When life hands you a lemon, make some waffles for breakfast. Err, something like that- right? When you wake up and want the day to go as smoothly as posible, I say make some waffles. And then make sure that you make enough so you can store some leftovers in the fridge to eat every day of the week. It cures all of life’s problems. It’s a proven fact. Also known as: treating yo’ self.
I’ve been on a major pancake kick lately, and I have no idea where this is coming from. But today I decided to be a rebel and make something entirely different from pancakes: waffles. So different, right? ;) Different as in the toppings really stick to the doughy little carb heaven more than a pancake.
Make these. They are easy. And good for you with all of the chia seeds, almonds AND sweet potatoes. So many super foods in one waffle makes me so excited, I can hardly stand it. Then topped with nut butter and a glorious drizzle of maple syrup? Yup. And yup.
These babies are nutty, yet sweet. The outside crisps up perfectly while the inside is all ooey and gooey. You know what I mean…the perfect waffle. And then if you want the heavens to open up and start singing, top these babies with homemade cranberry sauce, Justin’s almond butter, cinnamon and pure maple syrup. I can’t even. I just can’t. You must make these.
