Love me some waffles. How could I not? My very picky kids eat them, and they are only $.14 a serving! Plus these waffles are only 6 Weight Watcher Points Plus points if eaten with sugar free syrup! I've even been known to make waffles for dinner. Why not? :)

Budget tip: Make this even cheaper to make by using milk made from powdered milk Save the "real" milk to drink with the waffles.
Leftover Tip: Throw any leftover waffles in a freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to one month. Reheat them in the toaster. So easy!
