When I was young, I wasn’t much of a morning eater, because well, I wasn’t much of a morning person. But, I did always picture what my ideal breakfast would be one day… not the typical cereal and milk, but yummy, mushy waffles… along with the already-habitual daily coffee, of course. Dreaming of having a meal like that every morning was a great way to start bringing out the breakfast eater (AKA morning person) in me. When I could no longer go without breakfast in the mornings anymore (gotta love adulthood, eh?), I became a regular waffle-breakfast eater… it was most definitely time to experiment with all the kinds of waffles out there. Thankfully, my mom is quite the creative chef, always coming up with super unique recipes for all kinds of foods, so she was on a waffle mission! One of the first waffle ideas she had was peanut butter waffles, because she knew how big of a peanut butter fan I am.
The result: absolutely amazing waffles! I often request that she make a batch for me, even now that I don’t live at home anymore hehe. So, now I share with all of you, one of the greatest ‘mom recipes’ out there!
Ingredients for 12-14 waffles:
- 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
- ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted, and more for brushing waffle
- 6 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda
- In a blender, blend or whisk together in second bowl melted butter and
peanut butter until smooth (about 1 minute). Add buttermilk and eggs
and blend until combined, another minute.
- Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined.
- Brush waffle iron with butter and pour in ½ to ¾ cup batter per waffle.
Close iron and cook until waffles are golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes.
- Serve with bananas, maple syrup, or my personal favorite, nutella 🙂
