Thankfully, we’ve compiled some super easy recipes that are just as impressive as anything that would take twice as long.
And hey, these recipes are perfect even if you’re #singleAF – there’s nothing like being able to enjoy another serving of breakfast for yourself.

Here’s to finding new ways to eat waffles.
