my own recipe


Waking up to the rain with no particular plans for the day is totally dreamy. So I decided to make waffles. I looked up an average recipe and added my own twist to it to create my very own Costi Recipe! I basically just substituted what I had on hand because I usually have such weird stuff.  Its healthy and scrumptous!
I'm calling it...

Hearty Healthy Waffles

1 cup whole wheat flour              2 eggs
1 cup finely ground oatmeal        1 1/4 Kefir
4 tsp baking powder                    1/4 cup unsweet applesauce
1 tbsp brown sugar                      2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt                                    1/4 cup chopped walnuts

combine first five ingredients and mix second five. combine and mix all together. pour 1/2 cups separately in waffle maker till golden brown. enjoy!

serve with pure maple syrup and fresh fruit. I only use pure maple syrup and the difference is astounding! It tastes so real and very sweet, a little goes a long way. I didn't have any butter and it was still delicious and incredibly moist.

oh and i used my good china! so fun...try it, for no special reason at all.
