What you'll need:

1 1/2 frozen buttermilk waffles, thawed
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple in juice
1/2 cup chopped mango
1 banana, sliced

2 eggs

1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1 c granola
1/4 c chopped macadamia nuts

2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 tbsp butter melted
2 tbsp strawberry spreadable fruit

Put it all together:

Heat oven to 350°F. Break apart waffles into 1- to 2-inch pieces; place in bottom of your state shaped skillet. Drain pineapple, reserving juice in small bowl; set pineapple aside for later. Gently stir in the bananas and mangoes into juice to coat. With slotted spoon, place bananas evenly over waffles; discard any remaining juice.

In medium bowl, beat eggs, granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar with wire whisk until blended. Stir in drained pineapple. Pour mixture over waffles and fruit. In another medium bowl, mix granola, nuts, flour, remaining 3 tablespoons brown sugar and the butter until crumbly; sprinkle over top.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Drizzle top with heated spreadable fruit.
