I usually keep breakfast pretty simple around here and Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles help me do that. A quick pop in the toaster oven, and with the addition of fruit, syrup or even almond butter, it makes a great breakfast. The kids are super-happy and we’re on time on busy mornings. That’s what I love about this favorite frozen breakfast food – frozen Waffles from Aunt Jemima can be made so many ways!
One of my favorite breakfast foods to make is Churro Waffles. I usually save it for a weekend breakfast or birthday, but they are so simple, you could make them anytime. These are lighter than a traditional churro (or fritter) because you’re using a waffle and I like to use coconut oil for the pan.
Lightly coated with a cinnamon-sugar mixture, you will find that you can’t keep these on the table!
You can serve them as is or dip them in a favorite sauce or syrup. I like to top mine with fruit or as I did here, toasted pumpkin seed and honey as a nod to the season! For now, I’ll show you how to make these tasty breakfast bites and let you decide how to top or dip!
Start out with your favorite variety of Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles. At ShopRite, I discovered that the waffles are in new resealable packaging and offering 4 more waffles per bag – free! This offers a g reater value (and more churros!) and waffles that stay fresher, longer! I like the using the Buttermilk or Homestyle for this recipe but you could really use any variety.
My twin girls were all too happy to help me make (and eat) these. As you can see, our freezer is usually well stocked with Aunt Jemima – our go to for a great breakfast.
I start by tossing together a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. and toasting my waffles. Be sure to toast lightly since they have to go a round in the pan.
Cut your waffles into 4 triangles and heat the coconut oil in a non-stick pan on medium heat. Note: I use a liquid coconut oil but you could use it in any form you prefer OR you can use a vegetable oil. Pan-fry the waffle triangles, turning several times, until browned and well coated in oil.
Immediately, take from pan and coat in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
I like a light coating, but sometimes they get a heavier coating when little hands are helping!
Once they are all coated, plate and serve. It’s that easy and they’re are SO delicious!
This is a breakfast that your family will beg you for! I’m not gonna lie, they can be a bit messy for younger ones, but then again, most things are! Either way, this face makes it all worth it.
Be sure to make enough, because they go fast and don’t forget to save some on the side for yourself!
