School starts in twelve short days. Ugh. If you're like me, you're constantly on the look out for breakfast ideas that will fill your Smalls up until lunch time and give them the nutritious start you know they need. Here is one idea:
The cast of characters: Pamela's Gluten Free Baking and Pancake Mix, Cinnamon, Chia Seed, Vanilla, Egg, Coconut Milk, veg oil
There is no recipe here; just throw some mix in the bowl, crack an egg, dash of oil, dash of cinnamon, dash of vanilla, scoop of chia seed and then enough coconut milk to make it pancake batter consistency. Use the coconut milk instead of adding water-it's super high in calcium and protein.
Here's where it gets fun. Our waffle maker died last month, but I picked this guy up a couple days ago. Twenty bucks worth of fun. It makes waffle sticks. Totally worth a trip to Meijer, even if your Meijer is all jacked up like ours is.
Don't make the same mistake I made and put too much batter in. It's not a joy to clean.
I know it's made with non-stick, but I woke up yesterday with pink eye, Peter has used up all our duct tape and the bamboo skewers I was going to use for our shish kabobs making a sword and Lucy is wearing eight pairs of underwear and doing what I can only describe as a pole dance to Miley Cyrus' Party in the USA, so non-stick is the least of my problems.
You gotta die of something. Might as well be non-stick.
It comes out in a sheet like this. You get to eat framework. It's the rule.
The kids get the sticks. Just a little puddle of syrup or fruit puree to dip these babies in and your kids will head off to school with bellies full of protein and goodness. You better believe I'm going to pull out a surprise can of Redi-Whip on the first morning. We'll be making waffles like a boss.
If you're lucky, it'll give your kids enough energy to head off into the woods for a Narnia battle, wielding homemade weapons and some false bravado.
My favorite part is the JESUS sticker on her shirt.
This is me being real. Looking for more good breakfast ideas. Or lunch for that matter. Sock it to me.
