Does it get better than strawberries inside and on top of waffles? These Healthy Strawberry Shortcake Waffles are fantastic and easy too, I got everything ready the night before. I combined the dry ingredients and covered them up, the wet ingredients in a separate bowl covered and placed in the fridge and the sauce all the night before, I even set up the waffle maker so when I got up this morning it took only 15 minutes before a perfect Super Mom breakfast was served.
Pre-heat your waffle maker and lightly coat with cooking spray (you will also want to coat before you cook each waffle).
Chop up the strawberries, set 1 cup aside in a medium bowl. To the remaining 2 cups of chopped strawberries add ½ tsp balsamic vinegar and ½ tsp powdered sugar, mix, cover with cling wrap and set aside until time to serve. Take the 1 cup of chopped strawberries you set aside and with the back of a fork smash until it is mush.
To the strawberry mush add the eggs, vanilla extract and almond milk, whisk and set aside.
In a large bowl add the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt, whisk and then you can add the wet ingredients (eggs & milk mixture) to the dry mixture and then spoon onto your waffle maker. Cook until browned, top with strawberry balsamic topping, toss some flour on yourself (like in the old rice crispy commercials) and exclaim “I’ve been slaving on these for hours” I won’t tell anyone it took you just a few minutes ;)
If you like a crispy Healthy Strawberry Shortcake Waffle, place in the toaster for a minute before serving and it will crisp up to perfection. If you are making these during strawberry season try making with fresh strawberries.
