Healthy whole wheat waffles are easy and tasty! Use almond milk to make this healthy waffles recipe.
While this is primarily a dessert blog, I occasionally like to share some breakfast ideas with you.
And yes, I’m aware that this particular breakfast is pictured slathered in syrup and toasted coconut, but beyond that, these babies are actually healthy. They are healthy in the sense that they are extra-wheaty and dairy-free.
I was a little worried that the gaggle of teens at my house would turn their noses up at these “healthy” waffles. I warned them that they were whole-grain. They literally answered by saying, “We don’t care. We want the waffles.”
Fine with me. Dive in. Just save me one.
At my house, the teens come in the extra-skinny variety. My doctor always tells me they are underweight, and not to restrict their diets at all. Trust me, doc, there are no food restrictions in this house.
Since I am overly fond of dessert foods, I sometimes worry that their diet is a little heavy on the carbs, and light on the nutrients. I figure it can’t hurt them to eat whole grains once in a while. It also gave me an excuse to try the new Silk Almond Coconut blend.
Have you seen this stuff? I asked my good friend about it, since she had to cut dairy out of her diet a while back. Dairy AND gluten. She almost can’t eat anything.
She told me she uses Silk Almond Milk all the time, and that she really likes the Silk Almond Coconut Blend. It doesn’t have as strong a coconut flavor as coconut milk does, and it’s a nice change from using almond milk every day. She bakes with it, cooks with it, even pours it on her cereal.
I think you should try the Silk Almond Coconut Blend for yourself, and to make it a little easier, I am including a coupon! CLICK HERE to get the coupon details.
I’m sure you’ll have trouble keeping your kiddos away from these waffles long enough to get your own helping, but they’re worth the trouble!
