Blueberry Waffles
Jalapeno Bacon Waffles

I love love love waffles! Love them! This recipe is great for classic waffles, or add your favorite mixins! I love blueberries in mine, and my husband loves jalapenos and bacon. So weird, but he loves it.

Ingredients:
2 cups self-rising flour (This is one of those time savers I love because you don’t have to add salt and baking powder. If you don’t have self-rising flour, just add 1 tsp salt and 4 tsp baking powder to the recipe.)
2 T white sugar
1 T honey
2 eggs
1 1/2 c milk (we use coconut milk at our house, but any milk will do)
1/3 c melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c mixins per waffle if you want them and keep separate from the mixing bowl (blueberries, strawberries, jalapenos and bacon, whatever… frozen fruit works best)

Combine all your ingredients and add 1/3 c at a time to your waffle iron that you’ve sprayed with non-stick cooking spray between each waffle. Right after you pour the mixture onto the iron, sprinkle your 1/4 c of mixins on top of the batter and close the lid. Cook according to the instructions on your waffle iron. Makes about 10 waffles.

Blueberry Banana Bread Made With Whole Wheat Flour

My son is a year and a half and I’m always trying to make sure the food he eats is nutrient rich and good for him. He loves banana bread, so I decided to try and make it a little healthier for him and use whole grains, add antioxidant rich blueberries to it, and cut down on the sugar. This bread is perfect to take to a brunch or just to keep around the house for your family to eat. I keep mine covered in cling wrap in the bread pan I baked it in for up to a week in the fridge, and reheat a slice at a time whenever my son is ready to eat it.

Ingredients:
3 bananas
3/4-1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 stick melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Using a hand mixer on low mix together melted butter, egg, bananas, vanilla, honey, and sugar.

2. Once blended add dry ingredients and blend again using hand mixer.

3. Using a spoon or spatula add 3/4-1 cup of blueberries (depending on how berrilicious you like your bread). Be careful not to break open the blueberries or crush then. It should only take you 3-4 stirs to incorporate them into batter.

4. Pour batter into bread pan that has been sprayed with your favorite non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 350F for one hour.
