Um, hi. This is breakfast level: ridiculous.
And I’m going to try to sell it to you anyways, because what kind of person would I be if I pretended I wasn’t totally digging a waffle stack layered with Nutella, melty marshmallows, toasted coconut, and just a tiny drizzle of organic pancake syrup? A lying person, that’s what.
And I am not about to lie to you. No, friends: I truthfully proclaim that I am totally into this ultra-decadent, over-the-top, Pinterest-circa-2013-esque type situation. No apologies for the smores waffle love that is towering high and bold in a happy pile on that plate over there.
I have recently re-discovered my love for waffles with the purchase of a very cheap waffle maker a few weekends ago. We got at least 18 waffle makers for our wedding, and then I think I was just so overwhelmed that I returned all of them. 7 years later, I’ve finally come to my senses and we are now making waffles almost every weekend.
And as I’ve started bringing waffles back into my life, I realized that there are, in fact, zero good reasons why a waffle shouldn’t also hold a layer of Nutella and melty marshmallows.
It might seem like overkill to add syrup to this smores waffle escapade, but I found that I wanted just enough of a tiny drizzle to make the whole exterior sort of glow and glimmer. That’s normal, right? Also: I’ve never been one to shy away from overkill when it comes to excessively delicious brunch foods.
If the syrup was overkill, at this point finishing with something else feels even more unnecessary, but you guys, toasted coconut will take you on a magic carpet ride to smores waffle heaven. Do you trust me? It’s a whole new world out there.
It’s toasty and golden and crunchy – and trust me, all that melty-smooshy yum needs some crunch in the mix. It’s a little more earthy, more mellow, and it sort of nails everything to the ground a little bit, making it entirely possible to eat a full blown stack of these breakfast bombs.
Not saying I’ve done it, just saying it COULD be possible. 🤐
This recipe features both the organic honey and organic pancake syrup from Wholesome! And you guys already know I love Wholesome! cause I’ve been working with their products all year and singing their praises like the superfan that I am.
Here’s why Wholesome! is easy to love: as a company, they value fair trade prices for farmers, environmental sustainability, and organic and non-GMO options for consumers. This is a big deal. They are steppin it up for us in the baking aisle.
My all-time favorite thing about them, though? You don’t need to shop at a co-op or any other special store to buy their ethical, quality products because THEY SELL THIS STUFF AT TARGET. ♡ Power shopping made easy.
On the honey front, adding honey to the waffle batter is going to give it the taste of graham crackers — plus, their organic honey is multi-floral and free from any chemical ickyness since the plants surrounding the hives have not been sprayed with pesticides, and the hives themselves have not been treated with antibiotics. It’s organic honey and it’s a beautiful thing.
Alright, guys! It’s Friday and that’s a wrap for this week!
May your coffee mug be full and your pajamas be extra comfy and your cool, fall weekend morning be very smores-y. 👌🏼
