Healthy Waffle Topping Ideas

By Sarah S – Jenny Craig

Is there anything better than toasty, golden-brown waffles? We don’t think so either. That’s why our chefs and nutritionists have created our very own Classic Waffles. At just 160 calories, these waffles are made with whole wheat flour and wheat bran, and are a comforting, warm canvas for sweet and savory toppings. Here are six delicious (and healthy) waffle topping ideas to try. 

Berry good

Is there anything better than waffles topped with fresh berries? Put together a ½ cup assortment of your favorite berries, like blackberries and strawberries, or blueberries and raspberries. Satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilt, all while knowing you’re getting a healthy dose of antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.

Melons, mint and maple-flavored syrup! Add these three to the top of your classic waffles for a sweet, minty treat. A medley of melons, including watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe, pack a vitamin punch, with high amounts of both vitamins A and C. Stick to 1 cup of melon to stay on track.

Apple pie

Create your own apple pie for breakfast! Take one small, juicy and tart apple and slice thinly; then mix with a dash of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Then, warm up Jenny Craig’s Breakfast Syrup and top the apples. Sprinkle cinnamon for a finishing touch to your “apple pie” waffles.

Caprese waffle

Top classic waffles with a makeshift caprese salad. To make this flavorful garnish, roughly cut tomatoes and cucumbers and chop fresh, fragrant basil. Mix together with Jenny Craig’s Balsamic Dressing.


Did you know basil is a good source of blood-clotting vitamin K? Just 2 tablespoons of chopped, fresh basil contains 27% of your recommended daily value. For an added boost of protein, use 1 oz. or ¼ cup shredded fat-free or low-fat cheese, which counts as 1 protein choice. 

Flavor of summer

Have squash and sprigs of rosemary to use? Put them on your waffle! Evoke an essence of summer by topping your waffles with ribbons of zucchini, sprigs of rosemary and a pinch of garlic and Parmesan cheese. Zucchini is rich in various vitamins, manganese, and dietary fiber.
