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.

      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.

  • #ad Let’s not stress about the kiddos wetting the bed mamá. The truth is, it’s not anyone’s fault so please don’t blame yourself nor the kids. Turns out even kids that are potty trained also need help at night.

We’re loving that @GoodNites has been keeping Lexi dry at night which in turn helps start our mornings off right. Plus, Lexi’s loving that they’re comfy and have princess Ariel and Elena on them. For more information, visit  GoodNites.com #LessWorryMoreChildhood

Don’t mind me, I’m just raising strong willed ladies over here. I had matching outfits for them to wear to the 2019 opening weekend of @kennysstrawberryfarm 🍓but they had other plans. 🤣 Oh well. Love that they each picked out their own outfits and got ready without me asking them to a thousand times. Total win over here. 🥳

And if you’re in Southern CA, and are looking for something fun to do with the littles, go pick some strawberries. This weather is just perfect for it. ❤️🍓😘 #happystpatricksday #raisingladies
