Gluten Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Waffles

This Gluten Free Peanut Butter Jelly & Waffles recipe will make you forget you’re eating gluten free!  This recipe will give you fluffy waffles full of yummy peanut butter and jelly flavors!

This is seriously the best gluten free waffle recipe I have ever made. Even my non-gluten free son wants these every day now! They are fluffy and have tons of peanut butter flavor! And you can't help but love the classic peanut butter and jelly flavor!

When I told my 9-year-old son, Jaxon, that  I  needed to create an original recipe using peanut butter and jelly, he said, “You can leave this one up to me!”  He’s probably the only person on the planet who loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches more than I do!

Unfortunately, his first idea was not going to work out like he thought it would.  After a little trial and error and some tweaking here and there, he finally decided on the winning recipe: Peanut Butter & Jelly Waffles!  I tweaked his idea a little more and we decided on making Gluten Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Waffles.

Shopping for Ingredients

We headed over to Target to get everything we would need.  Target is my favorite store for home decor, office supplies, and clothing.  Being able to buy groceries there as well is a huge bonus!  It’s also the only store I can drag Jaxon to without hearing any complaining!  They really do have something for everyone and I am totally that person who goes in needing a few things and coming out with ten times as much!

Jif and Smuckers at Target

We ended up buying a huge jar of Jaxon’s favorite, Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, and Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread.  Right now you can save 5% on Jif and Smucker’s products when you use the Target Cartwheel app!

Wanting to keep things healthier for all of my exciting, life-changing New Year’s resolutions, I decided to make this recipe gluten-free and lower in carbs than tradition waffle recipes by using a combination of tapioca flour and coconut flour.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles

The results were far beyond my expectations and Jaxon has requested that I make a batch every week so he can have one before school every morning!  I am totally on board with giving him a healthy breakfast he loves before he hops on the bus!  I hope you love them just as much!

Lately, I have had brunch on the brain.  I have been thinking to make a whole spread filled with delicious brunch recipes one weekend for my boys, but haven’t quite figured out exactly what foods are brunch appropriate!

The only thing that came to mind (so far) is Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.  Why?  Because I went to brunch once and that’s what I ordered.  And they were amazing!  So amazing that I haven’t forgotten about them in all the years that have passed since that one meal!

Simple Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

So I went scouring the internet recently for a Lemon Ricotta Pancakes recipe I could use to make for breakfast one morning and quickly got fed up.  Nothing I found was quite what I was looking for. Most recipes seemed too complicated for a meal that I tend to make when I’m still half-asleep.  I need an easy pancakes recipe!

So that’s what I came up with!  A simple Lemon Ricotta Pancakes recipe!

Simple Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

My recipe for these easy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes involves just a few simple steps and the ability to flip pancakes – that’s the hard part!  Stack them up, sprinkle on some powder sugar and finish them off with a few raspberries to fancy them up if you want, and viola!  Brunch is served!

With all this talk of brunch, let’s be real here…these pancakes are the perfect breakfast recipe as well!  Or, try them the next time you’re having breakfast for dinner!

I think you and your family or friends will love them!  My 9-year-old told me they are his second favorite pancakes…after a popular frozen brand!  Normally I’d be a little offended but he’s a 9-year-old who loves Lemon Ricotta Pancakes!  I can’t complain about that!

Simple Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Hopefully, you’ll agree that this is not only the easiest Lemon Ricotta Pancakes recipe but also the most delicious!!

These are definitely going on to my brunch menu someday!  If you have any brunch suggestions I would love to hear them! Leave a comment and let me know what your absolute favorite brunch foods are – I really need some good ideas!

Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Who says only grown-ups can have fancy, delicious smoothie bowls?!?  Your little one will love this Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl that’s just for them!

Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowls

Once your baby became a crawler and started eating more solid foods, you may have seen or bought Gerber’s Lil’ Bits 3rd Foods.  They are prepackaged purees with small pieces of fruits and/or vegetables in them designed to help with learning to chew and mash foods.  They can be served as is, but why not have a little fun sometimes and offer your child something new?  By combining the Lil’ Bits with a few other smooth ingredients you can easily make all kinds of new recipes for your little one to enjoy!

Ben and his Gerber Lil' Bits!

Our son, Benjamin, is 15 months old.  He had some delays with eating, but we’ve got him back on track now!  He’s come such a long way, but we still use purees and soft solids most of the time. The meals I make using the Lil’ Bits has made it so Ben can join in now with his own special meals while we all have breakfast or dinner together.

Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Since Benjamin loves any kind of tropical fruit I’ve ever given him, I decided to make him a Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl to provide him with a little extra protein in his breakfast.  The base of this smoothie bowl is just a simple blend of Greek yogurt and frozen banana!  Once that’s blended and smooth, pour it into a bowl and top with the Gerber Island Fruit Blend with Lil’ Bits. How easy is that?!?  Benjamin loved it and it’s a meal I can feel good about serving him to start his day!

Gerber Lil' Bits

Gerber has quite a variety of Lil’ Bits 3rd Foods.  The Sweet Potato Apple Carrot & Cinnamon Lil’ Bits is Benjamin’s favorite vegetable blend (try adding a little quinoa to this one for a complete meal!) and he also really loves the Banana Apple Strawberry with Lil’ Bits.

Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowls

You can pick up Gerber’s Lil’ Bits and the other ingredients needed to create this Toddler Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl just about anywhere you shop!  Or, grab your little one’s favorite flavors and create something special just for them!   If you have any fun tips or recipes for Gerber Lil’ Bits please feel free to share them and be sure to check out Gerber’s website to learn even more about crawler nutrition and all of the yummy products Gerber has available!
