Treat yourself with this healthy comfort food topped with fresh berries.
There are so many things you can do with fresh strawberries when they are in season. I bought a whole flat so I could use some right away and freeze the rest for later desserts and smoothies.
They made a luscious topping for a healthy version of multi-grain waffles I found in a cookbook by Eating Well — Comfort Foods Made Healthy. They weren't kidding. Crunchy, tasty hot waffles with berries were indeed very comforting on a cold weekend morning.
Everyone's waffle iron is a different size thus it's hard to translate serving size into the number of waffles. The recipe serves 8 if everyone gets 32 square inches of average thickness waffles (2 squares from an 8 inch by 8-inch waffle iron divided into 4 squares).
I froze leftover waffles to reheat in the toaster another day. In my opinion, the commercial frozen waffles don't even come close.
