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.

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪

Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .

Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
