Mickey waffles went tropical this morning. Instead of the usual cherries/blueberries, I diced mango chunks for the usual waffle mix. I also threw in shredded sweetened coconut to add to the exotic-ness. Instead of complicating things by peeling and chopping a whole mango, I just used frozen mango chunks from Trader Joe's. These chunks also make great snacks.. like little popsicles without the corn syrup. I've found that you need to select your bag carefully, though- you want mangoes that are more orange in color as opposed to yellow (the flavor just ain't there in the yellow ones).
Batter above... and half eaten waffle below (I'm sorry mickey for eating your face every weekend... you're just so delicious). I only wished I had coconut syrup to go with today's batter flavor! Note to self for next time I'm at the store... pick up coconut syrup.these veggie burgers. I think veggie patties are great for many things- you can crumble them up on salads, scramble them up with breakfast, or go with the usual and put them between buns with lots of toppings. I like that these burgers use chia seeds, too. I was a little late on the chia seed bandwagon; I only recently got into them. Their nutrition stats are pretty incredible (healthy fats, antioxidants, calcium, fiber, the list goes on...) I'm just sorry that I didn't start using them in recipes sooner!
Put them in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes...
And now I've got these as an option for healthy snacks and/or quick meals for the work week!
