So the boys really like waffles, although admitted as of late they prefer Eggo to homemade.
And I'm willing to admit that the homemade ones definitely come out of the waffle maker a hair on the dry side.
The other day, I had this mad scientist idea to cross waffles with one of the boys' other favorites - muffins.
Basically, I made waffle batter, but instead of the waffle maker, I just poured it into a muffin pan and maked baked waffle muffins, or "wuffins" as I've dubbed them.
And, surprisingly, they came out pretty good. They tasted like waffles, but were moist and chewy like muffins. Big Brother ate 3 (the other boys wouldn't touch them, but Big Brother assures that his brothers would like them if they'd just tasted them.)
Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
1. Mix the following in a bowl.
-2 cups baking mix
-1 1/3 cups milk
-1 handful of quick oats
-1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
-2 tablespoons oil (or 1-2 tablespoons of flax seed)
2. Pour into a greased muffin pan
3. Bake at 375 for 14 minutes
4. Serve with syrup dipping sauce
Have a wuffiny good week,
