Because I spend so much time making breakfast on weekends, I decided to share some of those healthy foods and recipes with you as well as, chat a little bit about good reads over the weekend.
I love pancakes and I make them all the time, however my daughter specifically asked for waffles. I didn’t have enough time as I was dashing to body combat and body pump in less than 30-minutes, so waffles in a wafflemaker sounded like a good plan to me. We chit-chatted of course while making waffles.
My 3 year-old loves to cook with me. So when we are in the kitchen, we talk mostly about ingredients and why we use them. For this waffle, I did not make it from scratch. However all of my ingredients were all organic.
1 cup buttermilk oatmeal
1 cup whole grain flour
1 large egg
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup milk
Pour all ingredients into a bowl, stir rigorously for 1 minute.
Pour into waffle maker and allow waffle to become golden brown.
Serve with fruits, scrambled egg and choice of juice.
During the week, I never get to make breakfast for my daughter, so I make it a priority on weekends. She loves it equally and always look forward to them. And I think it also makes her appreciate my cooking more. She says thank you and helps me clean up. I just loved that as a working mother, I can do this with her without feeling rushed.
