These BLW Cheesy Spinach Egg Waffles are perfect for a healthy baby & toddler breakfast, and are keto friendly for the adults looking to add more healthy fats into their diet.
Let’s be honest- most of us have way too many unnecessary kitchen gadgets in the house, most of which we buy, use once, and then banish to the cupboard forever more. While I have buyers remorse about a lot of things, my waffle iron isn’t one of them.
Why I LOVE Making Healthy Waffles
I’ve been making healthy waffles for me and Baby E as they’re a great on-the-go snack that I can batch prep and bring with us when I’m out and about. I’ve made waffles on my blog before (like these Birthday Cake waffles, orange Poppyseed waffles, Latke waffles, sweet potato waffles and savoury waffles, but this recipe for my BLW Cheesy Spinach Egg Waffles are really my favourite for feeding Baby E.
How to Make BLW Cheesy Spinach Egg Waffles Baby and Toddler Friendly
This recipe for baby led weaning friendly cheesy spinach egg waffles is perfect because it’s packed with iron, good fats and protein- all the things that are often not-so-easy to get when you have a carb-loving toddler like me. I mix together some Omega 3 enriched eggs (I try to sneak omega-3’s in whenever, however, I can), with spinach, cheese, and a little cumin for flavour. Then I top it off with a high protein, high fat avocado sauce that is just as delicious as it sounds.
Are these Cheesy Spinach Egg Waffles Keto and Gluten Free?
Yep! There’s absolutely no grains in them at all, so they’re naturally very low in carbs, and high in those great fats from the avocado, cheese, full fat yogurt and eggs!
Can I add other vegetables, cheese or meat to my Cheesy Spinach Egg Waffles?
You bet! Get creative and switch it up whenever you make a batch. I like to add different veggies in, and add any leftovers we have in the house!
How do I store these BLW egg waffles?
If you make a big batch, cool them completely on a cooling rack and cut into quarters. Then transfer to a freezer bag, pulling out pieces as you need them. These make amazing baby and toddler friendly snacks, even without the tasty avocado sauce.
