Low-Cal Waffle Combos
The freezer aisle of your grocery store is stocked with a hearty selection of whole-grain toaster waffles that have less than 100 calories per serving. That's a low-calorie, grain-rich base for tasty combos that go way beyond butter and syrup. The fruity options are great, but we love savory ones, too—a riff on chicken-and-waffles and a ham-and-egg special. Nutrition information is for one Van's Multigrain Belgian waffle plus toppings.
Our Peaches & Cream Waffle—with its light vanilla ice cream, sliced peaches, and cinnamon—will leave the kids begging for more.

Green, Egg, and Ham Waffle
This savory tip-of-the-hat to Dr. Seuss's classic will go a long way with the kids on name recognition alone, but it's the flavor that will make it one of your breakfast staples. Avocado and prosciutto complement the poached egg for a snack you'll crave breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Berries and Browned Butter Waffle
A strawberry topping with sliced almonds adds crunch, and a dash of brown sugar amplifies the sweet flavor.

Chicken and Waffles
A riff on traditional chicken and waffles, our version supplements shredded skinless chicken in place of the usual fried fowl. Drizzled honey gives this protein-packed combo a subtle sweetness.

Skinny Elvis Waffle
This aptly-named breakfast treat would've delighted the King of Rock 'n' Roll, with its sweet peanut butter and crispy bacon complemented by delicious sliced bananas.
