Easter Breakfast ~ Berrylicious Waffles

Happy Easter all! We woke up to some great news this morning - our good friends are about to be parents today - how fun that their baby is going to be an Easter baby.

I had some Buttermilk in the fridge to use up from when I made Rachel's birthday cake. I used it this morning to make these Clear Conscience Waffles from I followed the recipe exactly except I added cinnamon and I substituted Organic Maple Flakes for the sugar. I LOVE Maple Flakes not just for their awesome taste, but, because they have half the calories of sugar. Plus they are a healthy alternative if you are trying to get the "white" out of your diet. I have bought them from igourmet as well as in bulk from


I topped my waffles with:

2 teaspoons of whipped butter
1/2 banana
3 strawberries
About 2 Tbsp blueberries
A small sprinkle of organic unsweetened coconut
1 Tbsp drizzle of Maple Syrup

I LOVE that one serving is the entire 4 waffle square (or circle in my case since I used a Belgian Waffle Maker). These were light/fluffy, but, filling. All in all this meal was 480 cal, 8 WWP and worth every bit. I enjoyed it with some decaf Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee (not pictured)

I am not sure what we are up to today, but, I know I am going to be planning out our meals/shopping, fitting in a great run and cooking up some fun new recipes to share. I think a movie might be on the agenda too since we didn't see it all on Friday night.

Enjoy your Sunday and I hope you all are having awesome weather like we are - it's absolutely beautiful outside and the doors/windows are open already.

  2. I've never heard of maple flakes - I'll keep an eye out! They sound yummy.

  3. Jenny ~ Thanks - Happy Easter to you too.

    Jane ~ I was only able to order them online. They do not sell Maple Flakes in any store that I could find, but, do tell if you do find them somewhere.
