Granola waffles and butter pecan syrup

I finally got around to making these muffins after our meal plan has had some challenges. They are based on a Betty Crocker recipe, but I changed it up a little bit. The syrup came from something I saw on the food network, but I don't remember what show I was watching.

James said these tasted a little like pecan pie for breakfast. I thought the waffle was light and tasty. The cereal added a nice crunch to the texture of the waffle.


Granola waffles:
1 1/2 c Bisquick (or whatever brand - this is just what I have still)
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 T vanilla soy protein powder (you could leave this out)
1/2 c Kashi cereal (I didn't have any granola so I just crushed up some of this cereal)
2 eggs
1 1/2 c milk
3 T vanilla yogurt
3 T oil

Mix all ingredients together while preheating your waffle iron. Follow directions for your waffle iron to make yummy waffles.

Butter Pecan syrup (this is a half batch, if you have to feed more than two people double the recipe)
1 T butter
1/4 pecans (I kept mine whole, but you could chop them up.)
1/2 c syrup

In a saucepan melt butter over medium low heat. Add pecans and cook for several minutes. Do not let butter brown too much. Add the syrup and cook for about 2-3 more minutes and then remove the pan from the heat. The syrup will be thinner because of the addition of butter, but it will still be very tasty!
