Today my husband is working from home, so I don't feel like serving him the traditional weekday breakfast like a peanut butter jelly sandwich or cereal. I wanted to whip up something nice, wholesome but quick so I thought of making this healthy waffle for him. Lucky him right???I know !!! LOL
Jokes apart, lets focus on the subject here. Traditionally, waffles are butter-laden and high-carbs from white flour unlike this wholewheat version here. Another thing I like about this waffle is the warm cinnamon scent that fills the house while this is cooking ..woohoo..what a nice start to a lovely family day together!
Start off your day like royalty with a sumptuous and nutritious breakfast and you wil be at the top of your game the whole day!
If you don't have a waffle maker, don't worry - You can make pancakes out of this batter.
