Wonderful Waffles

WONDERFUL WAFFLES

These are not your normal waffles. They are made from true whole grain brown rice, are loaded with protein (11g per serving) and naturally sweetened with banana and iron-rich molasses. They are great to pack for your next hike, bike ride or cross country ski or feed to your kids for a hardy breakfast or after- school snack. They are great on their own, topped with berries or use as a sandwich and fill with almond butter and a little jam.

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons of molasses
  • 2 tablespoons of rice flour
