It’s back to school time! Can you believe how quickly the summer went by? One of the common struggles about packing a lunch is how to make it healthy. This is where waffles can come to the rescue! They freeze very well, are easy to make in bulk and when made right have tons of nutrition. Put them in an insulated lunch box with something cold and send the kids out the door. We’ve already shared our Clean Eating Margarita Pizza Pockets and Quick and Easy All in One Breakfast. Now we have three more delicious additions!

The basic method is the same for each recipe as is the dough. This way you can make up several different kinds at the same time!

Whole wheat is perfect for a healthy lunch. It’s very high in fiber which means it helps keep blood sugar levels stable longer. Whole wheat can also help with weight control, reduce chronic inflammation, lower risk of type 2 diabetes, support mental health, brain function and digestive health. (source)

Add this to health promoting ingredients like basil, black beans, peanut butter, rice, etc, and you have a wonderfully healthy lunch or snack.

There are no real measurements to these waffles. It really depends on the size of your waffle iron and how full you want them. So just have fun experimenting! There is no right or wrong way to make these. Let’s get cooking!

Directions

Combine whole wheat flour, butter, sourdough starter and buttermilk in a glass bowl. Let sit in a warmish place for 6-12 hours. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
