  1. This recipe is a keeper! Next time I’ll try making syrup with brown sugar. Also consider serving with sliced banana. Hubs said it should have a grape jelly syrup. I will be great for a big crowd with a variety of toppings: bacon, banana, marshamallow fluff, jelly syrup, chocolate chips and the peanut butter syrup. My kid also thinks it’ll be great leftover as sandwiches or topped with ice cream.


    I tried this recipe today and used 1 1/2 cups of milk & 1/2 cup water instead of the full portions of milk to save on milk in my household. Loved the recipe but the syrup is quite sweet and does NOT make enough for the amount of waffles that the recipe makes. The syrup was not a huge hit at my house but we will be making this waffle recipe again as we LOVE peanut butter in my house. Found on pinterest & posted to my recipes i’ve tried & love board. Thanks for the recipe! <3 We have leftover batter for another morning at our house now! <3

  3. How many weaffles does this recipe make?

  4. Amanda Curtis says:

    I am a peanut butter fanatic. Everything is better with peanut butter on it. I’ve always put peanut butter on my waffles, and then added syrup. It’s delicious! Now I have a recipe for peanut butter syrup. Thank you for the inspiration.

    • Peanut butter and syrup sounds pretty good, but I bet you’ll enjoy this recipe even more. I’m a peanut butter fan myself, and I love it!

  5. It’s hard for me to say because that has never happened to me. I’d try putting it in the blender. That might help emulsify it together.

  6. Jennifer says:

    This recipe is soooo good. And the syrup makes these waffles to die for. Thanks for sharing! I will totally make these again and again!

  7. How much syrup does this make?? Will it fill a mason jar?

  8. Hmm YUM! It sounds like the perfect breakfast this weekend

  9. Jo Skidmore says:

    I rarely do “sweet” breakfasts because I have to have protein with each meal. Although I don’t do waffles, pancakes I do do on occasion. Gonna add PB to pancake batter and top with the devine sounding PB syrup! What a nice protein break from eggs and omelettes. Thanks!

  10. Peanut butter syruuuup?!!! I am so excited to try this. Thanks so much for the mention! I’m glad you like the waffles!!
