This is something I’ve eaten quite a few times lately after a bout of inspiration one morning when I felt like being fancy.
That being said, whilst it looks fancy and tastes fancy, it takes about 2 minutes to prepare and really isn’t that special.
Great for throwing together quickly in the morning before work or home errands, this recipe (if you can even call it that) is definitely a new favourite!
Half a banana, sliced
Handful of blueberries
Handful of raspberries
1 tsp sunflower seeds
1 tsp pumpkin seeds
Drizzle of agave syrup*
- Place the waffle(s) into a bowl, and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minutes at 850W.
- Take the bowl back out, and throw in the rest of the ingredients.
- At this point you can heat everything up for a further 30 seconds if you want the fruit warm too, or leave as is.
- Drizzle syrup over the dish, quantity depending on how sinful you feel that day.
- Eat and revel in the tasty goodness.
* Unsugared waffles are always the healthier option, but this also works great with the sugared kind as a naughty-but-nice treat.
* I used agave syrup for this recipe as a preferred sweet topping, but you can substitute with honey or maple syrup to your own liking.
Whilst microwaving makes this breakfast ridiculously quick and easy, heating your waffle briefly in a toaster, grill or oven will give you a crunchier end result.
