Whole grain waffles topped with fresh oranges and citrus syrup make a great snack for after-school or after sports! The syrup keeps well in the refrigerator for a week, and it tastes just as good cold as it does warm. Using store bought toaster waffles makes this recipe easy for kids to assemble if the syrup is already made.


  • 2 Sunkist® oranges juiced (~ ¾ cup)
  • 1/2 Sunkist® grapefruit juiced (~ ½ cup)
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 4 whole grain toaster waffles, toasted
  • 2 Sunkist® oranges peeled and cut into quarters, and then cut into bite-size pieces
  • 4 Tbsp. slivered almonds (optional)

Instructions: (Makes 4 servings)

  • In a small 1-quart saucepan, combine the orange juice, grapefruit juice, and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium and cook for 18-20 minutes, until the mixture thickens and reduces by half. You should end up with about a 1/2 cup of syrup.
  • To assemble, top each waffle with orange pieces, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons syrup. Top each waffle with a tablespoon of slivered almonds to add some protein and healthy fats.
