Healthy Breakfast with the Waffle Maker
Info From

Waffles make a healthy breakfast when paired with other nutritious ingredients. For every waffle lover, having a waffle maker is essential because in what another way would you get your waffles every other morning?

However, I’d guess that you were only excited about your waffle maker in the very first few months of getting it and right now, it could be shelved somewhere in the kitchen accumulating dust. If I am right, and I know I am, you only thought you could just use that waffle maker for what it names suggests; make waffles.
Breakfast does not need to be boring especially when you have a waffle maker because I will tell you for free, there are just so many other breakfast recipes that you can make using your waffle maker.

Foods that give us energy and can be served with waffles for breakfast

  1. Bacon
    Who doesn’t love their bacon? It is delicious and what quick and easier way to prepare it than using the waffle maker! Add sliced bananas to give flavour.
  2. Scrambled Eggs
    Eggs are rich in proteins. Pour the mixture of beaten eggs and seasoning in the waffle iron and cook for 2-3 minutes. Sliced avocados go well in this combination.
  3. Fruit Salad
    Fruits have different health benefits, bananas have potassium, and apples have fibre and berries help fight diseases. Although they are good by themselves, they can be eaten with waffles or oatmeal.

  4. Smoothies
    You can get all the health benefits from nuts, fruits, yogurt, and greens by adding everything into the smoothie.
  5. Yogurt
    Enjoy your waffles in yogurt by adding fruits. Yogurt has calcium and proteins, non-fat yogurt is not advisable because of the added sugar.
