Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Waffles

Weekend breakfasts are big in our house. My toddler, when asked what she wants for breakfast, consistently says pancakes. On rare occasion when I can convince her that waffles should be had, I try to sneak in some extra protein along with some of her favorite fruits to make it a breakfast my kid will devour. Plus it gives me a mom win for the day, which I’ll gladly take when I can get it.

I absolutely love this waffle recipe. The waffles are light, fluffy, and crisp around the edges- a pillowy cloud of absolute perfection. And did I mention they’re gluten free? This recipe uses almond and oat flour, along with yogurt, banana, egg, and ground flax seed, making it a balanced breakfast that might just become your new weekend breakfast ritual.
