Cherry Almond Compote- A quick, easy, figure-friendly topping to use with a variety of foods.

Van’s National Foods contacted me several weeks ago, to remind me that August 24th is the day to celebrate everything waffles. Waffles are my VERY favorite breakfast, so there was no way I was going to let Waffle Day pass me by without celebrating.

Homemade waffles are great, but for hectic weekday mornings; I turn to Van’s Waffles for my waffle fix! They offer a variety of wholesome healthy waffles made with high-quality ingredients. Some of my favorite options are the gluten-free blueberry, gluten-free buckwheat with berries, mini chocolate chip, organic whole grain flax and power grains.

There are a myriad of possibilities for creating awesome waffles. I typically top my waffles with nut butter and fruit or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. This Cherry Almond Compote looks fancy, but it’s actually quick and easy. You can have it made up and ready to go while your waffles are toasting. It’s also figure-friendly and full of good for you antioxidants.
