Gingerbread Waffles

I have a thing for a family in matching holiday jammies. My siblings and I dress our kids each Christmas (and even 4th of July this year!) in matching ‘Hanna Jams,’ because the patterns are always adorable and they’re so durable, plus I love that it’s organic cotton. Easton is still wearing pairs of jammies that both Asher and his cousin have worn from 7 years ago!

We had some fun making this new gluten-free gingerbread waffle recipe the other day as a family. It was a rainy day so it was a stay-in-your-comfies all day, fire in the fireplace, breakfast for dinner type of day. I think getting your kids involved in the kitchen from an early age is so essential in developing a healthy relationship with food and causes them to take ownership over their choices.

This recipe is a super easy one to get your kids involved in. My oldest, Asher, made them from start to finish with only a little direction (and one mishap of an egg landing on the counter instead of the bowl haha). He loves to help me do anything that requires measuring, cracking eggs, and blending. I also encourage him to sniff the spices as he adds them so he can get an idea of what the dish is going to taste like. He tried his hand at the waffle iron for the first time the other day, and I’d say he did a pretty good job!

Gingerbread Waffles



AUTHOR:

SERVES: 6

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat a waffle iron.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on low for 30 seconds, then high for 30 seconds, until smooth. If needed, stop the blender and push the mixture down the sides with a spatula to ensure a smooth blend.
  3. If the waffle iron requires oil, spread a little coconut oil on both sides.
  4. Pour the batter into the waffle iron so it just covers the bottom portion of the iron, being careful not to overfill.
  5. Cook the waffles until the waffle iron has stopped steaming, about 45 seconds. Each waffle iron may differ in cook times.
  6. Repeat until the batter has been used up.
  7. Serve warm with a pat of grass-fed butter and warm maple syrup.
