Like many families, we are experimenting with alternative grains and eating more whole and natural foods. Starting with something like a waffle is an easy way to introduce a new way of eating with an already familiar product.
My kids already love waffles, and they look the same, so when I served them these waffles, they had no idea that they were eating a grain and gluten free version.
Feel free to change up the fruit used. Chopped fresh strawberries or raspberries would be delicious, as well as beautiful. You can also change the flavor from orange to lemon. Use whatever you have available, and make your breakfast a little more elegant.
