Orange Waffles and All-Natural, Homemade, Creamy Orange Syrup
Every single day I have the same thought, "What can I incorporate more fruits and vegetables into for my children!" Well, the other night, when I decided to make waffles for dinner, I thought, "I'm not really interested in adding berries to our waffles again, but what about oranges?" So, it was, and these did not disappoint.
This was our Waffle recipe:
- 2 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat flour
- 1 Cup white flour
- 5 tsps baking powder
- 2 tsps salt
- 4 TBLS Sugar
- 4 eggs
- 3 Cup orange juice
- 1/2 C Canola Oil
- 2 tsps vanilla
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together, will be lumpy. Pour onto hot, greased waffle iron. Top with orange sauce and sliced oranges. Makes a lot, so freeze leftovers to put in toaster on busy mornings.
The syrup was the part I was most excited about. You may not want to call it syrup, because it wasn't sticky and gooey like syrup, but you could call it a creamy orange sauce!
- 2 oranges
- 1 teaspoon date sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
Mix in a high powered blender and pour over waffles!
Hooray for adding oranges to your life! With all that vitamin C and thirst quenching goodness, you'll wish you lived in Florida!
