• Gluten Free Super Food Waffles

    Breakfast for Dinner

    These green waffles may not look nearly as delicious as they taste. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly they became a kid-friendly favorite. Sunday meal planning involves each member of our family picking one dinner for the week. My seven and four year old boys make sure these super food waffles appear on the menu more often than not. A full bag of spinach boosts their green intake for the day, and best of all has no taste. This is an easy way to sneak some extra veggies into meals. Left over waffles freeze well and make quick/easy breakfasts. The recipe is adapted from Joy of Cooking and can be adjusted with different types of flour depending on preference. We have found that brown rice flour is a good gluten free option and makes the waffles extra crispy. One full scoop of Mila adds in 3,000 mg of Omega-3s, 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Serve with bacon, sausage or eggs for more protein.

    Here is another variation:
    Spinach quinoa waffles
    1.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    1 cup all purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 1/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup pureed cooked quinoa
    1 cup pureed cooked spinach
    1/3 cup oil
    1 tablespoon Mila or ground flax
    1/2 cup yogurt

    Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl. Add all the liquid ingredients together in another bowl. The ground flax can be added to the liquid ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and mix until combined. The batter should be fairly thick, but still be able to pour. If it is too thick then add more rice or soy milk. If it is too thin then add more flour. Heat up your waffle iron and start cooking.

  2. Sara – delicious! Francesca (5 years) ate them up.

    Colette – I cannot wait to try your version too!
