Breakfast food is definitely on my top 10 list when it comes to favorite meals. No matter what it always sounds good to me. In fact, when I had super bad morning sickness during my pregnancy, breakfast food was one of the things that always sounded good.
(that and for some strange reason goldfish with chocolate milk :)
We have breakfast food for dinner quite often and one of our favorite things to have are whole wheat apple waffles. I have been searching for a good whole wheat waffle recipe forever...it's hard to find one that actually uses 100% whole wheat and is still fluffy and moist.
Well, I believe I have found the perfect whole wheat waffle recipe. I can honestly say that they are my favorite waffles, even over other traditional recipes.
We top our waffles with THIS + a little whip cream = Yum!
Try them for yourself...check out the recipe and tutorial below!
