Cinnamon Roll French Toast Waffles

Oatmeal raisin cookies are the reason I have trust issues.

This is a saying that I’ve seen floating around the interwebs for a few years now and I completely relate.

I really really dislike raisins.

Growing up, my mom would buy cinnamon raisin bread. Not just plain cinnamon bread. Cinnamon raisin bread. And it made me want to hurl slash hug my plain whole wheat loaf a little bit tighter every morning.

Well, now that I’m an adult and make my own choices {mwahahaha} I buy cinnamon bread. Not to be confused with cinnamon raisin devil bread.

If you can’t tell, raisins clearly made a bad impression on me as a child.

Anyways, I was just fooling around in my kitchen earlier in the week {as one food blogger does} and I decided to make some cinnamon roll french toast waffles!

Why? Because they cook faster and taste so much better in the waffle iron.

*This could have to do with the fact that I brush on ridiculous amounts of melted butter to create a golden, buttery crust.

**Orrr, it could have to do with the fact that I cover these waffles with homemade icing.

***Orrr, it could have to do with the fact that I’m using cinnamon bread {with no raisins-!!!}

Moral of the story, these are good. Really good. And start to finish are ready to eat in 15 minutes; completely gone by 20.

Here’s how to make them:
Cinnabon Bread

Start out with some cinnamon bread…not to be confused with cinnamon raisin bread. GROSS.

French toast egg batter

In a shallow bowl, stir together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.

Have a great day, friends!

    Oh man. I like a few raisins but sometimes there are just way too many raisins in cookies, bread, or Raisin Bran. That’s a horrible misfortune thinking raisins are chocolate chips hahahah. I love this French toast waffle idea!

    I am with you sister! I had second thoughts about marrying my husband when he asked me to put raisins in my oatmeal cookies!
