I used Leah Stacey's recipe for Light N Krispy Belgian Waffles as my inspiration. Just added a few ingredients to contribute to the "healthy" factor. My 9-year old is a HORRIBLE eater, but he loves eating these waffles and doesn't even know how many healthy ingredients I have managed to sneak in there!
