  3. In another bowl, combine eggs, almond milk and oil.
  4. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients just until moistened.
  5. Lightly spray hot waffle iron with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Fill with one cup of corn bread mix.

  8. Tear apart each waffle into 4 sections and serve warm.

Helpful hints

  • Traditional corn bread requires preheating the oven and cooking for 20 minutes. Waffle iron cornbread is easy to make in minutes with a unique waffle pattern you can use for a drizzle of honey or butter. You may never make cornbread the old way again!
  • Freeze extra waffles to reheat later.
