the prettiest, most delish (post run) breakfast waffle ever!

the other day He made the girls waffles for breakfast. i was going out for a run & waited until i got home to eat. this little experiment made THE most delish breakfast & post run meal food that i had to share. plus it's just so-o pretty!

sorry i dont usually use recipes, but i'm going to try ::

He used boxed buttermilk pancake mix from Fresh & Easy  to which i added about 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal then cooked it in the wafflemaker. i cooked mine until it was a little crunchy.
The sauce is the amazing part. (note this is enough for one serving).  i sauteed about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts in about 2 tablespoons of Earthbalance (you can use any type of butter flavored product) & about 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil (optional). then i added about 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla & about 1/2 cup of maple syrup. (you can experiment with the amts to taste). i poured the sauce on top and let it soak thru the waffle for a while. to finish i topped with fresh strawberries & whip (of course). the girls joined me for seconds & RAVED! i had already eaten a banana prior, but it would be fab with it too. a big batch of waffles can be made ahead and frozen to reheat later. try it & let me know what you think!
