PB&J Banana Buckwheat Waffles

Waffles are so much more than dough-based cakes that are generally eaten for breakfast

The bread of the waffle is soft and fluffy, the edges slightly toasted and crisp. Their square nooks and crannies are vehicles for holding the delicious toppings that will soon be spread

Butter, maple syrup, jam, peanut butter, fruit and berries,
 chocolate, cheese, eggs, meat... there's no shortage of toppings

How the waffles look on the box...

And how the waffles look inside

They look even better than the picture on the box!

Time to pop a waffle in the toaster and grab my scrumptious toppings...

Homemade Berry Jam that my boss made

I believe it's made with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries

She warned the texture was more like a smoothie

It tasted unbelievable! I find some jams to be too astringent and robustly sweet, or 
on the flip side, too bitter/tart. This jam was just the right balance, sweet and smooth

First I spread Kraft Natural Chunky Peanut Butter on top of the toasted waffle

Then a spoonful of the homemade jam went on

Paired with a sliced banana

Sure this tastes just as good on a thick and fresh slice of bread, but only
a waffle can collect pools of peanut butter and jam in its square grooves

My favourite way to enjoy waffles is traditionally made with 
butter and maple syrup, although most waffles are served 
with whipped butter or whipped cream and berry syrup compote

Supposedly the ultimate waffle combo is waffles, 
peanut butter, fried chicken and bacon! Mmmmm

Question: How do you usually dress your waffles?

I am not sure if you can get Van's waffles there, but The blueberry ones are to die for. Prefer them over any other gluten free brand :)

I love putting pb&j on my waffles - totally trumps maple syrup any day. I haven't had waffles in ages. Might just have to buy some next time they are on sale :)

I usually use whipped cream and strawberries or syrup on my waffles.
