Here’s a healthy breakfast to serve your rushed students.
Belgian Waffle Sliders
2 cups all-purpose flour
1¾ cups milk
½ cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients, beating just until smooth. (Batter can be made ahead, but make sure you stir before using.) Spray preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Fill little waffles with variety of favorite healthy spreads, such as bananas and peanut butter, chocolate-hazelnut spread and fresh fruit. Top with second waffle and serve.
Note: This batter keeps in the refrigerator for at least week. Or you can make waffles ahead and freeze them. Adding a little cinnamon and nutmeg is delicious.
