Bringing the Magic Home…
Mickey Waffles full of Hidden Veggies. That kids love.
What you’ll need:
Mickey Waffle Maker, pancake mix, vegetable purée (baby food), water, oil. Essentially, this is a waffle loaded with vegetable purée.
You can steam and purée your own vegetables, or you can use baby food.
We used baby food. It’s easy and there are a ton of different combinations you can try.
I recognize that to make Mickey waffles, you need a Mickey waffle maker. Using our Mickey waffle maker is one way of Bringing the Magic Home. Here are two great choices…
Recipe: 1 cup whole wheat pancake mix *2 4 oz jars of Baby Food with fruits or vegetables of your choice (equals a total of 1 cup of baby food) 1/2 cup water 1 tsp vegetable oil waffle maker grease of choice (I like Coconut Oil Pam) Heat up the waffle maker. Mix together pancake mix, purees, water and oil. Whisk together until a smooth consistency. Grease waffle maker. Pour mix into waffle maker and close lid. Cook for recommended time period. I have found three minutes to be a good time, but follow the instructions on your waffle maker.
*We used Beechnut baby food – one jar of carrot, corn, and pumpkin and one jar of apple, squash, and zucchini.
They turned out great, but you could do many, many different combinations. These were a huge hit with a 10 month old (ripped into tiny pieces) and my 3 year-old, to whom we gave a dip. Depending on the flavors you choose, the dip could be sweet like syrup or savory like ranch or ketchup. Yes, I just used savory to describe toddler condiments…
She asked for thirds, which never happens.
Here are a few baby food flavors and combinations that lend themselves well to this recipe. I made the product images Amazon links if you are interested in trying this out. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Have a Magical Day!
