Make breakfast healthier with these homemade waffles instead of grab and go

We don’t make waffles regularly (not weekly) but I like to add it to the breakfast menu on occasion. The kids (girls) enjoy it much and always seem happy when I mention waffles for breakfast. They’re made very much like the pancakes I shared here. I use most of the same ingredients with just a little more of some of the ingredients such as the flour, milk and eggs, and butter. The girls really prefer just some syrup on their waffles so I usually go for the healthier kind of syrup. I like to top mine with all the fruit:)

The photo shows waffles both with chocolate chips and without chocolate chips. Rarely do I add any add-ins in the waffles, mainly because the kids prefer plain and other times, I forget something. Although, this time I thought one of the girls may like to try chocolate chips within her waffles so I made some chocolate chip waffles. I used Enjoying the Life, it’s Vegan and all-natural and healthy. But you can add in blueberries, strawberries, etc, or ground flax-seed for a power breakfast. You might even add ingredients to change the flavor. I once made  ginger-bread flavor waffles in a cook book and it was totally delish! I don’t make waffles often enough to remember to test various kinds along with the fact that the kids like them plain. I mainly make the waffles for them anyway or when my husband is home on the weekends. If I do try something new, I would separate batches to test out like I did here when adding the chocolate chips and with the gingerbread flavor.
