Start your day with a smile with these waffles that harken back to childhood.

All the best ideas come to you when you are almost definitely not going to follow up on them. After 34 years on this planet, I’m sure of it. In the shower, driving the car, in bed just before you are falling asleep… these are all where fantastic ideas pop up.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles help you start your day with a smile.

Logically, it’s because our brains have stopped being so stimulated and are able to relax enough to just wander to the right places. If you think about it, it’s kind of funny that we often have so many problems brainstorming solutions or thinking of new ideas, and complain about it while poking on our phones and fast-forwarding through commercials on the DVR.

Sometimes you’ve just gotta slow down, man.

The other night as I was going to bed, I said, “Self, tomorrow you are going to wake up bright and early and make peanut butter and jelly waffles.” My other self laughed at me, knowing how much I love the warm, cozy bed and also knowing my general lack of enthusiasm for anything before my coffee.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles are great for eating as you rush out the door, or for packing into your picnic basket for later.

Sometimes, I wrest success from my own subconscious.

Because I make waffles a lot, I knew the basics for making this recipe, and the PB&J variation only needed a few tweaks. I love that I was able to have these waffles in front of me in about 15 minutes, from the moment I started mixing ingredients. Mine feature Peanut Butter & Co.’s Mighty Maple, but you can use any peanut butter you like, or almond butter if that’s your bag.

For the jelly part, I used some homemade jam I had canned earlier in the year. You only need a little bit for each waffle, and be careful, because it can make your waffle iron pretty sticky. However, if you do two layers of waffle batter, it shouldn’t be too much of a cleanup issue.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles - Start your day with a smile with these Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles that harken back to childhood.

You could always add more peanut butter or jelly or both on top of the finished waffles, but we ate them with regular ol’ maple syrup. Without syrup, they’re great for eating as you rush out the door, or for packing into your picnic basket for later.

  1. I think you’re so right: we don’t pause enough without iStuffs in our hands to let our brain wander. This is going to make me sound crazy, but lately, after work, I’ve been sitting outside without my phone and just staring at the sky and trying to clear my brain. I don’t list off the things I accomplished for the day (and subsequently judge myself), or try to plan the next day. I just listen to the freaking birds. I’m trying to quiet things down in my head and focus.

    Love these waffles 😉
