Morning Breakfast: Whole-Wheat Waffles with Vanilla and Yogurt

Breakfast can be a challenge for any parent, especially when your kids are heading back to school.  You want them to have a healthy breakfast that will last them until lunch.  Waffles can be a great make ahead option considering they freeze well and you can make a large batch in preparation for the week ahead.  Prior to freezing I break up the waffles to smaller triangles so they are toddler/kid size and ready to be defrosted.  To defrost, place in microwave for a 2-3 minutes, depending on how many you are defrosting.

Here is a great tip to making waffles, mix the ingredients in a blender, it saves time and is less messy.  I’m all about saving time, especially in the morning.  These whole-wheat waffles are made with greek yogurt instead of oil, which I love.  This cuts down on fat and provides a moist waffle.   Add this recipe to your weekly meal prep list and/or weekend breakfast line up!
