Yesterday started out just like any other Wednesday. I woke up, put on my new running shoes and headed out the door for 4 recovery miles. My new shoes felt great (as they should, they’re the same model as my old pair) but I have a major dilemma. I was sent red shoelaces along with the black, what do you guys think would look better?
Anyway like I mentioned, Wednesday was pretty normal until I had an absolutely amazing breakfast idea and created a pumpkin waffle stack!
(P.S. sorry to anyone who thought I actually made pumpkin waffles, I would love to but don’t have a waffle maker or even the kitchen space for one).
I took two TJ’s gluten free waffles and threw them in my toaster oven. While they were toasting, I whipped up some pumpkin pie pudding (less milk so that it would be thick enough without sitting overnight). Once the waffles were done, I spread on waffle with the pumpkin pie pudding, topped it with banana slices, and then placed the other waffle on top. Next, I added some more pumpkin pie pudding, a few more banana slices, and then a hearty spoonful of sunflower butter. Perfection!
I also like to put the entire creation in the microwave for about 30 seconds to warm everything up and melt the nut butter.
I even played around with the filling and found you could sub the maple syrup and maybe even the chia seeds with protein powder (mine has ground chia in it). This makes a thicker pudding that might actually be a better filler for the waffles. I ended up eating it as pudding with some granola and it was really good!
While I’m very much an oatmeal girl, these waffles stacks are super fast and convenient to make in the morning, especially when the filling is made before. I can see myself eating this more frequently during the
pumpkin fall season.
What is your favorite quick breakfast? How do you eat your waffles?
Red or black shoelaces?
