Book: The book club pick for this month is “Rebel Queen” by Michelle Moran. I don’t know anything about it other than it is fiction and sounds like it is from “Star Wars”. I could be wrong on that one…. my friend doesn’t seem like the Star Wars type. I guess she will comment here if she reads this 🙂
Spinach – the ultimate superfood! Kids like fun colors, right? Instead of green eggs and ham, we have GREEN waffles. No dye! The waffles really are THIS green. I didn’t go crazy with saturation and vibrance like, ahem, some other food bloggers do.
Start your day off right with one of the potently powerful veggies – spinach! We had a lot of fun eating these 🙂 They taste great – I would recommend definitely some added maple syrup, sugar free syrup, strawberries or other fruit and a little real whipped cream. Delicious!
These babies are packed with vitamin K, protein, fiber, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin C and flavanoids!!
I make them entirely in the blender, but you can mix in the mixing bowl as long as you have your oats already ground up. The blender just eliminates dishes for me. 🙂
*This recipe fills my blender. You can reduce it by 1/3 by using 1 egg, 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup yogurt and 1 handful of spinach.
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 packet of stevia (or 1 tsp. sugar)
- 3 handfuls of spinach
- Add the oats to the blender and hit start. Turn up to high speed until all of the oats are ground into what looks like flour. Oats can also be ground up in a food processor.
- Once ground, add the remaining ingredients.
- Blend all of the ingredients until smooth. You may need to push the spinach down with a tamper or other short object (not your hands!)
- Pour about ½ cup of batter (or the amount your waffle iron states) onto your waffle iron and cook per the directions for the iron.
- Remove with plastic tongs and repeat with the remaining batter.
- Eat immediately with syrup, fruit, etc.
- Feel free to freeze remaining waffles and reheat in the toaster or toaster oven.
