Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles
Anything peanut butter and jelly is my favorite! When we have waffles at home (which is often), I always top mine with peanut butter and today, I made a homemade "jelly" to go on the waffles which is really just microwaved frozen berries that are mashed with a fork. The peanut butter and jelly combo is totally delicious and super easy to make. This whole easy breakfast is ready in 5 minutes or less.

The kids wake up excited every single day for breakfast and are starving when they get up. They want breakfast stat! I love that these are nutritious, so tasty and come together so quickly, so my hungry bunch is happy.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles Nutrition

I'm not totally against syrup or anything but adding syrup to your pancakes or waffles adds zero nutritional value and a bunch of sugar. Since we like having pancakes and waffles more than just on occasion, I wanted a healthy topping for the kids that they would be excited about. Loading them up on sugar first thing in the morning is not my idea of a good day! Talk about a sugar crash.

PB and J Waffles
The berry "jelly" is completely healthy with no-added sugar and is made from frozen berries which gives a boost of antioxidants and fiber. The perfect start to my kiddos day, plus they love berries. I just buy a big bag of mixed berries with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Sometimes the mix also comes with strawberries. You could certainly cook them on the stove but to save time and effort, I just microwave them and mash them with a fork which works really well.

Gluten-Free Berry Waffles
Peanut butter adds protein to the meal, fiber and healthy fat. All things that are helpful to start the day with. Don't limit these peanut butter and jelly waffles just to breakfast though. They would be great for a snack or even a little dessert. Since they can be made so quickly, it's not a big deal just making one or two at a time. You can even make the berry jelly ahead of time and store it in the fridge if you prefer. I love having a toasted waffle for a snack!

Gluten-Free Breakfast

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles Recipe
For this recipe, I used Van's® Gluten-Free Waffles from Fresh Thyme. I love Van's products and have been buying their products for years. These gluten-free waffles are toasted in the toaster for just a couple of minutes and breakfast is served in no time. They are perfectly crispy and are made with whole-grain brown rice flour and sweetened with fruit juice. For those on a gluten-free diet, they are awesome because not only do they taste great but they are ready so quickly.
