Healthy Whole Wheat Waffles

I’m always hunting for something new to feed my crazy twin boys. Well, this is it, and BOY (no pun intended:)) Was this a hit! Seriously I was so excited as they gobbled these down. They are pretty much as minimalistic as you can get in the ingredients section, with no sugar! So many recipes sweeten their waffles with ½-1 cup of sugar. I was happy to find an awesome recipe without all of the junk. And they devour these, seriously! So, for a sugar free healthy ya go! P.S...these freeze amazing.
