Simple (Healthy) Waffle Recipe

Waffles. I love waffles. My kids love waffles. Who doesn't love waffles? Especially homemade waffles. Mmmm...

I'm trying to make healthier food choices not just for myself, but for the kids as well. These waffles are great because they're made with whole wheat flour, minimal sugar, no oil, and they're also dairy free. Bonus, they're so simple to make that even your kids can help!
