Want a healthy and hearty breakfast that has the flavor of an oatmeal raisin cookie? The cinnamon smell is enough to get you moving in the morning! You may multiply the recipe and freeze the waffles for pre-done meals or simply. This is a great light dinner after a day at the beach, lake or pool, or simply outdoors during the warm summer months.

Dairy Free: Use a nut or seed milk, such as almond milk and use a non-dairy margarine in place of butter.

Vegan or egg-free: Substitute 1 tablespoon white or apple cider vinegar plus 1 teaspoons baking soda per egg.

Reduce the sugar: Use sugar free maple syrup, sugar substitute and cinnamon or sugar free jam.
