With the heat we’ve been experiencing here in northern California,

we have been eating a lot of salad for dinner.

Caesar with shrimp

with salmon

with chicken

{you get the picture}


waffles with strawberry syrup


I love salad

I really could it eat it every night during the summer.


the  kids…

well that is a different  story altogether.


It’s still hot,

and I’m still craving salad,

but tonight I wanted to give the kiddos something they could not complain about

breakfast for dinner

{a big hit in my house ALL the time}

even better than that,

I made brownie batter waffles

with strawberry syrup

{if there’s fruit it’s healthy right}

watch out…

I’m thinking that


is mine this year.


Brownie Batter Waffles with Strawberry Syrup


  • For the waffles:
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil {melted}
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • For the syrup
  • 2 cups of berries quartered
  • 1/2 cup of sugar


  • combine the flour, cocoa, almond meal, salt, baking powder
  • whisk together the eggs and the sugar
  • mix in the oil and vanilla
  • gradually stir in the dry ingredients
  • alternating with the milk
  • lightly oil the waffle iron
  • use 1/4 cup of batter for each waffle
  • For the Syrup:
  • Bring the berries and the sugar to a boil
  • lower the heat
  • cook stirring occasionally
  • until the syrup begins to thicken
  • {about 8 minutes}


The waffles are not over the top sweet,

that is until you add the syrup,

so I cut the sweetness with some creme fraiche,

but mascarpone  or whipped cream would be just as nice:)
