Check out this recipe for an easy banana batter that tastes just like banana bread, but this time made in your waffle maker.
Last night I got the dry ingredients ready for these banana bread waffles so once morning came I could easily get them going. To speed things up even quicker I ran the liquid ingredients through the blender. That was a whopping 10 second job!
I had a frozen banana that I thawed and one spotted one in the fruit bowl. You’ll need two for this recipe, just make sure they’re both ripe. There is no added sugar in the batter, only sweetness from the bananas.
This recipe makes four full waffles plus this last one that’s just a little less than complete. Size and amount will vary depending on your equipment. I let our leftover waffles cool completely then froze them in plastic freezer bags. I always love knowing there’s an easy breakfast waiting in the freezer!
