Ok, so, my youngest son is going to turn into bread. That’s all he wants to eat. All. The. Time. Oh and pasta. And now that the cold weather is upon us, he’s the one getting sick most often. I decided things were going to change.
So today we had Christmas waffles. When it’s not Christmas season they can be Ninja Turtle Waffles or Zombie Waffles or whatever we decide to call them. I had to find ways to get creative and get some good nutrients into my kids! And even though waffles aren’t bread, they’re dang close and they are a food my youngest will eat for breakfast.
I found one recipe for kale waffles on Pinterest but they use a mix and it has milk in it and we can’t eat or drink milk. So I played with a recipe I use and made these awesome, vegan, green waffles. The kids loved just the smell as they were cooking which made them eager to eat these. And the flavor did not disappoint. I used just a little kale to see how it would turn out but next time I may add more for a deeper green color.
1 large kale leaf
4 cups water
4 Tbsp coconut oil
4 C flour of your choice
4 tsp baking powder
Cinnamon to taste (optional but sooo yummy!)
Blend the kale, banana, water, and oil in a high speed blender.
Combine dry ingredients. If you have a mixer you can use it. Mix the dry ingredients in the mixer first and then add the wet ingredients to the dry. Or just mix in a bowl with a spoon as you add the wet ingredients to the dry.
Spoon into waffle maker. Eat waffles. Easy peasy!
The things I like about this recipe are that you can half the recipe or double it or quadruple it and it works out great! And you don’t need any kind of fancy mixer to mix this. I’ve made them with a mixer but I’ve also made them with just my wooden spoon and they turn out great!
They went really well with my PB chocolate smoothies. Recipe to follow 🙂
