Hazelnut Waffles and Caramelized Bananas

are a great way to celebrate the last few  mornings before 



We are trying to squeeze every last bit out of our summer vacation. With back-to-school just days away, lazing around the dining table will soon be a distant memory.

We love breakfast; it’s the one meal that my kids happily eat without complaints {that is unless it’s cereal which happens occasionally on busy morning when they refuse to get out of bed.

Most kids love cereal, at least I did as a kid, not my bunch. Charlie especially. If it hasn’t been baked or cooked it’s not breakfast in his book. He’s an eggs and bacon LOVER and a pancake inhaler.

Stella is all about the crepes. Who can blame her. I’ve never met a crepe I didn’t love. Of course she’s happy with anything that she can cover in nutella.

To celebrate our last few quiet mornings and a new school year about to begin I made waffles, but not just any ordinary waffles. These beauties have a mild nutty flavor from the International Delight Hazelnut Creamer I used to replace the milk. Hazelnut is one of my favorite flavors for my coffee, and something about it makes me think of fall; I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for fall flavors. Nothing against berry and cherry but bring on the apple spice and pumpkin.


Then, I topped the waffles with caramelized bananas. FYI …I think all waffles should be topped with caramelized bananas.



Nutty, sweet, with a hint of cinnamon.

These waffles are delicious, and definitely deserve an extra cup of coffee and a LONG linger on the deck.

I’m sad to see the summer end, but I’m also really excited for all that is to come with this new school year. Either way I’ve got breakfast covered in style.
