We are so thankful that Mark is a good eater (at least for now) and are always trying to come up with meals for him that incorporate yummy and healthy ingredients. A lot of the time he eats what we eat which makes things super easy... deconstructing shrimp alfredo into noodles, meat and broccoli, shredding chicken and adding a fruit, breaking up a burger patty with pieces of bun and sweet potato wedges.
But sometimes it comes in handy to have a few quick ideas stashed away for when we need them. My ideal meal for him is obviously something he'll actually eat and we won't have to force feed him, something that has good ingredients with little sugar and something that's quick to prepare at a moments notice. And these waffles hit all the must-haves!

1 c oats
3 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
