Did you know that August 24th is National Waffle Day? Our family just loves waffles for breakfast – especially Van’s waffles. With no artificial ingredients, no hydrogenated or GMO oils, and no high fructose corn syrup, Van’s frozen waffles are one convenience food that I happily serve to my family. I just pop them in the oven for a few minutes while I mix up some scrambled eggs. It’s a quick and easy breakfast that’s healthy too.
Our favorite variety of Van’s Waffles is their multi-grain waffles. They are packed with 8 whole grains – whole wheat, oats, barley, brown rice, rye, quinoa, amaranth, and millet. Plus they taste great and our whole family enjoys them.
In honor of National Waffle Day, I thought I would share some of our family’s favorite waffle toppings. I like to prep a bunch of toppings and set them out on the table and let everyone top their Van’s waffles exactly how they want.
My husband and I like to keep it simple – fresh strawberries and blueberries, drizzled with real maple syrup. Yum! Sometimes we mix things up a bit and use fresh peaches. In the winter, I sometimes take frozen fruit, add a bit of honey, and heat it on the stove until it begins to break down a bit. It makes a yummy sauce that is also great for topping Van’s waffles.
My middle daughter loves to top her waffles with peanut butter, bananas, and a drizzle of honey. My son and youngest daughter are partial to topping their waffles with chocolate hazelnut spread and fresh strawberries.
No matter how you top yours, Van’s waffles are a quick and healthy breakfast. So tell me… What are your favorite waffle toppings?
