I've had variations of these waffles with blueberries, sliced kiwi, or if you like banana, that would be good, too. Instead of walnuts, try pepitas or toasted almonds. I like this because the lowfat ricotta is a better nutritional bargain than butter. Ricotta cheese is high in calcium and has protein. Berries are a superfood because they offer antioxidants, fiber, and very low in calories.
Here's how to make this 5-minute breakfast. Serve this up with a cup of milk.
- 2 multigrain toaster frozen waffles (I prefer Trader Joe's brand)
- 1/4 lowfat ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 tbs toasted walnuts
- 2 tsp honey
- Toast the frozen waffles in the toaster. While the waffles are toasting, slice strawberries.
- When waffles are ready, spread ricotta cheese on the waffle. Sprinkle with fresh strawberries and toasted walnuts. Drizzle with honey. Serve.
