Today we have the extreme pleasure of having a guest blogger from over at Spaghetti and Mashed Potatoes joining us to share an amazing Copycat Toaster Waffle Recipe! We are honored to have her and hope everyone can take a minute to go show her some love. Jenn and I would like to thank her for sharing this amazing recipe and allowing us to share it with all of you!

Eating healthy and avoiding chemicals and additives does not have to be complicated or expensive, see how she does it here: http://www.spaghettiandmashedpotatoes.com/
Waffles, pancakes, how can you not love them? The endless possibilities, toppings, flavors. Yum! I have a light fluffy recipe for you today, it’ll remind you about the toaster waffles that so many of us enjoy or have enjoyed as children!
This one though, won’t have any strange ingredients, chemicals, coloring or preservatives. Check those labels people, you are eating more than you think you are when you eat from a box!
I of course used to enjoy mine smothered in fake butter since it was easy to spread right out of the fridge, and butter flavored syrup that didn’t have any real syrup listed as an ingredient. That was before I realized what I was eating.
Fast forward to now, I want to share my knowledge with you! How can we get these same wonderful tastes without the additives?
Try out this recipe!
If using a waffle maker like I have, you will get a fluffier version. If you use a square thinner waffle maker, it will be similar to toaster waffles.
Copycat Toaster Waffle/Pancake Recipe
This will make 4 waffles in a regular circle waffle maker.
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Organic White Flour
3 Tbs Organic Cane Sugar
1 Tsp Salt
4 Tsp Baking Powder
1 ½ Cups Milk
1/3 Cup Butter
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat your waffle maker.
1. Combine your dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. Mix both well on their own. I whipped the liquids until they got frothy on top.
2. Mix the content of both bowls together to form the waffle batter.
3. Make the waffles per your waffle maker’s instructions.
You could use all white flour, although when trying to eat healthy whole wheat is best. I used half and half simply because full whole wheat wouldn’t work well for this recipe. I use King Arthur Flour, they have whole wheat, white, white wheat, and many other options available.
I recommend using organic cane sugar for the best results with the sweetness of these.
