker and cook according to waffle maker directions.

Serve with a small bit of butter, maple syrup and fruit.

If you want to give homemade waffles a "go", try this recipe. It's simple to prepare and you probably already have most of the ingredients. If you don't, the recipe even tells you what you can substitute... For a flavored maple syrup - add a few teaspoons (to taste) of your favorite jam or preserves (not jelly) to the syrup and heat either on the stove or in the microwave.

Here's to the upcoming berry season and full bellies.
