Cinnamon Sugar Waffles with Cinnamon Peanut Butter Maple Drizzle

Over the past couple of months, we've gone from a pancake family to a waffle family. (It would probably sound more impressive to say we've gone from a 5K family to a marathon family, but...we'd rather eat waffles than run.)

Once I discovered that leftover waffles taste so much better reheated than pancakes do, they've become a staple breakfast around here. Freeze the leftovers, pop them in at 350° oven, bake for 10 minutes. Perfect.

Cinnamon-sugar toast is such a comfort food for me...we had it so many mornings growing up and it really reminds me of my mom. That's one of the many reasons I love Land O' Lakes® Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread. It spreads beautifully right from the fridge and brings back lots of childhood memories.

I decided to use the spread to make Cinnamon Sugar Waffles. You'll really get a triple shot of it as the it's in the waffle batter, spread on the warm waffles, and in the cinnamon peanut butter maple drizzle. Do NOT skip the drizzle. Oh my gosh.

This recipe makes about 9-10 nice, thick waffles. Once they come off of the waffle iron, you'll put them in a 200° oven while you cook up the rest. This way, everyone can eat at the same time, and the time in the oven also helps to crisp them up a little bit.

Cinnamon Sugar Buttermilk Waffles 
 {makes 9-10 large waffles}

2 eggs
1/4 cup Land O’ Lakes® Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread
3 TBSP light brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 & 3/4 cup buttermilk
1 & 3/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Maple Drizzle 
 2 TBSP Land O’ Lakes® Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

For topping
Land O’ Lakes Cinnamon® Sugar Butter Spread
powdered sugar
cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 200. Coat a waffle iron with vegetable oil and heat.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs well. Whisk in the Land O’ Lakes® Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread and brown sugar until well mixed. Add in the vegetable oil, vanilla, and buttermilk; whisk until combined. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the mixture the wet ingredients, whisking just until combined.

Scoop the batter onto the heated waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. Once cooked, place directly on the rack of the warmed oven. Re-coat waffle iron, if necessary, and continue cooking the waffles.

Once the waffles are cooked, make the drizzle. Melt the Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread with the peanut butter, stirring until smooth. Stir in the maple syrup until combined. Keep warm. Remove waffles from the oven. Spread with Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread. Spoon the drizzle over the top and sprinkle on powdered sugar and cinnamon sugar.

Ah, these could almost make me into a morning person.
