Waking up to a stack of fresh waffles is the best way to start the day
…and even if you have to get up and make them yourself, it’s still pretty good!
S and I got a waffle maker as a christmas present, but it has been living in his cupboard until recently. Now I’ve adopted it, and waffles have become my new obsession!
My first attempt at waffle-making failed epically, but trial and error is a good teacher! I’m still working on my own recipes, but in the meantime, I’ve collected some inspiration for us both!
I’ve scoured the internet for healthy and delicious waffle recipes, and my search returned 21 I’d love to try (+ a bonus one for you!).
Now, if you don’t have a waffle iron, don’t panic! Most waffle recipes are excellent as pancakes too.
And here’s a little tip: If you love waffles as much as me, it’s worth making an extra big batch for the freezer (or refrigerator if you eat them fast). Just pop the cold waffle in the toaster and it’ll be warm and crisp in no time (alternatively use your microwave or oven).
Now, get ready for some amazing action shots of drizzling syrup (and try not to make your mouthwater drizzle the same way 🤤)
