    Delish and very moist.

  2. Jenna says:

    This is my go-to waffle recipe! Love it! Can’t believe it tastes so good without sugar. Perfect for my little kids, too, so they get delicious waffles without too much sugar. While dairy-free, I’ve substituted the milk for oat milk and the butter for vegetable oil and they taste delicious.
