Homemade Mini Waffle Recipe

Hey y'all! Today's post is a little different than my regular posts but I've been wanting to incorporate more lifestyle content here on the blog, including recipes. I share lots of recipes and home content over on my Instagram but I haven't really shared much of that kind of stuff on the blog in a long time. During the past year, I've barely been able to get one blog post done a week due to my kid's school schedule. They are mostly home for school and when they do go to school, it's never consistent. The one thing that has remained consistent for the past year is my love for cooking and trying out new recipes. I already enjoyed cooking but being home more in the past twelve months has rekindled my love for being in the kitchen. Since we haven't had to rush out the door to get to school on time, I've been able to make my kids a hot breakfast much more frequently. The breakfast they always ask for is mini waffles. We bought one of these little mini waffle makers a long time ago (I think we've had it for at least five years) and it's one of my most used kitchen gadgets.

We use it for more than just waffles. You can cook cinnamon rolls in there and even eggs. I have found so many uses for this little waffle iron over the years. But, of course, we mostly use ours to make waffles and we make waffles at least twice a week. I was just buying pancake or waffle mix from the grocery store and adding whatever it called for. During our time at home, I was determined to make my own batter that would pass the taste test of two picky little girls. After trying about five or six different variations of waffle batter, this one was the ultimate winner. I'm no food blogger but I would say that this is a really great waffle recipe and my kids give it two thumbs up!

My kids love these waffles so much that they eat them without any syrup at all! I usually make a double batch of these to warm up in the toaster another day or I'll save half the batter and store it in the refrigerator. I also make these gluten free as well. They don't turn out quite as fluffy using gluten free flour but they still taste delicious. Let me know if you try out my recipe!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day!
