I was a PB & J sandwich kind of kid. I’m still very much into peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The creaminess, the contrast in taste, all that squishy jelly! The jelly was my favourite part, and I always ALWAYS had to have strawberry, no other flavour would do. To this day, no other flavour will do (except blueberry or raspberry at times) and I LOVE peanut butter. Okay, so maybeย I’ve taken it on in a healthier way, but nothing replaces a pb and j sandwich especially on a bad day. These Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jelly Compote Wafflesย are here for you to bring back those delicious memories.

Now let’s get this straight. Don’t let the name fool you, don’t let the fact that it’s vegan or refined-sugar free or flour less fool you that these aren’t straight up comfort food. That these waffles aren’t filled with peanut butter flavour, and that that jelly compote isn’t saying come to mama.

Not, literally.

Without a doubt, I’m making these waffles again. The first time I made them to shoot, it was kind of a crazy day so I KIND of ate all three servings by myself. I let Mr. Bakes take a piece, watching him enviously and remember the golden rule that we must share even our most precious belongings. Plus, he did help make them (aren’t I so kind). The second time they were made he wasn’t around so oops. ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried not to go overboard on the peanut butter in these waffles, but you definitely taste the rich flavour. And the jelly compote? Oh boy. It’s glorious strawberries reduced down with maple syrup and a bit of lemon juice and the result is closer to a jelly like compote syrup that when the camera goes off ends up getting poured ALL over these waffles.

Oooops. Not sorry.

I was actually pretty impressed by this breakfast, and took inspiration from my flour less apple pie pancakes, swapped the eggs out for peanut butter and added the compote. I promise, you’ll love these peanut butter and jelly waffles. If it was up to me, I’d have this for breakfast everyday, and a pb & j sandwich for lunch and dinner.

Told you I was that kind of kid.
