WeightWatchers Belgian Waffles – 4 old WW points, 5 WW Points+

weight watchers belgian waffles recipe picture

The first time I tried Belgian waffles (gaufres) was this summer while on holiday in Brussels. I waited in a long line at a waffle stand just next to Manneken Pis and managed to get my hands on a huge waffle sprinkled with a little powdered sugar and topped with sliced bananas, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. I fell in love instantly! The golden and crispy surface, the chewy yet tender crumb within, the topping, everything was perfect! Here’s a recipe that gets as close to the original as possible. Top with your favorite fruit and whipped cream, and enjoy!
