Do you know why breakfast is pretty much my favorite?
Because you basically get to eat dessert and call it a meal.
Ha! That's awesome.
These waffles...full of grainy good texture from the whole wheat, just a hint of sweetness, and because they are made with olive oil, there's a much-desired crisp on the edges.
And then there's the triple berry "sauce." Oh, goodness, yes. It's the easiest thing in the world - all you need is a mix of frozen berries and then you heat them up. That's it. That's all. Easy-peasy. As mentioned many times before, I do not like things to be overly sweet so to me this is such a glorious combination. Warm berries and waffles can never be wrong when they are together.
Of course, if you want to get fancy, you could also throw in a little bit of sugar or some orange peel shavings into the berry sauce. Or both. Or a squeeze of lemon juice and a dabble of sugar.
You get the idea.
Whole Wheat Olive Oil Waffles with Triple Berry "Sauce"
1. Heat waffle iron.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients. Set aside.
3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, milk, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
4. Add the wet ingredients (except berries) to the dry and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix. Let sit for a few minutes.
5. Pour batter into the waffle iron. Do not overfill. Cook waffles until little/no steam is coming out of the sides of the waffle iron. Remove with tongs and place on a wire rack to cool for a few minutes.
6. While the waffles cook, heat the frozen berries in a microwave or on a stovetop until heated through and the berries are nice and juicy.
7. Serve waffles with berry "sauce" and enjoy while warm.
Happy Monday, friends! I hope it's a good one for you.
