I am about to share with you my favourite waffle recipe to date.
Like many great recipes, it started with buttermilk. I almost always have buttermilk in the fridge. A love of waffles, biscuits, and quick breads will do that to you.
I groggily rolled over Saturday morning, reached for my new iPhone, and opened one of my favourite apps.
I typed “Buttermilk Waffles” into the Epicurious app and began reading through the recipes that came up.
I ended up basing these waffles off these Belgian Buttermilk Waffles with Glazed Bananas because they were so highly rated with so many reviews.
But you know me, I had to make my own changes!
Here’s what I used:
I skipped the glazed bananas for my own topping.
- 1/2 tbsp almond butter
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 3 tbsp sugar-free syrup
All whisked up and poured over top with blueberries.
The end result was phenomenal. Mind you, these are not my usual lower-calorie waffles. But it seems the best tasting things usually aren’t ;)
The recipe made four waffles, which meant I had three leftover for weekday breakfasts!
All my life I have dreamed of having a four-toast toaster. Now I have one and can put it to use with waffles. I like to divide my waffle up into quarters and pop them in there to reheat from frozen in the mornings.
Now, my weekend waffle was a little on the decadent side. But for my weekday, I kept it simple with sugar-free syrup heated with some blueberries.
Still ridiculously amazing after being frozen then toasted.
Best. Waffles. Ever.
Not to mention, toasting them makes the kitchen smell like the weekend, even on a weekday. It puts me in a great mood to start off the day. A great breakfast will do that to you. Why do you think I love Waffle Wednesday so much?
