Here’s your sneak peak of the amazing Peanut Butter & Maple Syrup concoction I made to really set the waffles over the top. It’s almost like pouring caramel sauce that tastes like peanut butter and maple all over your fabulous breakfast.

Ingredients:

For the Chocolate Batter










For the Peanut Butter Batter









For the Peanut Butter Syrup




Instructions:

Preheat your waffle maker.

1. In two medium bowls, measure out your dry ingredients.

For the chocolate batter whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar.

For the peanut butter batter whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and granulated sugar.

2. Continue with the chocolate batter. Mix in the egg, oil, milk and vanilla. Stir until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and set aside.

Next, add egg, peanut butter, milk and vanilla to the peanut butter batter. Stir until mostly smooth (it's ok if some lumps remain).

3. Lightly coat your waffle maker* with nonstick spray. Pour a little less than 1/4 cup (fill 1/4 cup about 2/3rds full) of chocolate batter onto one side (towards the center) of the waffle cavity and do the same with the peanut butter batter on the opposite side. It works best to pour both batters at the same time. Otherwise, work quickly to pour each batter separately into the waffle maker. Wait for 2-3 minutes. Remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.

4. While the waffles are cooking in the waffle maker, combine the creamy peanut butter and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until fully incorporated and heated through, about 5 minutes. For the caramelized syrup, cook an additional 5 minutes while stirring every minute or so. Keep warm on the stove until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Notes

Donut Waffles are best when eaten immediately, but can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.

*I used a Belgian Waffle Maker, which yields 1 waffle that consists of 4 pieces.
