Having a large family, I often seek inexpensive meal ideas and prepare large batches. Next to pancakes, a family favourite in our home is waffles! I love that you can hide extra nutrition and protein in the batter and the kids still devour them. Protein packed waffles are a delicious, filling meal my kids just love – and they’re super easy! Nothing beats homemade!
I like to make a double batch on the weekend and freeze what is left. Throughout the week, we pop them into the toaster and it provides a quick, healthy meal the kids enjoy.
