Warm Peanut Ginger Agave or Maple Sauce

I love to combine ginger with many things, peanut butter being just one of them. And of course, maple syrup deserves to be invited to any party. One of the wonderful things about food–especially waffles–is that you get to blend things that you enjoy.

This waffle topping recipe blends sweetness with two types of gentle warmth: temperature and a bit of spice. If you live somewhere with cold winters as we do, this can be especially welcome!

  1. Yes! This sounds amazing. I always slather plain waffles with PB, but I love that this turns it into an all-in-one syrup.
