Today’s topic is Waffle Time! Here are some of our favorite waffle recipes from around the HLB community to add to your breakfast, brunch and brinner menus this year:
Savory Cheddar and Jalapeno Waffles from Rhubarb and Honey // My cheddar and jalapeno waffles are also great for breakfast too. Topped with crunchy bacon and drizzled with maple syrup, they’ll easily be the star of your next Sunday breakfast or brunch.
Flourless Peanut Butter Waffles from Cotter Crunch // These Flourless Peanut Butter Waffles are not only easy to make, but also protein rich! All you need are a few healthy ingredients and they turn out light, fluffy, dairy free, and delicious! Freezable for breakfast meal prep or on simple grab and go! Truly one of our favorite waffle recipes!
Matcha White Chocolate Waffles from Food Pleasure and Health // Matcha White Chocolate Waffles are almost vegan and totally decadent to make your morning special! There is a hint of matcha flavor in every bite and pairs beautifully with white chocolate chips!
Overnight Whole Grain Waffles from Badger Girl Learns to Cook // For the last two weeks, I have been making a batch on these on the weekend and then freezing them for the rest of the week. I cut them in half before I freeze them. I decided that half a waffle is better than a whole waffle and makes it not quite as luxurious as tucking into a plate-sized Belgian waffle.
Grain Free Waffles with Fresh Strawberries and Strawberry Cream from Ricki Heller // These Grain Free Waffles with Fresh Strawberries and Strawberry Cream are vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, egg free, soy-free, yeast-free, and low glycemic. Suitable for Stage 2 and beyond on an anti-candida diet.
Cherry Waffles with Coconut and White Chocolate from Reader Eater // This one is a rather “adult” waffle. (it has boobs…or not) It is filled with boozy cherries. Yes, you can buy these, soaked in moonshine or amaretto, or crystal meth, I’m not entirely sure what all they sell them as, but making them makes them better. IF you want to say, feed these to kids, use jarred maraschino cherries. Or, expect your children to be either very well-behaved, or very naughty for some time after consumption.
Vegan Chocolate Protein Waffles from Peachy Palate // This one is a chocolate protein version using a little Pulsin chocolate pea protein which I’ve kept vegan seen as it works perfectly fine without an egg so why add one when I don’t need to, it just makes it a viable option for more people. The more people that can eat waffles for breakfast the better, the world would be a better place.
6 Ingredient Spiralized Sweet Potato Waffles from Balanced Life Leslie // my new favorite waffle recipe. It’s a 6 ingredient spiralized sweet potato waffle that’s more savory than what you might be used to eating. But that means it’s more versatile than just your average breakfast waffle!
Pumpkin-Spice Homemade Waffles from Champagne Nutrition // By adding canned pumpkin to pumpkin-spice homemade waffles, you’re getting more fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron and calcium. Orange veggies like pumpkin are rich in antioxidants called carotenoids which are linked to healthy eyesight and skin.
White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Buttery Waffles Snack Mix from Averie Cooks // I love snack mixes and can scarf huge handfuls in record speed. This is one of those recipes that I shouldn’t even make because scarfing was in full effect.
Paleo Dark Chocolate Chip Waffles from Gigi Eats Celebrities
Bananas Foster Waffles from Foodie Loves Fitness // While these waffles are not the healthiest recipe I’ve shared, they are so worth the splurge. Trust me!
Almond Waffles with Blackberry and Orange Syrup from Healing and Eating // This was my first time attempting a berry syrup and I’m thrilled with the results. It was a little difficult to thicken the syrup when it was simmering, but as it cooled it got much thicker. I can think of a million different desserts that would taste good with this, and I definitely plan on experimenting with different flavors. Although, I think I hit a home run with this one. Blackberries are a little sour and with all the honey I added, this syrup definitely has a sweet and sour vibe that I love.
Pumpkin Cornbread Waffles from The Balanced Berry // These gluten-free Pumpkin Cornbread waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They make the perfect cozy breakfast!
Raspberry Protein Waffles from Bendiful Blog // Guys these don’t even need a topping they are fabulous alone!
French Toast Waffles from Run Eat Repeat // I love waffles, but don’t usually make them because they’re more work than pancakes. Well, these French Toast Waffles are less work than pancakes!
Chocolate and Vanilla Belgian Waffles from Body Rebooted // One serving is one full waffle, but there’s enough batter for three. So go ahead and make the other two. Once cooled, throw them in a Ziploc bag and store in the freezer. You can reheat with a toaster or microwave.
Gingerbread Waffles from Better Than Never // These babies fit the bill perfectly. Sweet and dense, with real ginger grated into the mix, they hit the spot and left us full and ready to greet the day – or sit in our bathrobes until 2pm, nursing our drinks and watching movies. Either way, it was a great day. Also, if you can restrain yourself and not eat all the waffles in one sitting (which, trust me, is no easy feat) they freeze beautifully and can be heated up during the week for a quick breakfast before you head off to work. Enjoy!
Buckwheat and Oat Waffles with Apples, Figs, and Maple Syrup from Opera Singer in the Kitchen
Lemon Chia Seed Waffles with Lemon Whipped Cream from Everyday Foodie // Whenever we have leftover waffles, we wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in freezer bags. Then when we want a waffle another day, we just toast them up. I had a lemon waffle with the leftover whipped cream a couple of times at the start of this week.
