Recipe: Cinnamon Roll Waffles

So, I do like spending time on Pinterest looking at… well, everything. I came across this “recipe” that a few people had posted so I repinned it. We went grocery shopping last week and I got what I needed to make this for breakfast yesterday morning. It was oh so good! I was even able to save one for breakfast tomorrow, if it’s still in there and not eaten…

Here’s what you’ll need:
– any kind of cinnamon rolls (I used the Pillsbury Grands – Cinnabon with Cream Cheese frosting)
– Pam spray
– a Waffle maker – i got this one from Bed Bath and Beyond

First, pull apart the cinnamon rolls – in this one, there was 5.. I just put them on a plate. Make sure the waffle maker is hot and ready. Spray Pam onto both sides of the waffle maker and put one (or two) rolls on the bottom then shut the lid. Mine beeps when it’s “done” but I left them in a little longer to make sure they were done. While the last two were in the waffle maker, I took the icing and put it in a small glass dish and warmed it in the microwave for about 25 seconds. When the last cinnamon rolls were done, I had them all on a plate then drizzled the frosting over them. Wah-la … it’s that easy!

Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Crunch

Tropical Smoothie’s Peanut Butter Banana Crunch (re-create)

They, for some reason, don’t have this anymore and I’ve been waiting and waiting for it to come back. I decided to re-create it hoping it’d come out tasting somewhat the same. Here’s what I did:


Flatbread (you can also use a pita pocket)
→ Crunchy Peanut Butter (I bought Peter Pan Crunchy)
→ One banana, sliced
→ Honey
→ Granola (I bought the store brand granola cereal)
→ Non-Stick spray or butter

Step ONE
Spread the peanut butter on half of the flatbread and cover with banana slices (I couldn’t fit the whole banana on there)

Step TWO
Drizzle with honey and top with about a handful of granola.
Fold flatbread in half and place in pan with a little butter or non-stick spray. You can use a pinini press if you have one – I didn’t so I used the pan and pressed it down with a pot. Toast until golden brown.
And there you have it. I’ve had this twice, now, before posting this so I can also comment on how AWESOME it was. These things normally don’t happen to me. It tasted just like Tropical Smoothie’s. So, now they don’t need to bring it back…I can make my own! :)
Comment if you’ve tried this or have had it.
