Happy Friday, Bulls!
Summer classes are over, and there are a couple more weeks before fall semester begins. Take this weekend to relax, sleep in, and treat yourself. This waffle recipe is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning (or afternoon) because they are super easy to make, filling, and nutritious.
Make this recipe your own by changing up the toppings. If you’re not a huge maple syrup fan, try them with nut butter or jam. Make the recipe vegan by swapping the eggs for an egg-substitute, like Bob’s Red Mill Vegetarian Egg Replacer.
Want to know what you’re eating? Here are the healthiest ingredients in this recipe?
White Whole Wheat Flour: Don’t let the name mislead you! White whole wheat is still a whole grain, and the nutrients are the same as traditional whole wheat. The taste is much milder and is a great substitute for baked goods. Swap refined flour with whole wheat and add fiber, healthy fats and several b vitamins.
Blueberries: Good things can come in small packages! These tiny superfruits are tasty, colorful, and packed with nutrients from folate to fiber. They also have some of the highest antioxidant and flavonoid content of all fruit and may reduce the risk of LDL cholesterol, coronary heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and breast cancer. However, they do have a high sugar content so enjoy in moderation.
Peaches: This fuzzy fruit is actually a nutrient-dense superfruit. They are full of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and the antioxidant polyphenols. Recent studies show that polyphenols in peaches may help reduce breast cancer risk.
