Mickey Mouse Waffles Eggless With A Healthier Twist

It’s no surprise we’re pretty big Disney fans over here but what you might not know is that we usually make Mickey Mouse waffles for our girls on Fridays. Definitely a great way to kick off the weekend, right? And although waffles are not necessarily the healthiest, I don’t feel one bit guilty making these as I sneak in a couple ingredients that are on the healthier side.

The “Secret Ingredients”

Organic Ground Flax Seed – which has Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Contains both the soluble and insoluble Fiber types. And “recent studies have suggested that flaxseed may have a protective effect against breast cancerprostate cancer, and colon cancer. ” – WebMD

Organic Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium. “For every 1-ounce serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein.” – Medical News Today And when mixed with warm water, they can replace eggs in most baking recipes. We use chia seeds on the regular as our oldest daughter, Mia, is severely allergic to eggs.

Also, in case you’re wondering, there is a difference with eating whole seeds vs grounded seeds. “Flax seeds offer superior nutritional benefits when consumed after grinding, ground chia offers identical benefits to whole chia seeds.” So basically you get the same exact benefits from eating whole chia seeds or ground chia seeds. Flax seeds on the other hand, are better when grounded.

    Mickey Mouse waffles! How cool! My boys would love this. The recipe is great, too! I didn’t know there was a nutritional difference between whole and ground seeds. Great info! Thanks for sharing, Gladys!

      I know, right? I just found too so wanted to share about it. Ground flax seed is perfect for baking. The kiddos don’t even know it’s in it. 😉

    This waffle looks so cute and I love that you added the secret ingredient with Omega3 flax seed. Kids love that hint of nutty flavor in the flax seed.

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .

I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
