Yogurt Waffles

You know the type of dad who always coaches the little league team? You know the type of mom who shows up to every home AND away game? I know the type intimately. It’s not my baby daddy, it’s not me… it’s my parents and it’s a tough act to follow but it’s still paying off!

This past weekend the Beaver Cleaver house I grew up in was just humming away with my super supportive parents staging a Cooking With My Kid event before I was even out of bed. Check out my mom and my kid whisking up waffles as my dad snapped pictures.

“We cooked with your kid” they exclaimed as I wiped sleep from my eyes. My mom even showed my kid how to get honey from a real honey comb. Now for the recipe…

Yogurt Waffle Recipe

Prep Time: 5 mins  Cooking Time: 5 to 8 mins

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 cups non fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup butter, melted + cooled
1 egg
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons honey

    I'm having a love affair with "waffles" (said in my bad Donkey from Shrek voice) at the moment, we've had them for Christmas, Boxing Day & New Years Day breakfast. Mmmm "waffles" know what I'll be having for breakfast tomorrow.

    These look delicious!! Of course now I have to go buy a waffle iron! I have to say that bacon looks fabulous as well….and I don't usually crave bacon!

    There are a couple of different heart waffle irons on Amazon. Any idea which one your parents have? It looks like they turned out perfectly!

    It is a Villaware waffle iron. Purchases at Williams Sonoma by Rebecca for me as a present several years ago. My waffle iron had died and she saw this one and thought it was very cute! It's fun to use.

    I love waffles, and these look great. With the addition of honey, which my uncle has his own hives so I get it straight out of the hive, and vanilla flavored yogurt, I think these will be a hit at our house.

    Here's a tip. Double or triple the batter recipe. Make as many waffles as your family can eat then with the remaining batter make waffles, but just until they are set and still colorless. Remove from the waffle iron and freeze or put in the refrigerator. When you want to eat them just put them in the toaster until brown. Now you can have homemade waffles whenever you want with out having to pull out the waffle iron.
