If you know me in real life, you know that brinner (breakfast for dinner) is pretty common around here. I am not sure if breakfast foods just taste better in the evening or I am too lazy to get super fancy with food first thing in the morning. Whatever the reason is, we have brinner at least once a week in my house. Sometimes I like to get creative with it and recently I made some Froot Loops Waffles. I had some Froot Loops left over from a recent road trip to our condo that weren’t getting eaten, so I figured this was a great way to use them up.
Froot Loops Waffles
Here’s what you need:
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup of crushed Froot Loops cereal
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 4 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla (optional)
Here’s what you do:
1. Start by preheating your waffle iron.
2. Next crush up your Froot Loops. I crushed mine in a bowl, but when my husband makes them he does it in a Ziploc bag. Either way is fine.
3. In a large bowl, add in all of your dry ingredients and mix together.
4. In another bowl, whisk your wet ingredients together.
5. Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients in the large bowl.
6. Scoop about a ¼ cup of the waffle mix onto your waffle iron and cook until waffles are done.
7. Top with your favorite syrup, fruit and whipped cream. Enjoy
These Froot Loops Waffles were such a hit, that I have decided to make other variations of cereal waffles in the very near future. Stay tuned for those recipes!
These Froot Loops Waffles were a definite hit in my house. I love that they are easy to make and there were no leftovers. Have you ever added cereal to your waffles?
