Save The Ripe Banana’s To Make Banana Waffles!


My little ones love banana’s.  When I buy them they eat a whole bunch in a few days while other weeks the bunch sits on my kitchen counter untouched.  With 7 of us, soon 8 our grocery bill is quite hefty. I hate throwing food away.  In the past I normally take the old bananas and made homemade banana bread but this time I was looking to make something different.  So I came up with……..

Homemade Banana Waffles
Serves 7
Write a review
  1. 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  2. 2 Tbsp Sugar
  3. 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  4. ΒΌ Tsp Salt
  5. ΒΌ Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  6. 1 Egg, Lightly Beaten
  7. 1-1/2 Cups Almond Milk
  8. 2 Ripe Mashed Bananas
  9. You can use various toppings such as fresh fruit, honey or syrup
  1. Allow your waffle iron to get hot while you are preparing the ingredients.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, egg and almond milk into mixer and mix. While this is mixing mash up 2 ripe bananas (I use the back of a fork to mash them) and then add them to the mixer and mix till all the ingredients are fully blended.
  3. I use an ice cream scooper to scoop out the waffle batter into the waffle iron.
  4. Once all the waffles are cooked add your preferred topping. Yum!

I am not exaggerating when I say my kids devoured these! Next time I make them I will triple the batch and freeze some for those busy mornings.  We actually had this with dinner along with scrambled eggs but breakfast, dinner or even for a tasty dessert works too!
