Our favorite breakfast...

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day... so many yummy things to eat. I have to be very careful and only splurge once in a blue moon. One of our very favorite things to have for breakfast is waffles. We like the thick Belgian kind. We have gone through several waffle irons in our many years, but the one we have now is the best ever. It is a double waffle iron, and gets the entire batch done in no time flat.

After beating the eggs, add rest of ingredients and mix until smooth, then fold in chia seeds.
Pour onto hot waffle iron and sprinkle with pecans.

We eat one or two, and then put the rest in the refrigerator to eat later. I use a basic waffle recipe and jazz it up a bit, making it much tastier and a bit healthier. My favorite way to eat waffles is with fresh or frozen berries, syrup, and a little Coolwhip or whipped cream... yum, yum!

Whole Wheat Waffles

2 large eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 3/4 cups milk (I usually use skim)
1-2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar or honey
2 cups whole wheat flour (white wheat is the best for baking)
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. chia seeds 
pecans (finely chopped)

Heat waffle iron. Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Blend in wet ingredients, then add dry ingredients and mix just until smooth. Fold in chia seeds. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cook until done, and serve with favorite toppings.
