Everyday I'm Waffling
I've gotta start my day off right! What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means I need something filling and satisfying. I love to BREAK-my-FAST with something loaded with carbs, GOOD carbs; whole wheat waffles, is one sure way to get this done. I feel it is important that I stress the importance of the quality of ingredients here because whole grains, especially wheat, are often times stripped of their nutrients. As a result, we end up eating something that only appears to be healthy. When it comes to flour, I'm a bit of a snob. I will only use King Arthur flour because they stress quality over quantity, AND they treat their employees with dignity. In case you're wondering, they aren't paying me a dime to say any of this, but if they wanted to sponsor me, I wouldn't turn them down *looks around to see if any of their reps are reading this*😉. Okay, back to the lesson at hand, flour, high quality flour, is the key to delicious pastries, so spend the few extra bucks on yourself, you deserve it! I use their unbleached whole wheat flour for this recipe. You can substitute half all purpose and whole wheat if you prefer.
I love this recipe because it's fairly simple. I will say that I only ate half of the waffle pictured above because of it's size. I had a side of fresh fruit, and topped it with coconut whip. You can top your waffle however you'd like. I hope you enjoy it 😇.
