Healthy Waffles Recipe
You need to try my healthy version of plain waffles — they are SO tasty! The secret is the special blend of nutrient-rich flours; these waffles use quinoa flour, rice flour and whole wheat flour.
The best part about these waffles is that you can top them with anything you like — fresh fruit, honey and yoghurt are always a winning combination for breakfast or dessert!
