Between giving up sweets for Lent and keeping our dairy to a minimum, it seems like we haven’t been enjoying any special indulgences. If you’re a regular reader, you know that Robert has a dairy sensitivity, which is how I initially got into dairy free milk. Now, it’s something I can’t live without! It’s no longer just a breakfast beverage for me, it’s the perfect afternoon treat too! I’ve been sipping on the new Nutchello nut beverages once the kids go down for their afternoon naps. It’s the perfect pick me up for my much needed “me time”!
I’m so pleased to have found the new Nutchello drinks. They have absolutely no cholesterol or saturated fat, they are free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein and carrageenan. All three flavors are verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program, and they have no artificial colors, flavors or funny business. Total mom approval over here!
You can find them right next to the milk in the grocery store. I found these at my local Walmart.
What’s better than a delicious beverage? Waffles to pair with it. You’ll love how well my banana bread waffles pair with the Silk Nutchello Dark Chocolate and Walnuts flavor. The Nutchello is smooth, satisfying and only 90 calories per serving. Even better, there are only 14 grams of sugar per serving.[bctt tweet=”Get the recipe for delicious banana bread waffles!”]
We made half our batch with pecans. I love the nuttiness factor but like to keep half the batch nut free so my 9 month old can eat them without choking. It’s rare that I find a recipe that the whole family approves of. This is one that will be in the rotation for years to come!
- 2 C. flour
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp. margarine (melted)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 ripe bananas + one for garnish
- 1/2 C. vanilla almond milk
- optional: 1/2 C. chopped nuts
- Mash 2 banans in small bowl. Add sugars, cinnamon, melted margarine, eggs and milk. Mix well.
- In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well.
- Add wet ingredients to dry. Mix well.
- Cook waffles according to your waffle maker. Ours takes 1/4 C. of mix for each waffle.
We don’t just eat waffles for breakfast around here! I think they are the perfect afternoon snack. I cook up a big batch and eat them throughout the week. It’s been fun to replace my afternoon tea with Nutchello as the perfect 3 o’clock pick me up.
