Good Monday Morning, friends! Are you ready for another installment of what we ate for breakfast over the weekend? I was seriously contemplating delaying this post, but after much consideration and taste-testing, I knew I couldn’t be so cruel. I HAVE to share. So here we have our average Saturday morning waffles. Ha! Just kidding – there’s really nothing average about these. Which is 100% the reason why I’m so in love. Well, the addition of chocolate and peanut butter doesn’t hurt either. And, um, doughnuts. Enough said.

Here’s your sneak peak of the amazing Peanut Butter & Maple Syrup concoction I made to really set the waffles over the top. It’s almost like pouring caramel sauce that tastes like peanut butter and maple all over your fabulous breakfast. Do you remember my maple nut scones from last week? I apparently have developed an interesting relationship with maple syrup and am not at all sorry about it… so, making my own (trashed-up) syrup was inevitable.

And as always, it’s the best thing eva!

That syrup tho!

Before telling you all about the waffles, let me fill you in a bit more about the syrup. Made of two simple ingredients. Creamy peanut butter and maple syrup (or any other syrup you have on hand). You’re basically mixing the two together and heat them up over the stove until they’re combined and perfectly warm. If you do that, you’ll have the most wonderful syrup with hints of peanut butter.

I accidentally heated mine a tad bit too long and it started to caramelize. Making for a thicker consistency and totally transforming the syrup into something beyond my imagination. Still pourable, but so much more aromatic and flavorful. It’s what I call a happy accident. You decide which route to go!

Now onto the waffles themselves. I slightly tweaked my doughnut waffle batter. Not that “regular” doughnut waffles aren’t great, but I may or may not go back to eating normal waffles again. Not when I can have peanut butter cups in the form of waffles shortly after opening my eyes.

Plus, pouring two waffle batters into your waffle iron at once will feel strangely satisfying and earn you the title of waffle master. Seeing the light peanut butter batter slowly combine with the chocolate batter is a beautiful sight to behold. Just wait until you try your own hand at it.

For the Chocolate Batter
  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  6. 1 large egg
  7. 1/2 tablespoon canola oil
  8. 1/2 cup milk
  9. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
For the Peanut Butter Batter
  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1 large egg
  6. 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  7. 1/2 cup milk
  8. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Peanut Butter Syrup
  1. 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  2. 1/2 cup maple syrup
  1. Preheat your waffle maker.
  2. 1. In two medium bowls, measure out your dry ingredients.
  3. For the chocolate batter whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar.
  4. For the peanut butter batter whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and granulated sugar.
  5. 2. Continue with the chocolate batter. Mix in the egg, oil, milk and vanilla. Stir until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and set aside.
  6. Next, add egg, peanut butter, milk and vanilla to the peanut butter batter. Stir until mostly smooth (it's ok if some lumps remain).
  7. 3. Lightly coat your waffle maker* with nonstick spray. Pour a little less than 1/4 cup (fill 1/4 cup about 2/3rds full) of chocolate batter onto one side (towards the center) of the waffle cavity and do the same with the peanut butter batter on the opposite side. It works best to pour both batters at the same time. Otherwise, work quickly to pour each batter separately into the waffle maker. Wait for 2-3 minutes. Remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.
  8. 4. While the waffles are cooking in the waffle maker, combine the creamy peanut butter and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until fully incorporated and heated through, about 5 minutes. For the caramelized syrup, cook an additional 5 minutes while stirring every minute or so. Keep warm on the stove until ready to serve. Enjoy!
  1. Donut Waffles are best when eaten immediately, but can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
  2. *I used a Belgian Waffle Maker, which yields 1 waffle that consists of 4 pieces.
Deliciously Yum!
