Peanut Butter Waffles

By Julie

Yesterday was our weekly Sabbath, and we decided to treat ourselves to a special breakfast - peanut butter waffles.

It was the first time we'd tried this recipe and it was excellent!  (Thank you to my mum for sending it to us).

Here's Steve, our waffle expert, getting everything ready for another batch.

We made the recipe with the amount of peanut butter specified, and the waffles smelled strongly nutty.

Gryffin loves peanut butter, so he was VERY interested in these waffles! Although he did get a couple of small nibbles, he wasn't always successful in his begging. He looks just a little bit miffed about his waffle-less status in the photo below...

Despite the strong aroma, the waffles' peanut butter flavour was actually quite mild. If you would prefer to have a strong peanut butter flavour, increase the ingredient amount accordingly. We also tried adding chocolate chips at the end of the batch, and that made for very decadent waffles - think Reese's Pieces!

Here's the recipe:

First, mix together the dry ingredients:
1 1/4 cup (300 ml) flour
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1/4 tsp (1-2 ml) salt

Then, in a separate bowl, mix together:
1/2 cup (125 ml) peanut butter
1/4 cup (50 ml) honey
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup (300 ml) milk
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla

When everything has been mixed, add chocolate or peanut butter chips to taste (optional).

Gradually mix the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Then spoon the batter onto a hot wafflemaker and wait for your delicious waffles to cook! Serve with nutella (or other chocolate spread) or a mild, sweet syrup (such as corn - real maple syrup's delicate flavour would likely not pair well with the peanut butter).


  1. Ooorh, I'm thinking raspberry syrup would be amazing.

  2. You made me hungry for a sweet breakfast treat!! I think I am putting a waffle iron on my wish list. =)

  3. Thanks for sharing the recipe, they sound wonderful! Strawberry syrup might make it taste like a PBJ sandwich. Yum!
