Cornflake Crusted French Toast Waffles | The Blonde Buckeye

Remember these perfect whole wheat waffles? How could you not. Here is round 2, as promised. I turned these delicious waffles into french toast! I love french toast and I love waffles, so why not have the best of both worlds. So I had waffles one day, and french toast the next. Perfect breakfast(s) if you ask me.

Light & Crispy Whole Wheat Waffles

Light & Crispy Whole Wheat Waffles | The Blonde Buckeye

I love waffles. You know this. But I also love whole wheat waffles… except when they’re dense bricks. Whole wheat baked goods sometimes have a problem staying the light and fluffy consistency you know. I often use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat to avoid this. Not these waffles. They are THEE best whole wheat waffles I have ver made (and I’ve made a lot!). One of the tricks is using whole wheat pastry flour, since it’s a finer consistency. These are the waffles you can turn someone who “doesn’t like whole wheat” into a believer. (Maybe a picky kid perhaps?)

Fruit Loop Waffles with Milk Glaze

Fruit Loop Waffles with Milk Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

This isn’t your traditional cereal & milk. Oh no, it’s much much better. Cereal IN the waffles, top with a sweet, milk glaze. I mean, this is probably the best cereal & milk ever. I used Fruit Loops, and I got that ‘funfetti’ look. Pulverized Fruit Loops = cereal sprinkles. I think you could use Fruity Pebbles too, but Fruit Loops come in the individual containers, which is so perfect. These are a little bit sweet, a little bit fruity, and a lot delicious!Continue Reading

I’m on a slight delay this morning – I mean afternoon. I want go back to bed and start over tomorrow… I mean, I’m awake, but I don’t feel totally awake. Over the weekend we celebrated out first wedding anniversary. So I have an excuse, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Maybe if I started every Monday with waffles, it would help, at least a little bit. Especially if it were these Lemon Chia Waffles with Blueberry Compote. Fresh lemon, to get you all jazzed up – sweet and tart blueberry sauce – with the nutritional burst from chia seeds.

Bacon Waffles with Peanut Butter-Honey Glaze

Bacon Waffles with Peanut Butter-Honey Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

When I’m in the mood for brunch (which is always), I always have an internal struggle between savory options like eggs/bacon/omelette, or sweets like waffles/french toast/pancakes.  It’s a constant dilemma. I think I may have come up with the perfect solution by adding the savory into my sweet. And it was awesome. Then again, when you see bacon + peanut butter, you can usually assume the awesome part.Continue Reading

Peanut Butter Banana Waffles with PB Glaze

Peanut Butter-Banana Waffles with Peanut Butter Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

As you might know, I enjoy a good food holiday.  Any excuse to makes S’mores & things like that are always welcome in my home.  So when I realized that March 1st is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, I had take full advantage & celebrate with Peanut Butter Banana Waffles (duh).  I didn’t want to take any chances with experimentation today, so I did the sensible thing & went with something I know; waffles.  Because waffles & I always get along, especially when peanut butter’s involved.
