Kiki’s Mean Lean Easy Blueberry Waffles
To take a break from my morning smoothies, one of my favorite breakfast meals are blueberry waffles. These waffles are tasty, delicious and filling.
I am one that always likes to keep my recipes simple and because of my autoimmune diseases I have to eat gluten free foods. So I am going to let you in on a little secret mix that I use and one that you can’t go wrong with.
It’s called Cherry Brook Kitchen. It’s gluten free, wheat free, egg free, peanut free, dairy free, nut free and I love using this mix. If you do not have any allergies or do not have to eat gluten free, there are other mixes you can use.
However for a good healthy breakfast I do recommend that you use this mix or your favorite gluten free mix and not the unhealthy mixes that have toxic chemicals that can cause more harm then good.
1 Box of my secret mix (CherryBrook Kitchen)
1 egg (only if you can eat eggs – this is optional)
2 Tbsp Coconut oil
2 1/2 cups of Almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Cinnamon (Optional)
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds (Optional)
1 1/4 Cup Blueberries
A Waffle maker
In a bowl add the entire box of my secret waffle mix, egg, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, honey, cinnamon and chia seeds. Mix it well until it’s all combined together. You can add the 1 cup of blueberries to the mix or just place it on top after you pour the batter into the waffle maker. You can heat up the waffle maker while you mix this all up.
When the waffle maker is ready to go, pour some batter into the waffle maker, close the lid, and let it cook. DO NOT over fill the waffle maker as the batter will over flow. Fill it just enough to cover a thin layer over the grill.
Most waffles makers have an indicator light that tells you when it is done. I like to leave my waffles in a little longer to get it nicely toasted. Once done, remove it and place it on a plate.
Drizzle your waffles with honey and top it with blueberries then watch it disappear before your eyes.
Repeat these steps until you use the entire batter.
I usually make the entire box so I can freeze my waffles and have them for the week. However; these waffles do not last long in my house so I have to make 2 boxes.
To freeze the waffles make sure they are completely cooled down, then place them in a freezer ziplock bag or container.
When you pull them out of the freezer, if they’re stuck together just pull them apart, place it in a toaster oven and toast lightly. Again drizzle with honey and top with blueberries and enjoy.
**I like to experiment with making different types of waffles. One of my favorite is adding cinnamon to the mix. What a delicious taste.
**You can add any fruits you like. Just chop them up in small pieces and add it to the batter. Banana, Apricots, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, get creative and add your favorite fruit.
