I made some zucchini waffles a few weeks ago and just absolutely loved them but they were not exactly what I would consider to be healthy, wholesome breakfast. So I decided to go ahead and make up my own version using ingredients that are a tad better for you.
They were delicious!
Although I prefer my waffles without chocolate chips, my kid really wanted them and I relented…. There are just certain things I prefer without chocolate for some reason, coffee is one. I love chocolate and coffee but not chocolate in my coffee – no mochas! Blech. I also don’t really care for chocolate in my pancakes and waffles for some reason. The flavor just never seems right with the maple syrup and really just love good ol’ butter and maple syrup. But the kids wanted the chips so I added them. You can certainly leave them out if you’re like me.
I could have eaten them all day long, actually I pretty much did. Since I had them for breakfast and then I made another batch to photograph and then I ate those too… The kids loved them too and didn’t seem the least bit bothered by the zucchini, which you can hardly tell is there. But my kids love veggies too so I cannot guarantee your kids will love them if they are picky about eating veggies but seriously it was barely detectable so I would think you would be good.
