Vegan Tip:

One thing I have tried to replace eggs is a 1/4 cup ground flaxseed and 1/4 cup water. I used this while making waffles the other morning and you can’t even tell. Basically, you use this for anything you are needing to rise ( basically, for baking purposes)

Any other good tips, please let me know. :)

Breakfast

We made these waffles per the instructions, so you can find that on any box really. I am just  starting to branch out, I will make them from scratch one day. 🙂  I also didn’t use eggs or oil, I used the flax and water mix.

  1. They have become a staple here, the muffins that is! I am going to try adding blueberries to them and see how that works!! 🙂 I am in the process of adding more things here! I will be doing that this weekend. 🙂 I have a clean pizza and sauce that I eat pretty often with pics on my camera that I will be taking off.

Thanks, Traci
