These gingerbread waffles are fluffy, crispy, and full of flavor! They require one bowl, have just six main ingredients, and are the perfect Christmas morning breakfast. Serve them with maple syrup and fresh cranberries for a delicious treat.
Guys- Christmas is SO close!
Like, 12 days away! What???? Can you tell I’m in a gingerbread mood, because this is my 3rd gingerbread recipe this month. It started with this gingerbread banana bread (if you haven’t made a loaf yet, then what are you doing with your life), and on Tuesday I shared these vegan gingerbread cookies, which I’ve been snacking on all week. And now, we have waffles! Waffles or pancakes? The ultimate and never ending debate.
I love hearing people’s Christmas traditions, so I thought I’d share a few more of mine. One of my favorite traditions is watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, because it never gets old and I’m always down for a good Vacation movie. Have you guys seen the movies? If not, go to your nearest Blockbuster (jk.. RIP) and grab a copy of Vacation. It is hands down one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. It takes a lot for me to find a movie funny, so that’s saying something!
Another tradition of ours is the annoying Christmas morning photos in front of the fire place. I hate them, and most of the time, I look 1/2 asleep, but it wouldn’t be a Clark Christmas without a screaming match from my sister and I about how long the photos are going to take. That would then be followed up with multiple “no Christmas” threats, and then we would smile politely for the camera.
So, like I said, today I made waffles! Not just any waffles though- these are fluffy and crispy gingerbread waffles! There is nothing worse than soggy waffles that are flat, but don’t worry, I’ve solved that problem. These waffles are perfect for Christmas morning, because they serve up to six people, are full of flavor, naturally sweet, and delicious! I’m sorry to all my vegan viewers, but I had to use an egg in this one. I couldn’t figure out how to make them crispy without it, but if you figure out a way, let me know!
If you make these, don’t forget to tweet me a photo @tennishealthfit and tag me on Instagram @tennishealthfitness.
