Healthy Waffles with Strawberry Topping

Super easy Healthy Waffles the whole family will love. Topped with a sweet strawberry topping that is refined sugar-free. These are perfect for brunch. 

The Weekend was made for brunching. It’s about the only time I wake up and want to cook a big delicious meal. This weekend I dusted off the good old waffle maker, it’s one of those kitchen appliances I don’t use often but every time I do I love it! These Healthy Waffles were a great change-up from our usual Sunday’s pancakes. 

So since its mother’s day, why not dust off the good ole waffle maker for some Healthy Waffles. Now I would love for my husband and kids to make brunch but the kitchen is my sacred place, it where all the magic happens, and most of all cooking is a therapy for me. So no, there not making brunch, haha! 

Making these waffles is incredibly easy, you can top them with whatever you like. Personally we are huge fans of the strawberry topping, the kids love dipping their waffles in the sauce it creates.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mamas, mamas to be, and mamas trying to conceive.

Easy French Toast

This Easy French Toast recipe uses lighter ingredients but has the same great flavor! Perfect brunch for the whole family to enjoy. 

Sunday mornings are my favorite to whip up breakfast foods. Sometimes its an elaborate brunch or just some Easy french toast and fruit. Regardless of what it is the kids are crazy for brunch, just like their mama! Now that we are getting hotter days cooking is only enjoyable with the AC on full blast! It’s pretty much turning onto grilling season in southern California. 

Today we went with Easy French Toast, I used country buttermilk bread, which is always delicious with french toast. Any bread will work, use what you have! If you like a thick slice I would go with brioche, personally I like a lighter thinner sliced bread.

Quiche is simple and a total crowd-pleaser also a great way to get in green veggies. You can eat it at any meal and it is very easy to reheat. This quiche is the perfect addition to your breakfast spread.

Yes!! The same way you would bake with a crust just generously spray your dish with cooking spray to avoid sticking. I love crustless quiche however my kids love the crust!
