Warm and wholesome waffles made with nutrient packed spinach!
#hiddenveggies for the win! 🌱🏆
These fluffy waffles can be devoured the minute you make them or frozen and reheated for those hectic mornings you want a fast and healthy breakfast for your baby, toddler or kid! I would have to strongly recommend making a double batch so you can eat some right away while having enough leftover to freeze!
My girls are hit or miss with spinach. At some meals they will eat it raw by the handful (table manners are not prevalent in my house apparently😂), while other times they won’t touch spinach with a ten-foot pole.
But whenever I blend spinach up and make a baked good or smoothie with it, they don’t even bat-an-eye at it, they just dive right in.
These green waffles are so good that an entire batched was gobbled up by my family within minutes (hence, the recommendation for making a double batch above 😉).
