Mother’s Day Breakfast: Skinny Cinnamon Roll Waffles

The title says it all. Are you looking for a really naughtily delicious breakfast to serve your mother this weekend? Well, you’ve come to the right place. These Skinny Cinnamon Roll Waffles are delicious all on their own…or when paired with extra naughty toppings. This recipe is low-calorie and user-friendly, but….you could beef it up a bit with fresh fruit, extra butter, real icing, extra butter….You get the idea. I can’t seem to think of anything else to say about these, that bit about extra butter got me really distracted. In the words of Amy from the movie Little Women, “Isn’t butter divinity?” Now that we have reflected on the superior qualities of butter, onto the recipe!

Cinnamon Waffles: 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk, 2 tbsp. granulated sugar, 1 egg yolk, 1 tbsp. melted butter, 1 egg white, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. sea salt.

Turn on your waffle iron. In a small bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until fully combined. Add the melted butter, egg yolk, and milk. Mix until fully combined. In a separate bowl, beat the egg white to stiff peaks. Fold the whipped egg white into the batter until mostly combined. Cook your waffles according to the settings on your waffle iron (i.e. light, medium, dark). Makes two large, round waffles.

Brown Sugar Glaze: 2 tsp. dark brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp. butter.

Melt the ingredients together for 30 seconds in your microwave. Whisk together until fully combined. Drizzle the glaze over your cooked waffles.

Icing Glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tbsp. fat free evaporated milk.

Whisk these two ingredients together until fully combined. Drizzle the glaze over your cooked waffles.

Delicious food with a simple, rustic beauty….ignore my feet.:)
