We have a new favorite breakfast at our house. Finding a quick breakfast for in the mornings can be tricky. Justin has been begging for me to make waffles, seeing all of the waffle makers in the stores for Christmas time. I found a cute flippable waffle maker at Walmart and was surprised to see at the register it was only $10! I wasn’t looking forward to making waffles, because I have never had any luck making waffles. My waffles had always stuck in the past and I wasn’t thinking the almond flour dough would help any. We made our first waffles this past Sunday. They were BEAUTIFUL! I was as excited as Justin! He put half of them in the refrigerator and said they were just as good reheated. He wants me to make some and freeze so he can pull them out for breakfasts during the school week.
I made a double batch today and tried some waffles with frozen blueberries tossed on top of the dough in the waffle maker. He liked these, too. I have included a picture of the waffle maker I purchased from Walmart. I spray it with my olive oil from my mister I cook with regularly every time before I put in the dough. This waffle maker has a ready light so you know when it’s heated up. The directions on the waffle maker says it takes 3 minutes per waffle, but it’s only been taking 2-2:15 minutes and they are ready and come right out! I put approximately 1/8 cup in each waffle section. I froze my first batch today, hoping they work great for school mornings! Enjoy!
