Zucchini Parmesan Waffles are a delicious way to celebrate National Waffle Day today!
I always love finding ways to sneak in extra veggies, and these waffles do just that! I do not have kids yet, but if do you this if such a fun recipe to try out with them. My mom always says I am going to be such a great mom since I am learning how to sneak in all these veggies now..so let’s hope I live up to that! haha:) Speaking of kids, August is Kids Eat Right month, so that’s one more reason to make these Zucchini waffles!
In honor of National Waffle Day, I whipped these bad boys up and they did not disappoint. Sometimes people choose to back away from waffles because of their high carbohydrate, fat and sugar content – but these waffles provide you with more vitamins and nutrients compared to your ordinary waffle.
What are some fun ways you sneak veggies into your diet?!
Hope you enjoy! PS: this recipe is inspired from Yahoo Food and I made a few tweaks of my own!
