What do you eat for breakfast on busy mornings? Today we’re partnering with The Quaker Oats Company to share a delicious waffle recipe that’s filled with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The best part is: you can make the recipe ahead of time to streamline your morning routine. Here’s how…
Our friend Andrea came up with this recipe. This waffles aren’t too sweet like some traditional versions. Instead, it’s made with oats, apples and zucchini so the waffles are heartier and a clever way to sneak in some veggies. You can make the batter the night before and keep it prepped in the fridge to cook the next day. Or, you could freeze a whole batch of waffles, and pop one in the toaster each morning as you get ready. We like topping them with freshly sliced apples and honey or a poached egg.
