From the minute Jacob wakes up in the morning, he has one thing on his mind: breakfast. For a while the ONLY thing he would eat was waffles. He'd wake us up every single morning and the first thing out of his mouth would be "waffles." His tastes are a little more varied now and we can get in things like bacon and eggs, but he still loves waffles most of all.

One good thing about his waffle obsession is that it prompted me to come up with new and fun ways to make waffles so that he wasn't always eating the same plain waffle for breakfast. One of his favorite recipes that I came up with is "Chunky Monkey Waffles." These are a quick easy meal to throw together for breakfast on those busy school mornings, or even a fun after school snack!

They are so simple to make! All you need is an Eggo Chocolate Chip waffle, peanut butter, banana, and a few chocolate chips.

We're going to use the peanut butter as syrup so here's a kitchen hack for you:
To get peanut butter smooth, thinned out, and easy to pour, simply microwave a small bowl of it in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirring halfway through. Once the 30 seconds are up it should be thin and after a good stir ready to use like syrup.

To make Chunky Monkey Waffles simply start with one (or more!) Eggo Chocolate Chip Waffles, lightly toasted.

Pour the peanut butter that you microwaved over it as syrup

Then slice your bananas and pile them on top

To finish it off, sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top just for fun!

Then dig in!!

I took advantage of a promotion Target is running on Eggo products right now, and you can get this promotion at all stores: buy three specially marked packages with the Crayola logo and get $5 off Crayola products.

You can find more information about this deal in the Target circular the first week of September, and the promotion ends September 30th.

This is the logo you are looking for:

You can also download a free Crayola coloring book HERE to go with your Crayola products.

This is perfect for keeping your little one busy while you are preparing their breakfast. Fueling their body and their brain is key!
