Raising Kids on Real Food–Yogurt Waffles

April 27th, 2010 in cooking, Raising Kids on Read Food

Does Saturday morning mean good breakfast at your house?  It does at ours (most of the time)!  Usually Tyler makes something yummy, which makes the morning even better for me. What could be better than warm waffles on a weekend morning?

We tried a yogurt waffle recipe this past weekend that was a hit with everyone in the house.

These waffles had no oil and had lots of whole grains.  They were just perfect with a bit of honey over the top.  They were better than soggy waffles from melted butter and syrup with no nutritional value in it.

A healthy breakfast is a very important part of the day for our kiddos! Their growing bodies and developing brains need a regular intake of food. When kids skip breakfast, they can end up going for as long as eighteen hours without food, and this period of semistarvation can create a lot of physical, intellectual and behavioral problems for them.

So give these yogurt waffles a go!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of whole grains mix

1/2 cup of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup of GROUND Flax Seeds

1 tsp of salt

1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

1 1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/3 cup of brown sugar

4 T. melted butter (cooled a bit after melting)

3 large eggs

1 3/4 cups plain yogurt, click here for homemade recipe.

Directions:

1. Whisk together all dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl whisk together butter, eggs and yogurt until smooth. Mix two mixtures together.

2. Cook on the waffle iron and serve with honey or maple syrup.

Enjoy!
