Eggo Waffles seem like a harmless breakfast to serve to your children right? NOPE! Throw them out of your freezer!
Ingredients: Enriched Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate [Vitamin B1]Riboflavin [Vitamin B2]Folic Acid)Water, Vegetable Oil with TBHQ and Citric Acid for Freshness (Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Soybean Oil, Palm Oil, and/or Palm Kernel Oil)Eggs, Buttermilk, Leavening (Baking Soda, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate)Sugar, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Soy Lecithin, Niacinamide, Reduced Iron, Vitamin A Palmitate, Thiamin Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1)Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6)Vitamin B12.
My suggestion is to make a triple batch of these and keep in your freezer for an easy breakfast. Just pop one in the toaster like you would the chemical-filled Eggo Waffle.
1 cup almond flour OR freshly ground flaxseeds
1 cup JAY ROBB vanilla egg white or whey protein
1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 TBS aluminum free baking powder
1 cup vanilla almond milk
4 TBS butter or coconut oil, melted
1 cup chopped ham (or cooked bacon)
1 cup freshly shredded cheese (I love sharp cheddar, but any kind works:)
Preheat waffle iorn to high. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine the wet ingredients in another bowl. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry. Let sit for 5 minutes. Bake according to your waffle iron directions (I spray my waffle iron with THIS Coconut oil spray). Enjoy! Makes 10 servings.
