Waff Waffs

At dinner the other night we asked the kids what they thought we needed to do to prep for the start of school next week. I have been making lists with things like back packs, clothing, morning check lists, school supplies. My big boy said we need peanut butter, honey, bread, and waffles. Of course! I was thinking about the details that would get us through the whole year. He was thinking of what we needed the first week. It was a great reminder to continue to ask for the kids perspective.

My littlest calls waffles: “waff waffs”.  With the waffle request in I started thinking about how to bulk the recipe up. How to give the kids a great breakfast to fuel them for the morning. This recipe made about 12 large waffles that break into four peices. I broke them up and froze them so they can grab 2 of the quarter pieces each morning. If you don’t have a waffle iron this recipe can also make pancakes. Here is what I came up with:



  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (I love King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups milk (+maybe a little more)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 ripe pealed peach
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or melted butter



  1. Mix the dry ingredients togehter in a big bowl.
  2. In a blender put in banana, peach, and milk. Blend. If the total liquid is under 4 cups add a enough milk to make it 4 cups. Add the eggs and oil. Blend.
  3. Add the liquid from the blender to the dry ingredients. Mix well, but not too well. Lumps are OK.
  4. Make the waffles or pancake the way you like to.

I am sure these waffles will see lots of maple syrup. I am hoping to convince them that dipping in yogurt or peanut butter is a good idea too.
