Waffles with Butter Pecan Syrup

I found this recipe in Paula Deen's The Deen Family Cookbook, and I was really excited to try it.  This was a great recipe, but the Granola Waffles aren't really granola waffles, they just have granola on top.  Despite that, we enjoyed it, Aaron and I more than the boys, because funky syrup just doesn't sit well with them ;).  The syrup for 1/10 of the recipe has 179 calories in it, and the waffles have 156 calories for 16 waffles.  This is a great basic waffle recipe, and the syrup was yummy.  Aaron and I gave it an 8, Noah gave it a perfect 10, and Owen gave it a 7.  

Corrie’s Christmas Granola Waffles with Butter Pecan Syrup


2 T butter

1 c chopped pecans

1 c maple syrup

¼ t salt


2 c all-purpose flour

3 T sugar

1 t baking powder

¾ t salt

½ t baking soda

3 eggs

2 c buttermilk

4 T butter, melted

1 c granola

To make the syrup, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the pecans and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.  Add the maple syrup and salt and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes, until thickened.
       To make the waffles, heat a waffle iron.  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter.  Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and fold to combine.
       Cook the waffles in the waffle iron.  Sprinkle the granola over the waffles and serve immediately with the buttered pecan syrup.
