I’m sure you’re seeing a boat load of recipes flooding your social media feeds for all of these delicious recipes for the upcoming holiday, so what’s one more! These easy, and do I mean EASY, waffle and fruit skewers are the perfect guilt-free, fun, summer breakfast or snack to whip up. I can’t get enough of this waffle and pancake mix by Birchbenders, too. Not only do I love that they make a paleo option but it tastes amazing without all of the added junk that you find in a lot of mixes out there. 

This recipe is easily customizable as well. You can sub other kinds of fruit, whatever you have on hand and also toss in add-ins to your waffle mix like dairy-free chocolate chips (what’s a little more chocolate), coconut, nuts or even more fruit!

And this dip is heaven. Using powdered peanut butter, like the Peanut Butter & Co. Flax & Chia one I use, is great way to cut back on the fat while still giving you tons of flavor. Adding in the cocoa powder, well, that’s a no brainer.

Hope you all have a safe and fun Fourth of July! Don’t forget to tag your recipe #thehappyhungryyogi so I can see all of the wonderful things you make!

Waffle + Fruit Skewers with Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip

Serves: 2

Prep time: 5 minutes 

Cook time: about 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS

DIP

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your waffle iron on a medium setting.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, prepare the batter by combining the mix and water. Stir until smooth (because this is a paleo mix it will be a bit thicker of a consistency).
  3. Spoon about 2 tablespoons worth of the batter for each waffle onto the iron spacing them apart (my iron fit 4 mini waffles, one per each section). This will ensure the batter doesn’t run together as you’re making bite-sized pieces. Close the lid and cook as directed for your particular iron. When done transfer to a cooling rack and repeat this process until the batter is used up.
  4. When the the waffles are ready assemble the skewers as desired using the fruit and waffles.
  5. In a small bowl combine the dip ingredients and mix until well combined and no clumps remain. Serve along side skewers and enjoy!

Note: This is a guilt-free breakfast or dessert, SERIOUSLY! Each serving has less than 300 calories, 8g fat, 15g sugar (that’s also mostly from the fruit) and 9g protein!
