While I was vacationing in Colorado, I happened to try the sweetest, most delectable dessert ever...
Banana Split Waffles!
While staying at the beautiful Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado, we had breakfast one morning at the Meritage Restaurant on the first floor. It was literally the best breakfast of my life!
I was lucky enough to receive the recipe for the banana split waffles from the chef when I arrived home and set out to try and recreate it - with a few personal touches - back in my own kitchen.
What you need:
- Waffles (duh)
Here's a secret tip...when I make waffles, I use regular old boxed pancake and waffle mix but when the recipe calls for milk or water, I substitute half of it with International Delight coffee creamer! It makes your waffles a little richer and sweeter! For these, I used the Coldstone cream flavor.
- Nutella or Chocolate peanut butter (the restaurant used Nutella but I substituted chocolate peanut butter)
- Chocolate chips (this is my addition, in the waffle batter)
- 4 strawberries, sliced
- ½ a banana, sliced
- whipped cream
- caramel syrup
- chocolate sprinkles (this is my addition)
Make your waffles according to the box directions and add about a tablespoon of chocolate chips per waffle. Spread your chocolate on the bottom of the plate and place the waffle right on top!
Layer your bananas and strawberries, then drizzle caramel syrup over the top. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles!
