Meet my new favorite waffle. I made two batches of these waffles in two days. My freezer is stocked, but not for long! We can’t stop eating these whole-wheat ricotta waffles, sometimes with the strawberries and yogurt, sometimes without. Usually with a little drizzle of maple syrup, but even plain, eaten by hand, these waffles are irresistible.

Know what else? These whole-wheat ricotta waffles are a perfect grab and go breakfast for the kids, or even yourself! This week William and I have been enjoying my spring break by heading out in the mornings to soak up the beautiful weather and run some errands. We often stop along the way for a coffee and a snack, and when broken into quarters these whole-wheat waffles are just right for William’s little hands. I pop them into my snack bag straight from the freezer and by the time we’re ready to stop for a bite to eat, they are defrosted and ready for munching.

I would also send these with the kids to school for breakfast on the go, or morning snack time. I would even use these waffles in place of the bread to make a pb&j or ham and cheese sandwich. Since the waffles are very lightly sweetened, they are great for savory meals too. So many possibilities, so many waffles! I think I’ll be putting the rest of that buttermilk and ricotta in my fridge to good use soon.
