Peanut Butter Sandwich Waffle Sticks: are they breakfast? Are they lunch? Guess what? They’re both!

These Peanut Butter Sandwich Waffle Sticks are the perfect easy and fast breakfast with only 4 ingredients!

Yesterday was the first day I worked out with my trainer since the beginning of January. I’ve been exercising (mostly cardio) at the gym every day, but I haven’t done my normal strength training and hard trainer workouts in about 6 weeks. Guess what? Running 2 miles several times a week is not the same thing as an hour of strength training.

I got home yesterday morning and promptly wanted a nap and to eat the kitchen. I pushed off the nap since I was so famished…so I made waffles. That’s perfectly normal right? Work out, come home and eat waffle sandwiches dipped in syrup.

Sounds like a pretty balanced thing to me. (<–Why I workout with a trainer. I consider him a business expense. It’s too bad the IRS doesn’t agree.)

Peanut Butter Waffle Sticks

I absolutely love waffles. I think I love them more than pancakes. I definitely like them more than french toast. For me? Waffles are what I crave when I want syrup. I think it’s something about the crunchy outside and the soft inside.

When I made these, I was craving waffles but I wasn’t craving making batter. In essence, I was feeling lazy, which is a pretty normal thing for me. I mean, would you rather read a book and watch trashy reality TV or do laundry and work? #TeamLazy

Anyway, I was trying to figure out how to achieve laziness and get waffles at the same time when I remembered these waffle sandwiches I made for Pillsbury. I’d made them using Grands Biscuits.

And that’s when I had a light bulb moment: I could make waffles from biscuits. No mixing, no bowls to wash. And? And I could stuff them with peanut butter. Then I could dip them in syrup and everyone would be happy (except my trainer).

These Peanut Butter Sandwich Waffle Sticks are the perfect easy and fast breakfast with only 4 ingredients!

So I did it and it was wonderful.

Let’s break down the recipe:

Start with a can of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, but not the flaky kind. Cut them in half like you’re making a sandwich. (Because guess what? You are making a sandwich.) Spread some peanut butter on one half the raw biscuit. If you want, add some honey or jelly. Or hey, chocolate chips? Sandwich the two raw biscuit halves and crimp the edges. This is an important step so your peanut butter doesn’t leak all over the waffle maker. #truestory

All waffle makers cook differently. I heated mine to medium high and they cooked in about 1-2 minutes. Once the biscuits are golden brown, they’re done. Let them cool a little, then slice them up and dip them in syrup.

And here is where this recipe gets even better: it’s a twofer.

1. Use these for breakfast. Dip them in syrup.

OR…

2. Skip the syrup and put them in baggies for lunches. You can freeze them individually and if you add them to a lunchbox the night before, they’ll be defrosted by lunchtime. It’s a (sort of) homemade uncrustable!!

Any recipe that can do double duty is a top notch one in my book. We loved these waffle sticks both ways. But I loved them even more with syrup. Because, well. Syrup, duh.

Peanut Butter Waffle Sandwich Sticks

This easy breakfast ready is done in minutes and can be frozen for fast morning meals! Make peanut butter sandwiches with refrigerated biscuits and cook them in a waffle maker. Dip in syrup for a fun breakfast!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (8 biscuits), NOT the “flakey” kind
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly or honey, optional
  • Syrup, for serving, optional

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to medium-high.
  2. Open the can of biscuits and cut each biscuit in half like you’re making a sandwich. Place about 2 teaspoons of peanut butter on one side of the raw biscuit dough. If desired, top with some jam or honey. Place the top raw half of the biscuit on top and pinch the edges to seal. (The sealing is important or peanut butter will leak all over your waffle maker!)
  3. Depending on the size of your waffle maker, cook one sandwich at a time. (My waffle maker is a standard round size and I make one in the center.) Cook about 1-2 minutes until golden. Time will vary depending on your waffle maker, so just watch the first few and see how long they take.
  4. Cool slightly (or completely) before serving. These can be cut into strips and dipped in syrup or you can even just serve them as a sandwich for lunch.
  5. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month. To reheat, simply microwave until warm. You can also toast them to make them crunchy. Or just place a frozen sandwich in a lunch box the night before and it’ll be defrosted by lunch the next day!

  1. Strength training is where it’s at, Dorothy! As much as I hate doing it, I really like the results. But while it’s happening, oh, the burning pain. Not a fan of that.
    But I am a huge fan of these waffles! Brilliant to use the biscuits! And I’ve been putting PB between my waffles since I was little tiny. They’re so good that way!

  2. The gym that I go to gave me a free trial for physical training last year and I eagerly signed up for my appointment. The day after the workout, I couldn’t move! I used so many muscles in my body that hadn’t been utilized in such a long time. Although I can’t afford a PT regularly, I still use the exercises that I learned in that session during my regular workouts. 

    I love waffles, too! They remind me of Saturday mornings at my grandmother’s house as a child. Dippers are even better! 🙂

  3. Best waffles sticks every, Dorothy! I can’t get over how easy these are! What a great idea to use canned biscuits! Can’t wait to try these out! Pinned!

  4. I love, LOVE how simple and approachable your recipes are alawys. Nothing crazy just like I love! And these sound absolutely perfect :)Also good luck with the strength training – that is awesome you are working so hard and with a trainer. You’re inspiring!! (Like how do you do it all?!)

    • Aw, thank you Chelsea!! That means a lot to hear. Sometimes I wonder if something is TOO easy, you know?? 🙂 How do I do it all, hahahaa. You should see me this week. Total chaos!

  5. I had to laugh at “Eat the kitchen.” Story of my life after a workout!
    And these dippers are everything my dreams are made up. Waffles and peanut butter? SIGN ME UP. Pinned!

  6. What an insanely awesome breakfast! Definitely will be a winner with my kiddos!

    Happy Wednesday Dorothy!

  7. So simple and so satisfying! I’m pretty sure my skating coach wouldn’t like me eating these either, but hey – she’ll never know! 😉

  8. oh my gawd, Dorothy . . I feel like the heavens have opened and the angels are singing. .  for reals . . WOW! I freaking love this idea!!!! You made Peanut Butter Sandwich Waffle Sticks with Pillsbury Grands Biscuit dough?!!! I think this is freaking brilliant!!! and I haven’t done strength training in ages but if you ask me, you totally earned the waffle dippers! 

  9. You’re killing me with how delicious these look! I can’t wait to try the biscuits on the waffle iron, brilliant! 

  10. Oh yes, these are the work of a genius! I love pb sandwiches, they are definitely my favourite type. I do not own a waffle maker but I do have a panini press, will this work as well? Pinned! 

  11. How in the world do you come up with such simple yet genius ideas? I love these dippers, Dorothy! You definitely deserve a reward as delicious as this after a hard workout, for reals!

  12. Genius idea, Dorothy! These ARE the reason we workout, right?

  13. Oh my gosh you had me laughing because I just started lifting weights last week and it has been before we were married since I have done this much physical activity!!  So I totally understand because I feel like that is all I am doing is eating.  It is probably a little counterproductive but oh well.  Anyway these waffle sticks are sheer genius!!  And #TeamLazy sign me up!  Pinned!!

  14. You used Pillsbury Grands Biscuits to make waffles? That might be the smartest thing ever! 

  15. So many things I love about this – that you repurposed Grands into WAFFLES!! And that there’s PB sandwiched in there…OMG.

    And the honey/maple syrup + PB combo….perfection!!

  16. SUCH a great idea!! I also love waffles best and esp. when there’s pb involved!

  17. Go team lazy!!!  I find it so hilarious that after working out for an hour you came home and made waffles 🙂  It kinda sounds like something I did recently, except it was eat HALF a bag of those dang cadbury mini eggs with the crunchy candy shell.  Ugh…an hour of hard work out the window for me every time. #noregrets     

  18. Oh. my. goodness. I know a bunch of navy guys who will love these. I guess I’ll have to send my boyfriend to work with these. I’ll be so popular!

  19. I seriously need your motivation!  I walk to the fridge and back.  It’s pathetic.  But now I want these so now I’m even more pathetic girl.

  20. I’m always looking for ideas to pack for my lunch. This sounds like a perfect option!

  21. What a genius idea! Simple + delicious! LOVE!

  22. Oh gosh, what a fabulous idea to make little waffle sandwich dippers! I had a friend in college who always put peanut butter on his pancakes and waffles instead of butter and syrup. He would love these! As anyone would. 🙂

  23. Such a fun idea! And love that they are stuffed with peanut butter. Total winner and easy to boot. Pinning 🙂

  24. These are so much fun!!  My boys would go nuts for them!  …..ok and me too 🙂

  25. Dorothy, this is a great idea!! I put peanut butter on my waffles all the time and never thought to  make them this way or even dip them is syrup…duh!!  I can’t wait to try it!!! 🙂 

  26. This is such great idea! And it looks so delicious. Definitely going to try this soon 🙂

  27. These are so fun! I love that you made waffles with Pillsbury Grands, so simple and brilliant! The peanut butter stuffing sounds perfect! Yay for getting back into strength training – I’ve been putting it off too and you are motivating me to get back on it again.

  28. Oh my word!!!  I had totally forgotten about your waffle sandwiches, so I am soooooo glad you shared these easy waffle sticks.  There are even biscuits in my fridge, so my kids are going to love you!!!  This so fun and totally genius!  LOL and yes, strength training is a beast but works so well!  Stay at it!!!

  29. I LOVE peanut butter / waffle combinations! The peanut butter gives you a little bit of fat and protien so you are fuller longer… plus it is delicious!! I need to make these ASAP!!!

  30. I love waffles, and many times I spread peanut butter and jelly on them too. I would love to try peanut butter and syrup as well. 

  31. These look awesome, and I foresee a Nutella-banana version happening in my house this weekend. =)
