Peanut Butter Waffles

Peanut butter waffles with sliced bananas and maple syrup. Recipe from Vegan Brunch, which has to be my favorite vegan cookbook at this point.

I got a waffle maker (a $20 one from Target) because of this cookbook's many waffle recipes. All of the ones we've tried have been great. I used to be a bit intimidated by homemade waffle-craft, but that seems silly now. Making waffles is less time-consuming and more dummy-proof that pancakes and they re-heat better too. If you make one batch of waffles over the weekend, you can just pop the leftovers in your toaster during the rest of the week. These peanut butter waffles are easy to make using 1/2 whole wheat flour and go great with some applesauce and cinnamon if you want a healthier breakfast.

Vegan waffles rule! I actully took a liking to gluten-free vegan waffles, because they turn out a little lighter and crispier, a failing in some vegan waffle recipes. Also, many whole-grain gluten-free flours, like brown rice flour, have a lighter texture than whole grain flours containg gluten, so you can still use whole grains.
