It’s no secret around here. I love breakfast. I like getting up early in the morning to enjoy my breakfast before the morning chaos begins. Pancakes are a weekend staple in our household until I got this waffle maker for Mother’s day. These waffles were made with fresh antioxidant rich blueberries. I love taking advantage of the summer fruit this time of the year.
These waffles have become a regular on our breakfast table. Miss E wanted to add blueberries to the waffles, which added enough sweetness that I didn’t add any sugar to the mixture. I used wholewheat flour and wheat germ for some fiber. I like to top my waffles with seasonal fruit, plain greek yogurt, and drizzle a bit of maple syrup. Like pancakes, you can experiment with different flours like oat, I found these vanilla bean cherry waffles from naturally ella. Breakfast anyone?
