Crispy on the outside. Soft and chewy on the inside. These waffles are the perfect fluffy texture and just the right amount of sweet. They're so outstanding, especially hot off the iron, they might not even make it to your plate.
This recipe is very basic, so feel free to jazz up the batter by adding in cinnamon, chopped bananas or dates, blueberries, raisins, chocolate chips, flaxmeal, or almond extract. And the sky's the limit with toppings. I went with fresh fruit, but you can go traditional with maple syrup (keep in mind each tablespoon adds 50 calories); or sprinkle on some chopped nuts, yogurt, fruit compote; or spread on some nut butter.
One waffle is 174 calories, so if you enjoy two waffles with half a cup of strawberries and one-quarter cup of blueberries, it adds up to 393 calories, nine grams of fiber, and 9.4 grams of protein. For a sweet, decadent breakfast, that's not too high at all!
These waffles taste best hot off the iron, but they're also pretty delicious warmed up in the microwave the next day. Or these also freeze well for later.
