Banana and Strawberry Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Waffles for breakfast is not a groundbreaking idea, I know. But sometimes I like to play up my toast-for-breakfast routine and opt for a waffle sandwich.

If you have a waffle maker, great! Use your favorite waffle recipe to make two. If you don’t have a waffle maker, despair not! I don’t either.

Enter: frozen waffles to the rescue!

No fancy waffles needed. These eggos are cheaper than some of the “healthier” options out there. Don’t misunderstand me, I would love to buy those waffles made out of different grains and flaxseeds, but they are SO much more $ expensive! Unless you have a food allergy or dietary restrictions, these will do just fine. Eating nutritious food doesn’t have to empty your wallet.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 3-4 strawberries, sliced
  • 2 waffles

*Nutrition Tip* → buy natural peanut butter,

this one has only two ingredients: peanuts and 1% salt.

Directions:

    Cook or defrost waffles. Top each waffle on one side with peanut butter, chia seeds, and cinnamon.
    Add fruit to the top of one of the waffles.
    Top the waffle with fruit with the other waffle without fruit, peanut butter side facing down towards the fruit. Enjoy!

Change it up:

  • Use a different nut or seed butter instead of peanut butter
  • Try different fruit combinations. Favorites of mine are raspberries and banana, raspberries and blackberries, mango and kiwi.
  • Add an extra topping: how about adding coconut flakes, chocolate chips, hemp seeds, etc.
