Waffle Breakfast Bowl
They're amazing! They don't just look delicious, but also bring back beautiful memories. And they taste wonderfully fluffy and sweet.
When I was a child, I was always completely mesmerised watching my Mom stir the waffle batter and make beautifully thick and round waffles from it in the pan. Then she cut out a heart shape and topped it with strawberries and icing sugar. It was magical.
These days, I quite like to eat waffles as part of a big Sunday breakfast, particularly when I have friends over. The best part: they can be sweet or savoury, just like pancakes. And they look their best in a rustic breakfast bowl - those are not just for smoothies and porridge!
I helped myself to some excellent Alnatura products. Their wide product range of many types of nuts, coconut oil, maple syrup, apple sauce, sea-buckthorn fruit sauce, nut butters, matcha tea and much more covers pretty much everything my superfood and breakfast-loving heart desires.
I hope you have a hearty, delicious Sunday brunch and I hope it features my waffle breakfast bowl - fluffy waffles, baked in coconut oil, that taste divine with a raspberry and rhubarb jam, some cashew nut butter, various chopped nuts sprinkled on top, some banana chips or fresh fruit or some of it or all of the above! Try it!
