Breakfast has always been one of my favorite meals (quite possibly because it’s the only meal where you can get away with eating something that borders on dessert). But there’s something about waffles in particular that make breakfast seem like an extra treat. I always feel eating in a quaint little cafe when I have waffles, even if I’m right at the kitchen table.

I went searching on Pinterest and found these 7 delicious and fun waffle recipes. Which one is your favorite?


If you’re like me and have trouble getting your finished waffle out of the waffle maker without either burning yourself or sending all or part of the waffle flying across the kitchen counter, you might want to check out these Mini Waffle Tongs. They have a soft, beveled edge that makes it easy to get at the waffles.

Another thing that’s cool about them is the locking mechanism at the top that can keep it in a “closed” position, so it won’t take up half your kitchen drawer to store them.

Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potato Waffles

Healthy Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet potatoes for breakfast? It sounded weird to me at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. These waffles are made using only sweet potatoes, eggs, apples, cinnamon, and oil, so they’re a healthy alternative to your traditional waffle.

Not only that, but I totally with Jerry Seinfeld about cinnamon:

Coconut Cream Waffles with Pineapple Syrup

Breakfast or Brunch Recipe for Coconut Cream Waffles with Pineapple Syrup

Wow, WOW, does this look. I am absolutely crazy about pineapples; I even love them on pizza, which my husband thinks is very weird.

These waffles are made with two cups of coconut milk, and the syrup contains both pineapple chunks and coconut flakes. It sounds ah-mazing.

Black Forest Waffles

Black Forest Waffles with Cherries and Whipped Cream

Here’s a fun waffle recipe that looks more suited for dessert than for breakfast … although I’m quite sure that many people (including me) wouldn’t turn it down if someone offered it to them tomorrow morning.

They are topped with powdered sugar, chocolate syrup, cherry pie filling, and whipped cream. So if you love the combination of chocolate and cherries, this recipe is for you!

The smell and taste of gingerbread often making people think of the Christmas holiday season. I could picture enjoying these waffles with a mug of hot chocolate on a snowy December day, with a nearby fire in the fireplace.




Peanut Butter Banana Waffles

My daughter Rebecca likes peanut butter and banana sandwiches with honey. These waffles are basically the same concept, except they’re both fluffier and crisper.
