Chocolate Milk Waffles Using Pancake Mix

For the most part it was a low-key weekend.  Saturday I met a mom from school for lunch and some shopping.  My big boy was sick for a few days so took him to urgent care Saturday and found out he had a virus; fever broke later that evening.

Yesterday I made delish waffles for the kid's breakfast.   I usually make pancakes and waffles from scratch, but when we went to the beach house I picked up Arrowhead Mills Organic Pancake Mix instead of buying all the random ingridients needed and schlepping it along on vacation.

I wanted to use up the bag of mix but the kids wanted waffles.  Did some research and found that if you add 2 tablespoons oil to the pancake mix (in addition to regular ingriedients) it can turn into waffle batter.  It worked!

Worth noting I have been using avocado oil for baking and it is amazing!  Makes the outside crispy and the inside taste all buttery.   I also used chocolate milk instead of regular milk when making the batter.  I am not a big carb fan in the morning but gosh these waffles were pretty close to perfection.
