Ruined Waffles… or are they?

Written by Olivia Grist

38,000 feet above, and what do I have on my brain? Waffles. I don’t love to fly. Travel, absolutely. Get away, definitely. Getting there, ehhhhh. So I’m always looking for a good distraction while I’m up here. Since I’ve already stalked most of your social media pages, commented on all the cute baby pictures I could find, and taken several airplane bathroom selfies (yep…happened), there’s nothing left for me to do for the next… 58 minutes, other than to talk about waffles.

A few days ago, I had this happen.

Isn’t it the most frustrating thing when you do everything EXACTLY like normal, and then your waffle fails? So… I’m starving, swearing at the waffle maker, and then that little foodie-lightbulb went off in my brain. STUFFED WAFFLES!!

The next time you have a waffle fail like this, peel off each side. and place on a plate, center up. Spread Justin’s Almond butter across each side and fill with 1/2 cup of fresh fruit of choice, and cover with the other half of the waffle. In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk with 1/2 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix until powder completely combined with the liquid, and microwave for 15 seconds. If this is a thick mixture, add a little more almond milk until it becomes a sauce. Drizzle over the top of your waffle. Or, put it in the middle along with the fruit and almond butter, which is what I opted for.

There’s always an opportunity to turn your mess into something beautiful. Hello, new & improved waffle friend.
