Weekends are for waffles, am I right?
Most mornings, we stick with savory breakfasts like potato and kale hash or bacon, egg and avocado breakfast sandwiches. Something about the weekend makes me just crave waffles, though. Please tell me I am not the only one. I know I’m not, but it’ll help my self-esteem if you tell me that you think about golden, buttery waffles as much as I do, okay? Okay.
I couldn’t just make regular ol’ waffles, though.
I (almost) always try to find a way to make healthy versions of my favorite foods…including waffles. What qualifies this a healthy waffle recipe? I used organic whole wheat flour instead of white flour and, instead of drowning them in syrup, I whipped up a quick, homemade mixed berry chia syrup. I know it sounds fancy, but it’s super-easy and it cuts waaaaaay back on the actual syrup by replacing most of it with fruit. The mixed berries with just a touch of maple syrup are a perfectly sweet sauce to top these yummy waffles.
Come to think of it, there are a lot of healthy waffle toppings.
You could add bananas and walnuts, peanut butter and dark chocolate chips, sautéed apples and pecans…uh oh, I sense another weekend waffle recipe brewing! 😉 What is your favorite waffle/topping combo? Maybe I’ll play around and try to recreate a new healthy waffle recipe!
