Decadent peanut butter waffles are what weekend breakfasts are made for
Make your morning waffles amazing by adding peanut butter to the batter. These homemade buttermilk waffles get a nice, hefty dose of real peanut butter swirled into the batter for a breakfast that could even double as dessert.
To make these waffles even more decadent, I topped them with creamy vanilla Greek yogurt, sliced bananas and mini dark chocolate chips. But that wasn't quite enough, so I decided these waffles needed one more thing to make them perfect. A drizzle of both chocolate and caramel sauces complete these over-the-top waffles. It's totally optional but so worth it.
