Banana Cinnamon Waffles and Gingerbread Waffles

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 13, 2009


So I’m still here.  Still cooking.  Still feeding the boys.

When Tiffany and Lisa shared these recipes with me, I couldn’t decide which to try.  So I made both.  We sampled each…and the rest went into the overflowing freezer.

I will let you go recipe exploring yourselves.

Lisa’s Banana Cinnamon Waffles

Tiffany’s Gingerbread Waffles with Vanilla Cream Sauce (pictured above)

Org Junkie’s Laura also shared this Gluten Free Dairy Free pancake recipe that her son L-O-V-E-S!

Now you see why I made them both!

We had these with some fresh pineapple and scrambled eggs.

On the baby front…if this little man doesn’t arrive over the weekend, he will arrive on Monday.  We have made the decision to be induced if necessary!  So keep your eyes peeled on Monday.  I’ll likely send out a few Twitter updates on Monday, if you wanna follow along!  So excited to meet the little guy!!!

Next week…a fun and fantastic Thanksgiving series coming up!

Have a super weekend!

Our little man was taking his own sweet time coming out also. We finally broke down on Friday and scheduled an induction to be done Monday. Friday night my water broke. I think babies like teasing mommies. Good luck with your delivery – however it happens!

Erin— I was just thinking about the fact that I thought that little guy should be here! He’s just content to be in such a nice home with such great food. Mmmmmm……waffles…. :) Good luck —hugs and belly rubs for a safe and fast delivery! Can’t wait to hear about his arrival.

Oh, happy day! A deadline!

You and your little one will be in my prayers this weekend.

Since I’ve been a faithful reader of your blog since April, I feel as if you’re a good friend. I’ve found myself thinking about you this week and wondering if #3 is here yet. Thank you for keeping us posted when there are SO many things you need to be doing! Hope everything goes smoothly–my thoughts and prayers are with you! What a blessed little boy to have you as his mom!

Good Luck. I hope the little guy comes on his own. It’s always been easier for me when they did that. If he stays put, i hope you have a smooth induction.


Tiffany November 14, 2009 at 2:10 pm

Thanks for linking to my waffle recipe. I’ll be thinking about you over the weekend and on Monday. Congratulations! Praying everything goes very smoothly.

Oh that vanilla sauce looks so good! Mmmm…

I wanted to ask you a question about this recipe since I know your boys cannot have dairy. (My youngest daughter was just discovered to not have a dairy allergy, but is HIGHLY sensitive to dairy and therefore, it makes her sick to ingest it.) I made this recipe pre-highly sensitive, but was wondering if you made the Banana-Cinnamon Waffles using rice milk instead of the buttermilk with any adjustments?



Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom April 4, 2010 at 9:05 pm


Yes…you can use rice milk with a teaspoon of vinegar to get the buttermilk effect. That’s how I made them and they turned out fine.
