waffle recipe

Waffles are a quick and easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  This recipe from FoodNetwork, is great but if you switch out some of the ingredients you can make the recipe easier and add some protein along the way.  Double win!

You’ll need:

– 2 cups all-purpose flour

– 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

– 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

– 3/4 teaspoon salt

– 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (make sure it is actual Greek yogurt and not Greek “style” yogurt.  You can often find real Greek yogurt with almost 20 g of protein per serving)

– 2 large eggs

– 3/4 cup milk

– 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

– 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

– t tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

Mix the dry ingredients (the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt) in a medium bowl.  Whisk the Greek yogurt, eggs, milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl.  Then add the butter and the beaten eggs to the liquid ingredients.  Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until just combined.

Make according to the instructions for your waffle maker.

These are super yummy and not so bad for you either!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

easy food for cancer

These muffins are my absolute favorite.  That’s probably influenced by the fact that I have fond memories of my mother making them when I was growing up.  Still, these are easy to make and delicious.  They are a great snack when you’re feeling crummy and just generally easy food for cancer treatment or survivorship.  The original recipe is for banana chocolate chip bread but I always make them into muffins.  I often cut out some of the sugar and use 3 bananas instead of measuring a single cup…the more bananas in my opinion, the better.  🙂  You could always adapt the recipe by adding nuts or dried cranberries though I’m partial to the chocolate chips myself.
