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.
- 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.
- 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.
