I was in the mood for a waffle AND a cinnamon roll but I had no desire to head to the store for cinnamon rolls….or consume a million calories. Luckily, I just bought a waffle maker the other day from Amazon and I had the perfect idea.
Waffles and pancakes take minimal effort to make (until it comes from flipping…. that took me a while to master). I ALWAYS add cinnamon and vanilla to my pancake or waffle mixture so I decided why not add some sugar as well? These waffles are packed with protein and plenty of flavor.
Funny story, when I was younger I would have a few of my friends sleep over and my parent’s owned a mini mouse waffle maker (still the best waffle maker and waffle I’ve ever had). These waffles came out so crispy and you could fill the ear holes with syrup and powdered sugar. The maker only made one at a time and they were so good that everyone always wanted more than one, at least. So as waffles usually only take a few minutes to make, my parents were in the kitchen for almost an hour or longer whipping up the waffles for a bunch of us hungry growing children. Mom & Dad – I truly appreciate those moments and your hard effort! Now, it’s my turn. That being said, I purposely bought the maker that creates the waffles in equal segments because you can share them that way.
If you would like to make these extra healthy, please check out my healthy pancake mixture recipe! They’re packed with just as much flavor and even more protein!
