There’s nothing better than holiday recipes filling my home with the scents of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s funny how you can literally taste Christmas in certain foods. I love the holidays for a million reasons, but one of the biggest ones is that our schedules slow down, giving Brooks and me more leisurely mornings than usual. A day that starts with a pile of pancakes or waffles is pretty much guaranteed to be a good day, right? That’s why I was so excited to partner with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey — we can make Christmas even sweeter together!
I was in search of a holiday-inspired morning meal that wasn’t overly decadent (who has time for a post-breakfast nap?) when I came across this delicious recipe by holistic nutritionist Kara Stout. I really love swapping the sugar for honey in these waffles — not only is it all natural and a healthier way to indulge, but the honey even helps keep the waffles from drying out. This recipe checked all the boxes: organic ingredients, naturally sweetened, simple to make, and insanely delicious. You should definitely try these at home!
