Summer is so relaxing. I love how there is infinitely more time to do whatever you want, hang out with friends, and unwind from the stressful school year.
Sleepovers are one of my absolute favorite summer activities. Honestly, nothing says “summer vacation” quite like delicious cupcakes, movies, and awesome friends!
After some GIANT cupcakes, an Everest-like quantity of frosting (check out that green cupcake – that was all Rayna!), one bad movie, one hilarious movie (if you haven’t seen Bridesmaids yet, please go do that now), and a little bit of sleeping smushed in there too, it was breakfast time!
And nothing is better for a sleepover breakfast than cinnamon chip waffles.
Are you drooling yet?
Fluffy, light, and with a tiny bit of crunch from the cinnamon – these waffles are just spectacular. Plus, it’s always fun to work the waffle maker!

Cinnamon Chip Waffles
Adapted from Waffles
1 egg, separated
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
3/4 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of canola oil
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of cinnamon chips
Turn on the waffle iron and start it heating.
In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg white until stiff and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; set aside.
Mix the egg yolk, milk, vanilla extract and canola oil together. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the egg whites with a spatula.
Once the iron is hot, pour batter in, leaving space about 1 inch from the edge to avoid overflow. Sprinkle with cinnamon chips, then close and cook the waffle until golden brown. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
I ❤ waffles!
