Riberry and Plum Waffles
There is no time that can’t be turned into waffle time! Making waffles at home yourself is a great way to have a healthy breakfast that fills you up and let’s you break up your routine from your regular weekday go-tos. These waffles make use of seasonal fresh plums, are made with whole grain ingredients and have a slight tartness thanks to the addition of Riberry.
Whether you have them for breakfast, or make up a batch to pop in the toaster and have for snack, these waffles are an easy to make option that might just become your new favourite. Don’t have a waffle maker? Turn them into pancakes instead!
