Whole Wheat Waffles with Apples & Pecans

Super yummy as well as healthy breakfast::Whole Wheat Waffles with Apples & Pecans

This weeks the kids are back to school. Just can’t believe summer is over already. On the first day of school, I usually get up and make the boys breakfast. I’ve decided for tomorrow, I’m going to make the boys waffles, but with a healthy twist. When I’m on one of my healthy eating kicks, I’ll usually just make the normal waffles out of bisquick and I don’t eat one. However, this year I want to try whole wheat.
