Autumn calls for fall-themed waffles, a peach owl, and fallen apples.
We absolutely love autumn and all the good food the harvest brings. Inspired by the aromas and colors of the season, we created fall-themed waffles.
The autumn waffles breakfast is perfect for enjoying with the kids and with the grownups too. Because who doesn’t enjoy crispy waffles topped with peach owls and fallen apples?
Follow our tips on putting together the Fall Themed Waffles, making a peach owl, and a fallen apple harvest!
Before putting together the autumn waffles, prep all the fruit by slicing and creating the design on a plate or a chopping block for easy assembly. This also helps guide the placing of the fruit to form the autumn waffle design.
The prepping tools you will need for the fall-themed waffles are a chopping block, cookie cutters, one for leaves, one for flower shapes, one small round, and a paring knife with a flexible blade.
The base for the fall-themed design is crispy freezer waffles. You can choose the one that best fits your family’s palate. We chose an apple cinnamon flavor. Toast the waffles before using.
For the fall-themed waffle with the peach owl, we are using fresh peaches to create the body and the feathers. Two rounds of banana and two blueberries for the eyes. And a red grape to form the owl’s beak and the top feather in the head.
The fall-themed waffle with the fallen apple has one petite apple, one cherry, red and green apples, and blueberries.
The garnishes for the fall-themed waffles include green grapes cut into fall leaves designs and rounds, red grapes in the vine, cutouts of apples and syrups.
The cute peach owl is dressed with real maple syrup. And the apple harvest is drizzled with homemade apple syrup.
The kid-friendly Autumn Waffles are fun and nutritious.
Many times it isn’t easy to introduce the kids to a variety of seasonal fruits and foods. I have found that making it fun for them helps. So making the fall-themed waffles is a good excuse to have them help in the kitchen too.
Using familiar ingredients as the freezer waffles and cookie cutters to play with the food makes the autumn waffles breakfast a good option to incorporate more fruits in the daily intake.
The syrups are optional, and you can pair the fall-themed waffles with a glass of milk for a balanced breakfast option.
