Yogurt Waffles

Maya is a waffle addict. She would eat them every morning if possible (sometimes, she does). I do like to take the time to make my kids breakfast every morning, but I'm not about to cook waffles every single day. Instead, I make a large batch on Monday and freeze them for rest of the week. This saves me time and money. Batch cooking in general is such a time saver and by planning your meals so specifically you save a lot of grocery money. Here's a great post on batch cooking from, if you'd like to learn more about it.

If you have a special place in your heart for yummy waffles, try this recipe. This is what my mom made for us when we were kids and it was one of the first recipes I requested from her when I started my own family.

Yogurt Waffles

4 Eggs
1 Cup Yogurt (flavor of your choice, or plain)
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 TBSP Baking Powder

Mix eggs and yogurt. Add both flours. Stir in oil and baking powder, and mix until blended. Cook in a waffle iron until golden brown.
