Happy New Year!

It’s a new year.  Time to start fresh, and wipe the slate clean.  A new year gives us a chance to set goals and make changes in our life.  When you set your mind to something, anything is possible.

Maybe one of your goals this year is to start your day eating breakfast.  If that is the case, these Banana Bread Waffles are a tasty way to start the day.  They are light, fluffy and delicious drizzled with warm maple syrup or a dollop of whipped cream.  Sprinkle with some chopped walnuts and it will taste like a slice of banana bread.  De-lish!

I usually make one batch which makes about 5 or 6 waffles.  My kids probably eat one each at the most, so I freeze the rest which makes it handy.  The rest of the week, the waffles are ready to go in the freezer and I pop them in the toaster and they taste like they just came off the waffle iron. 

These also make a yummy snack.  Toast a wedge and top with some peanut butter and a few banana slices for a little taste of heaven in your mouth.

  3. Thank you so much for this delicious and wholesome waffle recipe! I made it with my little 4 1/2 year olds – it’s a great kids in the kitchen recipe. We subbed out 1/2 the AP flour for whole wheat, and it was still light and fluffy and sweet. Thank you again for sharing! Pinned to share and use again and again… and again.

  4. I’m making these right now and they are fantastic! I made 1 1/2 batches (I had 3 bananas) and added banana extract since I had it and have had it forever lol. I also used pumpkin seeds I toasted instead of walnuts. Thank you so much for a yummy breakfast. (Oh I also subbed 1c whole wheat flour for the 3c I needed in 1 1/2 batches).

  5. After promising my kids banana bread for breakfast, I realized that I was missing one of the ingredients in my go to recipe. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this post! The waffles turned out perfectly in a fraction of the time usually spent baking loaves. I’ve added it to my rotating recipe file 🙂
