Maple-Pecan Waffles

IMG_0727[3]

Most mornings, we tend to eat a healthy breakfast — smoothies, eggs, oatmeal. But every once in a while, it’s so delightful to indulge in a dessert-style breakfast!

Maybe something like Maple-Pecan Waffles — where the waffles are soft inside with a buttery-crisp exterior and the maple-pecan syrup drizzles from each layer with additional pecans on top for delicious texture.

Sounds good to me!

Waffles

*recipe slightly adapted from the Joy of Cooking Cookbook

*I prefer to use all organic ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together:

1 3/4 cups flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

3 Tablespoons raw sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

In a separate large bowl, whisk together:

3 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 1/3 cups almond or vanilla almond milk

-Gently combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and mix gently. Batter will have a slightly pebbled look.

-Cook in a pre-heated waffle iron according to your waffle maker’s instructions. My Belgian Waffle machine makes approximately six waffles.

Maple-Pecan Syrup

*I prefer to use all organic ingredients

In a small saucepan, combine:

2/3 cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup raw sugar

1/3 cup pecans, chopped

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

2/3 cup warm water

2 Tablespoons cornstarch

-On medium heat, bring mixture to a boil while stirring constantly.

-Once mixture reaches a boil, lower temperature and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mixture will start to thicken slightly.

-Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. The longer the syrup cools, the more it will thicken.

-Drizzle syrup in between waffle layers and over the top. Sprinkle with additional chopped pecans, if desired.

      1. Thanks for asking, Anna. I’ve been busy writing these past weeks and haven’t been on my blog as much as usual. This week, I’m down in Somerset visiting more historical sites. But I find a few moments in the evenings if I can (like now!). I hope you are well, too. 🙂

      3. Good to hear you’re enjoying the spring, Anna. Warm sunshine makes such a difference to our mood. I’m sorry I’m not on my blog much lately but hope to be back in the swing before too long.

  1. Oh, yummy, what a lovely looking breakfast. Naturally I was forced to print out the recipe. Honestly, I was absolutely forced to do it by unknown forces inside, so apparently I’ll be making waffles for my extremely not-so-healthy breakfast very soon. For shame Anna. Tempting me like this. Oh, the shame of it all. The pure shame of it. Hahaha.

  2. You are so naughty Anna. Now I’ll have to make these, and as you said, they are not really “good for you” type food. I guess I’ll have to have some chocolate on the side just to make it better for me — dark chocolate, of course.
