Spinach and Apple Oatmeal Waffles
Here is an excellent option for a healthy breakfast! These waffles are made from a mix of spinach, oats, and Greek yogurt. There’s no flour in the mix, and they can be topped with sweet and salty ingredients. Oatmeal itself can help you lose weight because it will help you feel full longer than other foods. The fiber content of oatmeal can also aid the digestive system.
