Sunday Morning Waffles

These gluten-free waffles are a perfect way to begin Sunday morning together...

I'm about to share with you how to get a week's worth of breakfasts out of one morning together, having fun in the kitchen? Pass this post along as this makes for a delicious Mother's Day treat AND breakfasts for the rest of the week are taken care of! You can thank me later...

Two of my favorite activities as a family are cooking together and gathering around a meal. Make a date to get together and make these as a family on any Sunday morning or as a special gluten-free treat for Mother's Day (perfect for us Celiac Moms).

As a mother, student, business owner and health coach, I am always looking for efficient ways for us to eat healthy, home-cooked meals. Here I'll share a few of my favorite tips to help you and yours Eat Inspired Today and everyday!

{Eat Inspired Today Tip}

Double or triple the batch (depending on the size of your family!) and you'll have plenty of waffles to enjoy all week long - along with memories of a weekend morning breakfast together. Simply refrigerate the waffles and reheat in the toaster or toaster oven.

Make sure to divide the yolks and egg whites - this one simple step helps to give the waffles a crunchy outer curt and a softer center. It also helps to keep the batter from stocking in the waffle iron.

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to easily scoop and pour batter into the waffle iron.

P.S. Share this recipe with Dads and kids - it's a perfect Mother's Day treat topped with fresh berries, sprinkled with chopped nuts and syrup or simply served with a bit of (in our case, non-dairy) butter.

From our kitchen to yours, enjoy,
