Overnight Whole Wheat Waffles with Cranberry Lemon Chutney
Saturday mornings are usually lazy days, sleeping in as long as little man lets us, a late brunch and eventually making our way to any errands or chores on the due list. I picked up a giant bag of fresh cranberries at Sam's Club yesterday and knew a cranberry chutney was somehow going to be incorporated in today's brunch. Waffles are always a favorite and I LOVE how amazing this new recipe turned out! Super light and soft in the middle and crisp on the outside no one will know you used all whole wheat flour and no sugar!
As for the chutney, so delicious and versatile. Fantastic with the waffles and I'm thinking would also make an incredible side for Thanksgiving turkey! Fresh cranberries, lemon zest, lemon juice and sweetened with honey, this chutney is ready in an easy 10 minutes.
