Even the most organized of us sometimes run out of an ingredient, but to run out of syrup on the day one makes waffles is unforgivable. Or so I've been told.
With a batch of steaming Banana Waffles (our Blueberry Waffle recipe with bananas replacing the blueberries) ready to be eaten, Liv shook her head in despair as less than 1/2 of a teaspoon of syrup slowly dripped from our empty bottle.

Jelly or Jam
Simply separate your waffles and proceed to make a sandwich as you would with bread. Make extra... you're gonna love 'em!
