Stack Of Breakfast

March 8, 2012

Waffles for breakfast! Following a great night’s sleep. And a fun forecast ahead!

I made Cait’s Plate style stack with yogurt drizzled throughout. I mixed chia, cinnamon and maple syrup in some Oikos and heated it for 30 seconds – too much! It separated just a little and got too runny. Next time: 15 seconds.

But the end result – mixed with banana, Ellwood granola and sunbutter – was awesome!

I’m computer working until lunchtime! BERF has been much more of an undertaking than I ever imagined – but in lovely way : )

Waffle stacks look so pretty! :) I always want to make them for breakfast and then I forget. I love the dollop of sunbutter on the top! Yum!

I think of Cait too when I stack waffles and throw some yogurt in there :) She always makes it so pretty.

I think your writing and all the work you’ve done on BERF is great so far Kath! I can’t imaging that writing 2 blogs every day is east!Your breakfast looks absolutely delish…. it’s making me want round 2! :)

Mmm, craving some yogurt so I can try something like this. We already have the [homemade] frozen waffles ready to go. Time to buy some milk and pull out the yogurt maker (after a couple months hiatus on a dairy-free diet).

Yum, those waffles look delicious, and so pretty assembled like that! I love your yogurt sauce, I’m definitely going to have to try that out.

I was going to have a smoothie, but this may have just changed my mind! Looks fantastic!

Too cute that your plate and cup match. My stuff is such a hodge podge!

Yum– makes me sad that I ate the last frozen waffle in our package yesterday :-)

Where do you buy chia seeds and how caloric are they??? Do they taste and when you eat them are they hard?

hahaa thanks, and GREAT picturessss

Chiaseedsdirect.com is the cheapest, but you can find them at most health food stores now. They are 60 calories per tablespoon and they are like poppyseeds

As much work as BERF is, it’s going to be amazing to look back and read one day.

I brought a small mason jar with greek yogurt and chia seeds to lunch for work yesterday. People were fascinated!
PS-I’m using mason jars more and more and love that Ball sells plastic lids for them (both regular and wide mouth). Make it so easy!

17 Amanda @ Dogs, Chocolate and Fruits & Veggies March 8, 2012 at 9:44 am

Look delicious! This is probably a stupid question, but do you own a waffle maker, or is there another way to make homemade waffles? I would love to make them, but I don’t want to purchase a big cooking toy as my apartment is so tiny!

Reply

18 KathEats March 8, 2012 at 9:47 am

I don’t have one…I don’t think I’d use it and until we have a giantttt kitchen, I don’t really want one. But these are Kashi frozen and are 85% as good

19 Kristen @ Change of Pace March 8, 2012 at 9:47 am

I just love waffles and I love peanut butter and yogurt. The two together are amazing!

I want a Cait stack now, too. fiddle faddle I already ate.

I love Cait’s blog! I haven’t tried the stacked waffles with yogurt yet, but I need to!

I used to think I was a pancake girl, but I LOVE my waffles these days. I love the contrast in textures and the flavor combinations are endless! Have a great day Kath!

We are going to have waffles for breakfast, too!

Love the contrast of yellow and orange!

Wow! Beautiful arrangement…the plate, the tablecloth and the waffles…makes me want to dive right in! I am so loving chia seeds…funny because I am not much of a fan of poppy seeds!

Love your bright plate next to the bright table cloth! Perfect colors for spring! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Both you and Tina at CNC have been making me crave waffles! I’ll have to get some when I get back from spring break!

I never thought to mix the yogurt with other yummy toppings and microwave it. I’ll have to try that soon! Yum! :)

While I honestly prefer my waffles plain, with just a little earth balance and syrup, those look AMAZING!!

Looks like a great breakfast…and aren’t blogs always more of an undertaking than you thought they’d be…but in a good way :) Just a time investment!

32 Cait's Plate March 8, 2012 at 10:57 am

Oh boo that the yogurt got a little runny but at least the end result was still delicious! That’s definitely what counts :) I definitely need to try the chia, cinnamon and maple syrup combo in the yogurt – that sounds delicious!

second to last photo: BOMB, Kath it’s so pretty and colorful! but I am thinking the sandwich from yesterday was the prettiest thing to hit the table in a lil’ while…you always have fun meals!

34 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning March 8, 2012 at 11:47 am

Note to self: make waffle stack! I keep forgetting to pick up some waffles when I’m at the store, and have had them on my mind since you posted that stack last week!

I haven’t made or had waffles in a long time. We put my waffle maker away when we bought our house and I haven’t had the opportunity to get it out and make anything with it since!

I’m going to have to try these waffles, you make them look wonderful! Thanks for all your hard work on KERF and BERF. I’m really loving BERF!!

I imagine BERF is really time consuming, but you will love looking back at the early entries when BERF is here!

What’s your favorite frozen waffle? I haven’t found a healthy brand I like yet.

I haven’t taste-tested them all, but Kashi won for ingredient list and nutritionals.

I had almost the same breakfast and every day this week since it’s so good and keeps me full until lunch! Although i added a little Nutella to mine too!

Waffles always look like a fancy breakfast – even when they’re made in the toaster!

Oh my. In my humble opinion, the word “stacks” should always apply to breakfast!
