Whole Wheat Waffles with Cherry Compote & Whipped Mascarpone

April 10, 2014

Waffles Waffles Waffles!!!!!

So I had way toooo much caffeine this morning. And ate a few (4) waffles.

With whipped mascarpone and greek yogurt and cinnamon.

Oh and Maple Cherry compote.

You know when you start eating the corner of one, then continue on eating the whole contour, then you just finish it and you deny the fact that you just ate an extra waffle?

Yeah… I did that twice.

I’m going to go ahead and lie down until my food coma has passed.

P.S – These waffles were out of this world and super healthy.

Go make some and be merry (with your food coma or food baby, whatever you feel comfortable calling it)

Today, i’m calling it a food coma.

Ciao my lovelies!
