Next to figuring out what the heck to pack for school lunches I think breakfast is the next hardest meal for many mamas- myself included, so I’ve been working hard on coming up with some delicious (and nutritious) easy lunch options for those busy school (or distance learning) mornings.

These waffles are great as-is, and just as delicious frozen and re-heated in the toaster! We use a belgian waffle maker (this is the inexpensive one we use) and divide into quarters to freeze (fully cooled).

For this recipe, I chose to use Einkorn flour (I love Jovial Foods brand) an ancient grain that has been shown to be more friendly for the digestive system than regular wheat flour, and I’ve found the same myself. That being said- it is not gluten-free, so if you have celiac- this one isn’t for you, but it is a great option to try if a lot of gluten isn’t your friend.

You are also welcome to substitute good old white, whole wheat or spelt flour for the Einkorn.

2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat waffle maker. Whisk together dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk wet ingredients. Stir dry into wet and let sit for 1 minute.
