Mojo and Moxie Christmas: BEST Butter Tarts

We are in the final week before Christmas and we are bringing out our BEST BUTER TARTS recipe!

I am so excited to have the whole family home and just relax. I don’t know about you, but I find the Christmas season more chill with older kids.

These delicious waffles would even have Martha asking for seconds. But wait these are Martha’s waffles..I found this recipe in the Martha Stewart magazine that I used to subscribe to many years ago.

Yes those were the days that we got new recipes from magazines and not from Pinterest.

And who wouldn’t love gingerbread waffles for breakfast?? Well that is what I thought. So I decided to give this recipe a try and really my family loves when I try new recipes ( insert eye roll here)…Usually because I am trying to pass on a healthier version of a high sugar treat. But these waffles are already pretty healthy (low sugar) and you can even make them with a gluten free option.

Once I made them, the family was hooked.
