Once upon a time, I made waffles for breakfast a lot! As our sons grew up, started working, then went off to college, I no longer made big breakfasts on a regular basis. Last night, I had two bananas that needed to be used or tossed, so I pulled out an old favorite, banana waffles.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons flax meal
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted or softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 small ripe bananas
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Place milk, butter, eggs, vanilla, & bananas in a blender & blend well. Pour into bowl with dry ingredients & mix well.
Spray hot waffle iron with cooking spray to prevent sticking & cook according to your waffle iron’s directions.
Makes approximately 4 cups of batter.
For my waffle iron, a traditional 4 sectioned square Sunbeam, this recipe makes 4 waffles. By traditional, I mean not a Belgian waffle maker.
