Banana Waffles have the dreamiest crunch to softness ratio, and deliver the best flavor of subtle-yet-sweet banana fruitiness in this hearty breakfast dish that the whole family will salivate over and love.


  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 tablespoons light oil, such as canola or vegetable
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the banana and use a fork to mash very well.
  3. Add the oil and eggs, and beat to combine well.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon to the bowl, and stir until just combined.
  5. Add the milk and stir until just combined.
  6. Make the waffles according to the directions that came with your waffle iron.
  7. When one waffle is done, let it rest on a wire wrack, taking care not to stack the waffles (the steam they produce makes them soggy if you stack them on a plate).
  8. Serve hot with your favorite toppings such a maple syrup, buttermilk syrup, sliced bananas, pecans, whipped cream, or even chocolate sauce, Nutella, or peanut butter on top.


  • You can sub the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour without any issues, just add an extra splash of milk if the mixture is too thick.
  • This is an easy recipe to scale up if you are cooking for a crowd.
  • You can use an overripe banana if you have one, but any yellow banana will still work great.
