I have been eating a lot of bagels lately. In fact, I was averaging at least one bagel a day last week! When I make my own bagels, I tend to make several batches and freeze half to enjoy later. Recently I ended up with too many bagels and took some to work to share.
I use the recipe from Vegan Brunch because it never fails and it creates chewy, authentic bagels. You can find the recipe here. These have been sliced and spread with homemade cream cheese, dipped into soup, and made into sandwiches. Hooray for bagels!
I know what you must be thinking – Don’t most people eat waffles in the morning? Sure, I bet most people do eat waffles in the morning. But, I usually eat waffles for dinner. Today was different! Tim and I ate waffles for a late breakfast. I have been meaning to make the Peanut Butter Waffles from Vegan Brunch for a long time and the perfect opportunity struck this weekend. We even used homemade peanut butter! We don’t mess around when it comes to waffles. These were kept simple with just a drizzle of maple syrup (made locally near Tim’s parents’ house in the great state of Ohio).
Some roasted chopped peanuts would have been lovely on top but we didn’t have any left after making peanut butter. Next time we will toss a handful of chocolate chips into the batter. Dessert for breakfast!
