Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Waffles

Light and crispy waffles, packed with warm cinnamon flavor and sweet brown sugar!

These start with a classic waffle recipe, then, just add a little cinnamon and swap white sugar for brown, for that warm fall flavor to really take these waffles from plain, to the ultimate holiday breakfast!

They're light and fluffy inside, full of warm spices and crispy on the outside. Top them with honey, maple syrup, or a simple vanilla glaze!
