Ah, yes. We all know the old cliche about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. Somehow it just seemed appropriate to start out the new year as we would a new day, with a good breakfast. At first glance based on the “peanut butter” and “chocolate” in the title, this may seem more like a dessert being passed off as breakfast fare. However, I’m happy to say that these are indeed a breakfast you can feel good about!
The original version of these is topped with a traditional (i.e. not healthy) sweetened whipped cream. Instead I topped them with greek yogurt sweetened with honey, sliced bananas and a sprinkling of turbinado sugar. The waffles are whole grain, providing a boost in fiber and protein. Some might take issue with chocolate in a so-called healthy recipe but I say, let’s just use dark chocolate and call it good on the antioxidant front.
I hope everyone’s new year is off to a wonderful start so far. As always, I have lots of ideas in the works but please let me know if there are specific recipes, types of recipes or other posts you would like to see this year. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
