Here's a sweet spin on a healthy breakfast-sandwich recipe. Other seasonal fruit, such as blueberries or sliced peaches, would be tasty toppers too.

  • ¼ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint or basil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 frozen whole-grain waffles, toasted (see Tips)
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup sliced fresh strawberries


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine ricotta, mint (or basil) and vanilla in a small bowl. Drizzle each waffle with 1 teaspoon syrup. Top one waffle with the ricotta mixture and strawberries and cover with the other waffle.
  • Tips: For a healthy frozen waffle, look for whole grains listed first (after water) in the ingredient list, with at least 3 grams of fiber per 2-waffle serving. And go for those that are at or below 200 calories, 4 grams of sugar and 350 mg sodium for 2 waffles.

Absolutely delicious however I didn't have ricotta or maple syrup on hand so I used cottage cheese and honey instead. That's what I like about this recipe because you can use what you have on hand
