Add half the strawberries, the maple syrup and the lemon juice into a bowl and roughly mash them with a fork.
Stir in the remaining strawberries and mint and let them marinate for about 30 mins in the fridge.
Make the waffles:
Preheat waffle maker.
Whisk together milk, butter and eggs and set aside.
Add flour into a large bowl and make a hole in the centre.
Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the flour to make a batter and don't worry if there are some lumps.
Cook waffles according to your machine’s instructions until all the batter is finished
Repeat until all the mixture is finished.
