Leggo my Organic Whole Grain Waffle

I guess my title doesn't have the same ring as 'leggo my eggo' but I have to say that my tastes have become a bit more refined since the last time I was stuffing down Eggo waffles while listening to Madonna, wearing scrunchie socks and keds- (like early 90s Madonna before I discovered hair product).

My husband gets hooked on a single breakfast and will eat it for months, if not years at a time.  We have successfully made it past the chocolate chip cookie breakfast and have been going strong with waffles.  While the store bought waffles are fine, we decided that a waffle maker would be a great investment and I snatched one up on Friday night.
Since I'm a waffle novice, I used a Hodgson Mill mix that I purchased as a starter before I start tweaking and messing up the recipe.  My only additions were Bourbon vanilla, an egg, canola oil, and some water and a waffle was born.
After a few more ladles and magical lights, I had enough waffles for the week to freeze.  The only time I can truly say I'm stacked:
I cut these guys in half and froze them for my hubby to grab each morning while I'm busy doing my hair or pretending to be awake:
Do you have any good waffle recipes?  What were your favorite breakfasts as a kid?
I obviously loved waffles and also rolled with ginormous bagels.  Mmmmm...carbs!

Yep, that looks good! Why do I never think of making this on the weekend and freezing them for the whole week. WHY? :)

Try using coconut oil and adding shredded coconuts to the batter. YUMMY!

My BF loves waffles more than anything, so whenever I see them, I think of him!! My favorite childhood breakfast was cereal- Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, please! My tastes have changed, but I still love the crunchy goodness :)
