If you haven’t noticed yet, my kids are hardcore about their breakfast. When I am tucking them into bed each night they ask what is for breakfast. Depending on the stage of life we are in determines if I make a bigger breakfast frequently or if my go-to is toast and cereal.
Right after I had Grace I went into survival mode for a while and it was toast or cereal daily! I did feel some “mom guilt” for the cereal. It is really silly though. My children were fed each morning. I tried to pick healthy cereal and there was a newborn in the house that was nursing frequently.
I couldn’t make breakfast from scratch without getting up super early or make it while nursing Grace. Having to make breakfast every morning was just an expectation I put on myself because that was how I had grown up and what I had always done.
I decided this year I needed to look for ways to simplify my life, and breakfast ended up being one of the ways I could. It helped me tremdously! Fast forward 6 months and our family of 7 is settling right into our new routine with baby Grace. She is a great sleeper and I am ready to make breakfast some mornings.
So if you are at a stage of life where it is doable to make breakfast from scratch then try these Apple Pie Whole-Wheat Waffles, they are delicious! If making breakfast isn’t something that you can fit in your life at this point, it’s okay! Give yourself grace that you can’t and don’t need to do everything. You can always pin this recipe for later down the road.
This is a fun healthy breakfast my kids are always excited about. I hope your family enjoys these waffles as much as mine does; with the apple pie spice, there is a hint of fall with every bite!

- The night before mix all your dry ingredients together and cover with a cloth. This will save you time in the morning. The faster breakfast is ready in the morning at my house the happier most of my little ones are.
- These are great frozen. Make a double batch to cut down on work for another morning. You can microwave them or put them in the toaster oven to reheat them.
- Save time and mess by prepping bags, mason jars, or Tupperware with the dry ingredients mixed together. It makes mornings feel so much easier if you can grab the dry ingredients already mixed.
