Upgraded Toaster Waffles


Toaster waffles…but make them gourmet 👩‍🍳 I have been loving a quick toaster waffles on days I’m crunched for time, but I always like to try to add as many fruits and veggies to my breakfasts as I can! 🍓 This waffle is topped with sautéd mixed berries 😍


Ingredients:

I Toaster Waffle
Mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries)
1 tbsp maple syrup

1. Make waffle (any waffle will do)
2. Add chopped strawberries and blackberries to a preheated sauce pan (on low heat)
3. Cook until berries are soft
4. Add maple syrup and stir, cook for 1-2 minutes (cooking too long will make the maple syrup sticky and hard to work with)
5. Top waffle with sautéd berries and enjoy! ☀️

Maple Cinnamon Walnut Butter

MAPLE CINNAMON WALNUT BUTTER?? ❤️ There is something SO EMPOWERING about making your own nut butter! 🌰 For years I have known that nut butter was (supposed to be) just blended nuts with a little bit of salt..THATS IT! 👏🏼 But today was the day I finally made my own and IT WAS DELICIOUS! 😍


Ingredients:

1 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Olive oil (as needed)
(topping) Enjoy Life chocolate chips
(topping) sliced strawberries
(topping) drizzle honey

Recipe:

1. Add all ingredients to blender and BLEND!
2. Blend, blend, blend, blend, it is a process. If you have a cheaper blender (like me) you may need to add SMALL drizzles of olive oil to achieve a creamy consistency
3. Spread on your favorite bread or fruit, or enjoy on its own! 🍁
