Banana Waffles

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.


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

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 small ripe bananas

Cooking spray


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.
