Slow summertime mornings are for cooking photogenic meals destined for Instagram. But your weekday breakfasts now that back-to-school season is here? Let’s just say people don’t typically double tap photos of half-eaten granola bars.
No disrespect to your mid-sprint-to-work dining experience—you’ve got to feed yourself and your fam somehow—but you’re missing out on quality treat-yourself time that can happen every morning.
Whether you’re getting yourself back to the grind or rushing to get the kids out of the house (actually on time), you don’t have to settle for a mediocre morning meal. Instead, try this yogurt and berries “toast” recipe that’s way more nourishing than that granola bar and requires literally zero minutes of cooking time. But instead of regular toast—which is just another yawn for your morning—jazz things up by subbing in Van’s Gluten Free Original Waffles.
Made with nutrient-dense, clean ingredients like whole-grain brown rice flour, these gluten- and dairy-free waffles go from freezer to flavorful, crispy morning treat with just a quick spin in the toaster.
Plus, by topping off your waffle-turned-toast with sweet berries, thick Greek yogurt, almond butter, cacao nibs, or even whipped cream, you can customize the nutritious-yet-delicious breakfast for varying tastebuds—while still making it to work or school on time (and maybe even pausing to snap a pic).
Scroll down for instructions on how to whip up this family-favorite, ready-in-minutes weekday waffle recipe.
